Wedding shower question

I was invited to a bridal shower for a friend that I am unable to attend. 

Should I still send a gift?  It appears that there are varying opinions on this.  What is your experience?

Re: Wedding shower question

  • If it is a good friend, send a gift.  If not, just do a wedding gift.
  • I was invited to a friend's shower, and I sent a card and gift card, but then got a few things off of her registry list (rather than just getting one) for her wedding.

  • If you are unable to go, you shouldn't feel obligated to give a gift. If you want to, go ahead, but it isn't something you should be pressured to do. One of my BMs didn't come to any of my pre-wedding parties and didn't give me gifts, and that was ok.

    I am not going to be able to attend an upcoming shower, either. I plan on getting the couple a nicer gift for their wedding with the money I'd have spent on the shower.
