I definitely wouldn’t expect a gift from you in this situation – its awesome that you were able to go in place of someone else, and not feel slighted or anything, but knowing that, if I were the Bride and Groom, I’d feel bad if you got me a gift.

We had a similar situation at our wedding–after a last minute cancellation, I invited the roommate of a friend who was already attending.  She got us a $30 gift card to BB&B, and I have to admit I was really pleasantly surprised.  I did not invite her to get another gift, I invited her so that my $110 spent on a no-show guest wouldn’t be wasted.  I guess what I am trying to say is no, I did not expect a gift, and I thought it was really kind of her to give one. So I don’t think your friend’s brother is upset at all that you didn’t get them anything.

I agree with the others – in this situation, I wouldn’t AT ALL expect a gift.

Nope, but a small gift would still be nice to recieve.
