I would send her a nice gift. Maybe a nice crystal vase or something

I don’t think its weird to send a check. I wouldn’t want to guess someone’s taste if they aren’t registered. I’d go check or gift card.

We send gifts because we want to not because we have to.

I would send a gift in the amount I could afford. In this particular case, I would probably send a cheque or a gift card as I have no idea what they need or want.

I would definitely send a gift/money just as I would have if we did go to the wedding. We are having a small family wedding and are receiving gifts from those not invited already (before announcements) that would be what I would hafe expected from them if they attended a wedding.

But it’s up to you. Like th PP said, we give because we want to.

@cutexkitty: I wouldnt send a cheque. I would opt for a gift, something useful, maybe some lovley wine glasses or champagne flutes? Or if they are beer drinkers some nice beer glasses and a mix of international beers?

It would depend on the person, but typically, if I was not invited to the wedding I wouldn’t feel compelled to send the traditional cash gift I would normally give. If I still wanted to send a token of some kind, I would send a nice card and maybe a gift card to somewhere different/interesting. Like a cool home store in their area, or a new restaurant. Unless you know of something in particular they would want/need.
