Wouldn’t even occur to me.

Nope.  I don’t give a gift for the purpose of covering my plate.  I give a gift because I care about the couple and I want to give them a gift to celebrate their union.

I’ve never heard of this. Never even occurred to me. But, I never give a gift to cover my plate. I give it based on relationship acan what I can afford. I’d give the game gift even if I couldn’t attend

No it doesn’t make any difference to me.

I always give the same amount at weddings regardless if it’s a weekend, weekday, casual or formal.

Wow!  That is sad.  I give a gift based on my relationship to the couple.  If it is at a time that is really inconvenient (trying to get off work, super long drive, etc) then I send my regrets and a nice gift.  An invitation isn’t a summons – if you can’t make it work don’t go but giving a cheaper gift because the wedding is inconvenient or not on a Saturday is crazy.

That’s crazy – I’ve never heard of such a thing. I’m having a semi-destination wedding and it’s on a Friday. That being said – I’m not saving any $ for it being on a Friday; we chose the day because it’s easier when it comes to rental home turnovers.

I give $ based on my financial situation at the moment and how close I am to the couple.
