$150? Maybe $200 if you can spend that?

I would buy something off their registry.  I typically spend between 30-50$.

@figgnewton:  Wow! That’s a LOT for someone the OP barely knows!

I’d probably spend $50-75. Probably a check or gift card to where there registry was.

The only piece of information that I would need to decide, isn’t listed…how close are you to the bride and groom?

I think I’d buy at least a $50 gift.  If they have a registry you can use it.  I’m not sure how close you are to him….so I think $50 is a safe bet.  I probably wouldn’t spend over $100 if I didn’t know him all that well.

@MLDoddie:  +1  I’m in your camp.

The only person I’ve spent over $100 for a wedding present was my sister.  Good friends usually get about a $75 from me, and acquaintances are usually in the $30-$50 range.’

But, to each their own, and standards vary regionally within the US and throughout the world!

I’d give at least $150 for both you & Fiance, probably closer to $200.  NY area is expensive, even upstate =T

And I’d stick with cash or check.

I’d say $50-$75, since it doesn’t sound like you are that close.

For 2 people attending, I’d give at least $100.  I would only buy something off of the registry if there is a china set that needs completing, and you can get a place setting or something like that.  For reference, I live on LI and went to school upstate and have been to weddings upstate.

I would spend probably $75… but thinking now to how much my coworkers spent on me… it was much less than that
