    If I was an encore bride, I wouldn’t expect gifts at all. However, I also wouldn’t show up empty handed (unless I attended his/her first wedding). I would probably do a gift in the $50 range. And grrrrr about the no-show couple.

    I would get them a nice bottle of wine or something like that. 

    Base your decision on what you feel is right not considering how they treated you…..treat others how you wish to be treated, right?

    @Meowkers: That is simply untrue.  It is actually incorrect to show up with a gift to the event itself.  It should be mailed to the bride ahead of the event.  And a gift is never required.  It is nice, and I think that if you accept the invitiation that you should bring a gift.  But I am not incorrect to not bring one.

    I would say a card and a small gift (whether that be gift card-$25 or bottle of wine). They likely aren’t loosing sleep over not getting you a gift, so don’t worry about it too much! 🙂

    A small something sent to the couple would be nice. I wouldn’t spend too much on it, but a nice token gift would do the trick.
