Here we gift checks at a wedding and if you bring a plus one you usually give double the amount. So your boyfriend should have already taken care of it. I would not worry about it.

Well it was rude of them to not include you in the first place.  You aren’t a plus one, you are a significant other and as such you should have been invited, by name, on the invitation.

Personally, I wouldn’t get them anything.

Honestly? I don’t think that you need to get them a small gift. Let your boyfriend do the gift, and contribute if you want, but don’t worry about a gift from yourself.

You can just stick your name on the card along with your BF’s gift.  I wouldn’t worry about it.

You’re not going giftless, you are part of a couple and your boyfriend is giving them a gift. That counts for you, too. I didn’t get two presents from every couples at my wedding, that’s nuts.

mustangwind:  Just make sure your name is also on the card that your Boyfriend or Best Friend is giving them with their gift/check/etc. I don’t see why it shouldn’t be since you guys are a couple.
