    I’m as non-Asian/Mediterranean as they come (well, a splash of Italian) and I give money at about half the weddings I go to.

    I always give money, and I’m half Canadian/half Polish, so no Asian or Mediteranean in me!

    I usually give $100 as a gift… less than I want but I’m usually flying to the wedding, getting a room, rental car, etc so something has to give.

    We do usually gift money instead of getting a gift. The amount we give depends on who’s wedding it is, but it’s always more than $100. We’re Canadian, our families are Czech.

    I’m a European mutt and I give cash. It’s easier for me and usually what the couple would prefer.

    I’m irish and I usually give 50-100 depending on if i have a date or who the person getting married is.  I’m usually running around last minute to get to the ATM never mind hit the mall for a present.

    I always give out money.  I only do money + gift for family member. The amount will depend on if I need to fly out, hotel, car rental and all traveling cost.  If I am flying out, then they will get less as I probably shell out hundreds of dollars more for the trip to attend the wedding.  My presence should be enough, right? 🙂

    All the weddings I have been to were paid by the couple.  So I want to help out my friends as much as I can.  Plus so many people own a house prior to wedding already.  They don’t need any more house gifts. So for me it make sense to just give out money.

    I haven’t in the past, but I will from now on – 50-100, maybe a bit more for family or if I land a much more comfortable job.

    I was give money as a gift. I prefer to let the couple decide to use the money for what they really need. I prefer to not to go to the store or order online a gift when I can write a check or give a gift card.

    I’m a European mutt (as Aure so elegently put it) and I never give money at weddings.

    I always purcahse I gift off of the couple’s wedding registry.  Cash is just too impersonal, IMO.
