Do I give a wedding gift if I’m only invited to the wine and cake reception and not the wedding ceremony?

QuestionI’ve been invited to a wedding reception but not the wedding ceremony. It is a wine and cake reception so am I supposed to bring a wedding gift?

AnswerWedding gifts are always optional for the wedding guest. Although you have not been invited to the ceremony portion of the wedding, a wedding gift would be well appreciated by the bride and groom. Your relationship with the bride and groom and how well you know them, your creativity and imagination, along with what is financially reasonable for you, will help to determine what that wedding gift will be.
