I always send a gift from the registry when I rsvp no, however I would say maybe 1/2 my “No” RSVPs did this for my wedding.

I wouldn’t expect someone to send a gift just becuase I invited them. If they came to the wedding, I would expect a gift of some kind, and otherwise not.

I don’t know that I have ever gotten a gift for someone when I’ve RSVPed no to their wedding.

I most definitely did not expect anything from anyone whether they came to the wedding or not. Only one guest who RSVP’d no sent us a gift – and I was surprised they even did that because the reason they gave for not coming was they couldn’t afford the airfare.

Only three guests who rsvp’d no sent us gifts and we had about 45 no’s. I always send a gift though.

Judith Martin (Miss Manners) says yes; one should send a gift even if they don’t attend.

But I wonder what would happen if every bride who reads her column sent her an invite?  Tongue out

I wouldn’t send one and wouldn’t expect one either.

I try to send one but I didn’t expect one from people who RSVPed no, from the ~15 individual nos (some are families) we got 3-4 gifts plus gifts from some people we didn’t invite on DH’s side.

I didn’t expect anything other then a response of yes or no and a hope that everyone could attend.  In actuality, we got no gifts from anyone that said no, but we did get a card or 2.
