I can empathize with the no card no gift thing.  I have worked for my current company for 14 years. My boss, his wife and another co-worker and spouse both of whom I have worked with for more than 14 years came to the wedding and didn’t even bring a card.  It has been three weeks since my wedding and I feel the same way.  There was also another co worker who came empty handed. I was raised differently by modest parents who were always generous and taught me that is was a nice gesture to bring a decent gift to a wedding as it shows thoughtfulness.  I know budget is not issue here because both co-workers make well over 100K and one of the spouses is an attorney…to me it shows no class.

I disagree. Do not send a thank you as a way to remind him that he didn’t get a gift. That is much moreriusepp than leaving a wedding early.Maybe they were shy, or had another function.

Gifts are never required. Ever. You will create a very uncomfortable work environment if you say anything about this to him.
