@krstino1012:  I would give only one wedding gift, even though you are going to both ceremonies. But you were the one who decided you could afford to go to both ceremonies, so I don’t think it is fair to count the $1,200 travel expenses as part of her “gift” in your budget. I would gift her the same as you have any of your other friends who were getting married locally.

@krstino1012:  I would only give a gift at one of the ceremonies.  The $100 and a picture frame sounds more than generous!

I’d give only one gift, and if the travel expenses dictated that it were a less generous gift than usual, so be it.  Bring a card to whichever event you don’t bring the gift to.

I think your gift is generous. Even though she’s having two celebrations, it’s still only one marriage.

I think your gift sounds good. I’m sure she’ll just be happy that you can make it to the CA celebration.
