    Yes, I would be offended with no gift to my wedding. I woldn’t care if it’s cheap but no gift at all? Yeah just no. And I would not show up to a friend’s wedding without a gift of some kind.

    I think the whole “cover the cost of your plate” thing to be the tackiest the thing, pretty much, ever. The entitlement and complete lack of actual “hosting” involved just speaks of poor manners. The whole: I’m throwing a party for myself & expect my “guests” to pay for it. They’re not really guests if you’re expecting them to pay for their meal. They’re patrons. And if I’m paying $200 for a meal, it had better not be the generic slop served at most weddings. I want a full menu. And the ability to custom order my food (no sauce, extra mushrooms, whatever). I also would choose a place that had great ambiance (so, no cheap decor).

    If someone  invited me to a wedding with the expectation that it was some sort of business transaction, I’d treat it as such. I’d expect a whole lot for my $400 (assuming I bring a date, which I would, of course, because I’m very unlikely to spend  $200 for dinner by myself).
