Yes, it would be wrong to go to the wedding empty handed.  If you don’t like the person, then don’t go to the wedding and send a small gift.

Yes, very wrong. But I think you already knew that 😉

Yes, in my mind you either feel so strongly about her you decline the invite or you show up with a gift.

@AnnaFinch84:  Yes, especially if you lik the groom and want to stay friends.  If you don’t approve of his choice of a wife, don’t go to the wedding and eat the meals that they are paying for.

Yes it would be wrong to go without a gift because you don’t like the bride.  Are you sure you should be attending this wedding at all?

If you hate her so much, maybe you should just decline the invitation. If you do decide to attend, it is extremely rude to go empty handed especially for such a petty reason.

It seems kind of mean to not get a nice present because you don’t like the bride. What about the groom who you are friends with? If you hate the bride this much, maybe you should just stay home.

Yes, it would be wrong. You’re still attending their wedding and will be wined and dined. You should bring a gift.

If you feel that strongly about the bride then it would probably be best to decline the invitation.

You should definitely bring a gift. If you feel that strongly about her don’t go to the wedding.

Maybe you could give a gift that only the groom can use!Wink

Yes, that’s wrong. Decline the invitation if you dislike the bride so much.

As much as you don’t want to, you have to give a gift.  You don’t want to stoop to her crappy level by showing up empty-handed.
