I would send the gift now as they are setting up their married life now.

I have one brother who married out of the country and then three months later had a reception in the US for the relatives who were unable to make it. I know that most sent the gift at the time of the wedding but there were some who brought items to the US reception. I do not think it really matters.

To me, the most important thing is to celebrate the real wedding.  I would send the gift now.

Send the gift...they may not be able to have a larger celebration next year.

When faced with this in the summer, I opted to send the gift now.  Sort of hoped it would also make the lack of a real celebration less hard.
