Shanghai Wedding Etiquette?

I am visiting China for the first time to see my daughter who teaches English in Shanghai. She and her Chinese boyfriend said they are taking me to a wedding for a friend or relative of the boyfriend's mother during my visit. I am reluctant to attend because I do not know these people, I was not invited, I have no gifts to bring and I am bringing only very casual clothes in a carry-on bag. They say no worries since it is China and people do not follow the same rules of etiquette that may exist in the West. I am afraid my daughter will be offended if I decline her efforts to allow me to observe an authentic Chinese wedding. She seriously wants me to broaden my horizons. What should I do?
