I have a question. A few months ago I got an email from a friend in Florida about hotel information for her wedding*, which was going to be Thanksgiving weekend. I never did anything about it because I was waiting for the invitation to come in the mail and it never did. She never asked if I got the invite, so I assume one was never sent.

She is a friend of mine from college, but we've lost touch over the past few years. We would send occasional emails, but most of the contact in the last year or two has consisted of being sent a link to photos of her daughter* and exchanging Christmas cards.

Am I obligated to buy a wedding gift?


*The short story: it's her second marriage, and she's marring the father of her baby. Not that this matters, I guess.

No. If you weren't invited there is no obligation to buy them anything. If you feel awkward not doing anything, just send her a congratulations card.

If you didn't go to the wedding and you aren't that close, I would say she gets nothing, esp considering the circumstances of her getting married for a second time.

She was just fishing for a gift... F her.

Oh... and you should jump for joy that you never got an invitation. How big of a pain-in-the-ass and waste of money are those friggin' weddings?

You buy people wedding gifts to make amends for the embarrassing things you're going to do after you partake in their open bar.

If you're not present to hump the ice sculpture because "You're woman parts are on fire" then the present should reflect the invite. She sent you an email, send her a congratulatory eCard, and tell the whore to get on the pill.

Absolutely not. No invite no gift. If you got the invite and couldn't go, that'd be a different story.

it kind of irks me when people have a big old wedding if it's their second time around....so i wouldn't give them shit, but that's just my opinion on it and that's teh only reason i wouldn't send a gift. it really is difficult to invite everyone, i'm helping my friend plan her wedding right now and it's nearly impossible to invite half the people you'd like to

My wife and I had a somewhat big wedding and it was her 2nd time. But, she really didn't have much of a wedding to speak of the first time from what I understand. As far as the original topic goes, I agree that it sounds like the "friend" was fishing for a gift.

Not at all. And it is the correct thing to do. Continue on your course, sparce contact and it will be fine. And, next time we meet up, we spend what you were gonna send! Wooooooooooo!
