I have a sibling who is getting married in a couple of months, overseas, and I will not be attending the wedding. Im thinking of giving them cash as it is the most practical and all of their registry items are abviously in the country where they live. But struggling with how much to give! We are not very close, but I dont want to give a measly amount. How much would you spend on a gift for a siblings wedding and why?? They invited both myself and my husband. Even though we have two young children there was never any mention of them so Im guessing they were not invited.

I would give $400/500. Depends on your financial situation.

Holy shit, I wanna be your sister.
I was going to say $50, bc we have a baby and a house we’re saving for but now I feel like a cheap scumbag. Lol

I’m pretty close with my sibling so if I have two kids and a hubby I’ll give around $1000.
But if it is not a close sibling like my hubby’s side I’d give 100$ each so around $400 too.
However again like how your financial part it can be lesser too.

I gave my brother $1000.00
But if you are not that close I would say $400-500

i live in NYC area so you want to give enough to cover the $$ of your plates plus a little extra which is like $300…so giving a sibling $500 is not that amazing.

In my opinion, this really depends on your financial situation. I gave my sister $50 from me and my SO and in her thank you she was like, “You did NOT have to give us anything, you are a student!!” She was very appreciative of the $50. My other sister (also a student) did not give her a gift, that I know of. That said, I just don’t see myself expecting even $100 gifts from any of my guests, much less $400-500 and upwards. I found this in an @anonymombuzz
“Coworker and/or a distant family friend or relative: $50-$75
Relative or friend: $75-$100
Close relative or close friend: $100-$150
I can’t tell you the science behind it, but that’s what is recommended lol.

I suddenly feel very poor and/or a terrible sibling.

What is their financial status? What is your financial status? A $100 wedding gift could be small or large depending on who they/you are.

I received $500 from my sister when I got married last month. However, I would NOT be able to gift that to anyone at this point in my life. She and her husband both have great jobs and while I am sure they had to budget around this gft, they were able to afford this much or they would not have done it.
I would give $50-$100 because that is generous for my financial situation. It all depends on what you can do, like other pps have said. Send what you can financially.
