I think it’s proper to send a gift if you were invited – but am not sure of all the rules on that, if someone else here knows better.  🙂

You don’t have to give a gift, according to etiquette, but it’s nice to send one.

I don’t think its a must, but I would send a gift!

I think it would be a really nice thing to do. If you’re giving a gift for the wedding too…do something a little smaller for the bridal shower.

I usually give a gift if I’m invited, regardless if I’m able to attend or not.  It’s not required but I think it’s nice to do so.

It’s not required but it’s a nice gesture.  Typically I send something if I’m good friends with the bride.  If it’s someone you don’t really know I may opt not to send a gift.
