Should I bring a gift?

A high school friend of mine (whom I see once or twice a year) got married last month. It was a small wedding and I wasn't invited. They are having a party/bbq to celebrate their marriage this weekend. It's a 2nd marriage for both and they already have a house with everything.
My question is should I bring a gift? And if so, what do you think would be appropriate? They are not registered anywhere.

I think a plant, or flowers, as PP said,would be a nice gesture.

A bottle of their favorite liquor or wine always works. If they don't drink, maybe a house plant?

A gift card to a popular store is always good: Target, etc.

Hostess gift

I would take whatever you would take to any hostess who had invited you to dinner. Flowers, a bottle of wine, chocolate.

Thank you, I think a bottle of wine would work, but I know nothing about wine. How much does a good bottle cost?
