    I wouldn’t be offended at all. How sweet and thoughtful of you to want to get your best friend and her new husband (to be) something special! If she’s aware of your plans, I’m sure she’ll understand and will probably be touched. 🙂

    I would not be offended at all! Maybe give them a card on their wedding day, expressing your love for them and your plans. But regardless, a more thoughtful gift (even if belated) is wonderful!!

    I think technically you’ve actually got a year after the wedding to send gifts? I’m not positive on that though.

    I think that’s a lovely idea and I would in no way be offended.  In fact I’m sure they’ll be very pleased and touched that you are going to the effort of finding something unique and meaningful to give to them.  (I agree it’s a good idea to let the bride know that is what you’re doing though, just to avoid any misunderstanding.)

    @JMPacker:  Heck no!  I love presents, whenever and wherever!  I would think it very thoughtful of you 🙂

    I think the great book of wedding rules says you have a year – however, a nice card on the wedding day would probably be appreciated, and you could let them know in the card that you plan on finding them something during your travels.  Just make sure you follow through!

    besides it’s always nice to get a little something after the mad rush of gifts and rush of getting out thank you notes.  It’s like a little extra way to prolong the special time. 😀

    A late present is better than no present. And a thoughtful present is better than an expensive one.

    Heck no I wouldn’t be offended, just give a card at the wedding and if you’re worried just explain to the bride what you told us!!

    Nope. But I don’t expect presents or gifts, so it would be a surprise to me, truthfully. I wouldn’t be angry in the slightest.
