@Ryansgirl:  To me, weddings are (obviously) big, usually once in a lifetime events, so if I could afford it, I would gift at least $100.  That’s just me though and I am sure any amount you give will be appreciated!

All that for a co-workers daughter!?  I just plain wouldn’t go, but I usually give $50 for weddings I do attend.

I wish I knew more to comment, but all I know is that cash is the standard gift for an East Indian wedding.

Expect it to be lavish and enjoy yourself though.  I wasn’t able to go to my friend’s wedding and am still disappointed I missed it!

If I was willing to go (which I personally wouldn’t for a co-workers child, but you obviously have a different relationship theN I do with my co-workers), I would still give my standard minimum gift of $100 for just me and $200 if me and Fiance are going. That’s my minimum gift if I don’t know the people very well.

@mchitt329:  Same. : Why on earth would someone invite a person who’s basically a stranger? I have customers I see more than you’ve met this girl. Good lord, we aren’t even inviting the coworkers both Fiance and I worked with for 5+ years.

I feel you on the hotel cost, though. We only have a few here, and none of them are in the most convenient area for our guests. The nicer one that’s two blocks from our reception venue is $229+ a night! We live in a tiny effing town! I suggested three hotels that are more out of the way, but right next to the highway and restaurants because they’re like 1/3 of that.
