IT’S WEDDING SEASON and don’t our bank balances know it. (Er, and congratulations to all.)

Sometimes, no matter how much you love the couple, circumstances conspire to make you RSVP ‘Can’t attend’ to a wedding invitation.

Assuming you were invited to the full wedding, and can’t go, do you still feel obliged to send a present?

Poll Results:

Only if you are very close to the couple (7101)
Yes, but to a lesser value than if you attended (5706)
Absolutely not (1869)
Yes, you should send a big present no matter what (787)
