I’d give $100 Because $50 pp is my minimum wedding gift. About the price of a Dinner at a decent restaurant and a movie here. But I also decline all the weddings of people I don’t really know, so this question would be semi-irrelevant in my case.

$75 for one person or $100 for two at the least. You give a $30-$50 gift at the bridal shower not the wedding.

I think 150 for both is good esp since you are not that close. If you are closer than 200.

I’d give at the minimum 100.00 but more likely 150-200 if I’m going with a guest like you stated.

I am apparently cheap because for a coworker I barely know I would give like $50.

Upstate varies – I am north of Albany, and would give $50 to $75.

I would give at least $100.

I’d say $50 per person (so $100 total) if you aren’t that close. If you are both very close to the bride and groom, $100 each ($200 total).
I live in northern CT and gas is about $3.80 here. The norm for wedding gifts is at least $50 per person.

I would either give cash of $100 or buy something off the registry for $50-$75

I’d do $150 for the both of you.

I would give a check for $125, if that was affordable. I’d give a little more if it was someone I’d known longer.
If $100+ wasn’t affordable, I’d look for a really beautiful gift on clearance (so WORTH $100+, but you pay less for it), and I’d have it wrapped and shipped to the couple, not take it to the wedding.

I think 30-50 is too low especially for two people. no disrespect or anything but I would be embarrassed to give that little.
I say at least $100 but i would prob go with 150-200. Maybe Asian cultures are different but anything under 100 is frowned upon. And keep in mind there’s two of you.
