I appreciate the fact that she invited me to her wedding, despite us never being too close.. but I find this horribly tacky. My boyfriend and I are trying to catch up on bills (aren't we all?), but I wanted to get her something nice, rather than practically handing her cash, and I'd rather her not know the exact value on the gift I did decide to get her. It also doesn't help that we have to travel about 2 hours to get there, and stay the night in a hotel, so those are extra expenses as well.
Have any of you even been in a situation such as this? Did you get the gift card anyway, or did you say "screw it" and get them something else? I'm still debating =\
