Must MOH attend out-of-town shower?
As matron of honor, must I attend the shower if it is out-of-town, as I can't afford the airfare. Should I send a gift. The bride said she would understand if I could not.

This is not a problem, because when the shower is hosted out-of-town, it is not necessary to attend. A gift isn't even necessary if not attending. But, you might want to give a group gift with other attendants if there are others. The gift doesn't have to be nearly as expensive as a wedding gift.
