Hey everyone. I need advice. I'm going to a wedding in St. Louis, MO in November. Obviously a flying trip for me.
I just got the invite for the wedding shower which I can't attend (it's actually drivable for me but I will be visiting in-laws 1600km in the other direction). I want to send a gift though, is that normal to do? This is her second marriage, she already has three kids and is marrying a man already with kids (three as well I think). They don't need any of the traditional wedding "prepare for married life" stuff. Their wedding registry is one of those ones set up by a travel agency where you can contribute to their honeymoon.
Should I contribute to the registry vacation? Should I get her something for herself? I thought about making something as I do pottery and knitting (maybe a soft warm pretty scarf for winter?)
I probably have to mail it out in the next week though as it will take a few weeks to mail to the USA.
