Do i need to send a wedding gift?

We have a friend of a friend(who btw are no longer friends). This friend and her fiance we have seen on three social occasions through out the last 3 years. The friend is nice and we get along. We did a weight loss class for a few months last winter. We dont see each other much at all. Ok we got invited to bridal shower(jack n jill) last month but could not go. we were invited to wedding reception next weekend but i declined. Do i need to send a gift? We do not know any of the same people only know the firend who we met through but they are not friends. I am torn. My husband thinks we are not obligated. What are your thoughts? Thanks

  • Under these circumstances..I don't think you are obligated..in fact..it feels a little like gouging for gifts. Who invites people they barely know, either of you, to their wedding.

  • I don't think you are obligated. If anything, a nice card would do.
