Should I send a gift?

phunkyphreak phunkyphreak
A co worker invited me to her daughter's wedding and I already declined the invitation I am going out of town. Do I still send a gift or is it in poor taste not to. I don't really know the daughter and met her fiance briefly. What do you think?

According to the social etiquette posts I just researched, it says that you don't have to, but if you know the parents of the daughter well, you may consider sending a gift. A gift in the $25 - $50 price range would be appropriate.

I would at least send a card.

I think it would be better to send a gift but it doesn't have to be expensive.

I'd say yes a card, but no gift

You don't have to, it really depends on how close you are to the coworker in this case.

A gift isn't necessary, but a card would be acceptable.

I agree with the others who say yes, but something small, or at very least a card. I would say it also depends on how close you are to the coworker. I wouldn't say you have to, but I think it would be nice.

Like the others have said at least a card.

I would send a card. If you know the co-worker really well and she is very dear to you, then I would send a card and a simple gift.

My mom, on the other hand, would tell you to ALWAYS send a gift.

I agree with Kayla. A small gift would be a nice gesture, but not necessary.

I think a nice card would suffice.

An invitation that is really heart felt is nice, but a gift is ONLY "necessary" or expected if you are going to attend or if it is a CLOSE friend or relative. NO, you do not need to send a gift, but perhaps a nice card would be appropriate.

What is your relationship like with your co worker? If you do not send a small acknowledgement gift will it create problems or rumors in the workplace? I would send a nice card and a simple but inexpensive candle set. Use your points, get a nice decorative candle and call it good.

Good Idea!!! I like my co worker, Deb but I do not relly know her children. My other co worker Molls kids got married and did not invite me which was fine. I also told Deb not to invite me I was going to be out of town. I kinda feel that I do not need to send a gift as I told them not to invite me but I feel bad.

I don't think you HAVE to send a gift but if it makes you feel better you could always send one because you want to!

I would definitely send a card or flowers - something like that.

If you know her daughter and like her, maybe. But if you dont really know her, I wouldnt.

I suppose some think it's rude but I wouldn't send one, I do like the card idea though.

I wouldn't send one. Thats just me tho. If you were attending or knew them well I think you should give one, but since you wont even be there and you dont really know them, they honestly wont really notice or care. I know my husband and I were so excited to be getting married I honestly didn't care who gave one or didn't or who came or didnt unless it was someone we were really close to.

If you don't really know the couple, then I don't think a gift is needed. A card would be a nice gesture though.

Send a card maybe. But you shouldn't feel like you need to send a gift.

I think you should send a card, but I don't think you should buy anything!

Just a card maybe. I don't think they invited you just to get a gift from you.
