A few.  A few from family and a few from old political coworkers that couldn’t make it on short notice.

We did, from about half of the people who couldn’t make it.

Speaking about my first wedding, no i did not. I always send them when I rsvp no bc that’s what I thought the proper etiquette is.

Boy, did we ever! All DH’s family members who live across the country and couldn’t make it got us very, very generous gifts. They’re Italian and send gifts for everything, lol. And our friends who couldn’t make it brought us something the next time we saw them.

People SHOULD send a gift if they are invited. Saying “no” does not mean you’re out of sending a gift.

And that’s my lttle rant about people who did not send us a gift.

I didn’t know that… Friends are getting married in Mexico next month. I was casually invited (no paper invite, no email) but we said no, as with most of our other friends. Are we supposed to get them a gift??

A few family who were invited and didn’t come gave gifts. Most friends didn’t though.

Yes, from a few. Maybe somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 of them.
