I don’t think that you are wrong to be frustrated. Since you aren’t going to be at the wedding to do any last minute changes, it would make sense for the bride to let you know in advance how the dress will look and what shoes and accessories she would like to be worn with it. I would just send a couple pair of tight…and some socks just in case the tights are too hot, along with a sweater in case your daughter is cold. It may also be a good idea to pack an extra outfit just in case  your daughter needs to change for some reason. As for the gift, since you aren’t a guest, and your child is a minor, I see no reason why you would need to send a gift or card.

I agree with JamaicaBride about the clothes and a gift.  And if the bride doesn’t like what you send your daughter with, she has no right to complain since she refused to give you any guidance.  And no gift is necessary (especially since your ex should be getting the bride and groom a gift).

I also think you ought to put you foot down with your ex.  If it’s his weekend to have your daughter, she is in a wedding for his family, and you already have plans, there is no reason you should have to change those plans to come pick her up.  Why can’t she go to the reception with everyone else and then home with your ex at the end of the night?  Something about his request just seems off to me ….
