I think it all depends but I tend to give $100-$150 for Fiance and I when we go to weddings depending on how close we are to the couple.  That is in addition to the shower gift.

Here it averages equivalent $130 as well. This whole topic does seme to exercise everyone here quite a lot, so I’m sure you’ll get lots of opinions!

That said, your friend is suposed to be inviting you because she wants you there, not calculating your income to see what you’ll bring. If you’re stuck for cash, why not get something pretty instead?

Ryansgirl-you are also mc’ing their wedding so I think that is plenty sufficient!

Depending on how close I am to the couple, my Fiance and I give $150-$200.  Back when I was a poor student and single, the most I could afford was $50 for myself.  I’m not judging people on the value of their gift, or even if they give a gift.  I just want them to be able to celebrate with us!

So I know this is ver un PC of me but if it was my wedding I would like my presents to be at least $50.00 lol and no I am NOT expecting people to give me gifts, I am just saying that would be my preference. But it depends on how you know the couple and how much you can afford to give. A nice card with a sweet note would be worth just as much to me as an expensive gift 🙂
