Quick question–if someone asks for your address to send a gift, (someone who can’t attend the wedding), is the polite thing to do just to send it to them, or to tell them that a gift isn’t necessary?
It seems like a dumb question, but when sent an email saying “give me your address so I can send you your gift” arrives, it just felt weird to automatically send it back.

Technically, a gift is NEVER “necessary” even if they do attend your wedding.
I think you should just give them your address. They’re already telling you they want to give you a gift, it’s not like you’re asking them for it. As a guest, if I called or wrote you and you were like, “oh, no gift is necessary” I would think “come on already, give me your f-ing address” LOL!
Just send a nice prompt thank you note!

Well if you want the gift, send the address.
I do believe that they should have asked someone else (your BMs or family) for your address. Or wasn’t it on your invites?

Yep, it was on the invites. That’s what I meant–that I’ve never been asked personally.
Heh, my brain is fried, I’ve been making so many big decisions lately, that the little ones make me stop like a deer in the headlights.
It’s almost over /phew

I would just send it. People do the strangest things, when it comes to weddings. I am starting to realize this.
