It is always correct to send the gift ahead....and thoughtful. (Not that you are incorrect of rude to bring it.) When gifts are sent ahead, no one has to worry about lugging them home for the bride and groom (who are leaving on their honeymoon) or cards getting lost, or gifts up and walking away (with a bit of help).

I must admit that I have never sent the gift ahead of the wedding... :shuffle:

I always give money, so I don't either.

In Denmark I have never seen anyone bring money for a wedding.
Weddings in Israel tend to be big - I think the smallest one I've been to had over 200 guests and I've heard 350 is the average - so I'm not sure it would be manageable to have everyone buy gifts. Also the money helps offset the cost of these weddings, which is considerable.
