I think its enough! It sounds like she understands that money is tight and that you being there is what is important to her. I wouldn’t be worried.

@jennygrl070:  I think its enough because you gave gifts at the shower and you are spending money to be at her DW. 

Don’t be yourself up about it. She should be grateful for whatever she gets being that its a DW.

It’s plenty. You will hear stories of people giving way more than that, but if it’s what you want to give, and it’s what you can afford, then it is enough. Any gift is enough.

That’s more than enough, thats my upper limit for when I don’t go to the shower too, let alone both things.  Remember, she’s not in it for the money!

if $100 is what you can afford, it is the perfect amount.

Absolutely–you’ve already spent much more than that on her, with your multiple gifts.

$100 seems like more than enough to me.  A gift should be what you’re comfortable giving, and it sounds like you’re already gone above and beyond just giving a cash gift for the wedding. 

A gift is a gift, and should not come with an expected amount.

I think that is plenty. She will appreciate the homemade gifts so much more then money.

I think it’s more than plenty.  That’s our standard gift (or it was, it may go up now that our financial position is better…our household income has almost doubled in the last year).  She knows you have money problems, I think $100 is very generous with a hearfelt card.  It sounds like you’ve gone above and beyond already.  It sounds like your attendance at the wedding is really what’s important to her.

absolutely — she made it clear that she wanted you there no matter what! the money isn’t important at all…. all the amazing gifts you have given (plus the heartfelt card) mean a heck of a lot more than a wad of cash stuck in a card
