Dearest lovely bees,
You girls have been so helpful in the past, so I would totally appreciate any input on this one..!
How much should I give to my friend who’s getting married next week? Here are some details to consider:
– I’m one of her 8 bridesmaids for a large 600+ guest 3-day Indian wedding in N. Carolina
– My Fiance and I would be driving down to the Carolinas from NJ for this wedding
– I’ve known her for 1 year
– The bride and her hubby-to-be also paid for our lodging for 3 nights!
Any input is greatly appreciated, as always!! Thanks :o)

Give whatever you can afford! I typically give around $50-100, depending on how far I have to travel. The details do not matter, give what you can comfortably give. And if your friends don’t think it is enough, then they suck.

@ssttpp: My fiance and I always give $100 each ($200 total)…$150 ($300 total) for close family. No matter the cost of the wedding.

I just got married. Most of our checks were an even $100.

SO and I Currently have at least five weddings to attend in 2014. I think $100 per couple is very doable. Do you guys tend to give a gift and money? Or just money? Or an item off their wedding registry?
