We want to send them something, but something useful like food (family of 5!). they live in a really small town and nothing local will deliver. Do you think sending them Giordano's frozen pizzas for a sympathy thought is inappropriate? Around these parts I could send ready made meals but like I said, very small town in IN and nothing like that around there - maybe a sympathy basket from amazon?
Go ahead without them like she told you to! Not a problem.
You need to get everyone in the wedding party a gift. It’s not complicated. Stuff for your wedding isn’t a gift. You didn’t need to give gifts for asking them but the fact that you did doesn’t get you off the hook now.
Neither. If it’s mandatory you pay. If it’s optional they can pay, but it really has to be optional.
Concur with @ILoveBeachMusic's advice. The "rule" is to send invites to whomever you would like to invite to your wedding. Do not take into consideration if you think they could/couldn't make it. That is for them to figure out/decide, even if they are your coworkers.
Only people invited to the wedding can be invited to a shower or wedding luncheon. In a way, I see this as a win-win to invite anyone you would like to attend your wedding. Because then you can also invite them to any wedding related events. In that respect, a person can know that they are probably going to decline the wedding invite...either because they don't want to go to a DW in Ireland or can't get the time off...but can still accept the shower invite.
For example, I personally would be really unlikely to attend a DW in Ireland unless it was my BFF or a close family member. But would definitely accept a local shower invite from a good friend/coworker.
