@Selaen:  Find out where they registered at and gift them a gift card?

@Selaen:  In my area (and this really is regional), cash is the preferred/normal gift. I’d do a lower amount if only being invited for the later part of the reception.

cash is the norm in my area as well for a wedding, because they can use it on their honeymoon. gifts are ususally given at the bridal shower.

One of my favorite gifts was a beautiful round heavy crystal platter. I used it a thousand times and I still love it. Very generic but I’ve put everything from carrots to filet on it.

Cash is the best gift! I know it seems impersonal but when a couple’s spending thousands on a wedding celebration, they need it. Like a PP said, I would give a bit less since you’re not eating dinner. Maybe $20 – $25 per person in your group?
