Edit: Haha! Thanks for all the comments. I agree with all of you!!! 🙂
I wish I could link back to an old post I wrote about having to pay a bill at a baby shower, and being charged for participating in a kids birthday party. I feel like this falls into that category a bit.
A family member is getting married soon. We were not invited. Most of my family was invited, but apparently the relative getting married has opted for a smaller wedding, and cut some of us out. Which is fine, because I don’t plan on traveling to anymore family events after our October trip!
My question is – are we suppose to get them a gift? We are not close. Never have been. This is a first cousin. I had no intention of gifting them anything. Not to be rude, but because it never crossed my mind. And then…the bride sent me an email with a link to their gift registry and said “Thanks so much for your generosity, here’s what we’d like!”
Googling is a mixed bag of results for this situation. And frankly, I found the email to be tacky, which makes me lean heavily towards no gift, but maybe a congratulations card?
