I’ve been invited to a wedding of a long time friend-not a close friend, but more than an acquaintance.
I would love to go and show support for the nuptials, but I can’t afford a gift right now. Should I not go? Or will they not notice that I don’t bring a gift?
How would you handle it?

If they're inviting you to their wedding then they obviously are more enamored with you than you think. I wouldn't invite just anyone to my wedding.
Take what I say with a grain of salt as I don't actually have any experience with this but I would probably be more hurt if someone didn't turn up after I invited them than if they showed up with a gift. Of course, I'm not as shallow as some people so I don't know.
I would probably come and do my best to help the person with anything they needed and perhaps drop an envelope with a card saying explaining that you couldn't afford a gift just this second but as a friend you'll always be there for them. It's up to you if you want to promise a gift in the future or anything.
Hope this helps and that things go well.0
