Depends on what kind of wedding, is it fancy?  I think $100 should be fine 🙂

Have fun!

I totally think $100 is enough! But that’s just me. 🙂 If a couple gave me $100 for a present at our wedding, I would feel more than appreciative!

If that is what you can afford, that is fine. 

What is considered an OK gift changes dramatically between regions and circles of family and friends.

Any gift is wonderful! Seriously. $100 is very generous, regardless of how fancy the wedding is. We got several gifts of $100 from couples for our wedding.

What is okay is what you can afford, feel comfortable with, and want to give. People worry far too much about this issue. Which I understand and am not immune to. But…a gift is a gift. Smile

I think so!

After getting into planning my own wedding and realizing how generous some people can be with wedding gifts, I started feeling guilty about the $40 olive plate I gave a close friend for his wedding a few years back. The subject came up one day, and I was like, “Man, I’m sorry for getting you such a cheap present!” and he was like, “You’re crazy. That’s about how much any of our friends spent.” And that was a fancy NYC wedding. So yes, I think $100 is lovely and generous, and I wouldn’t worry about it at all.

$100 sounds like enough! Do you have a cute card to go with it? Sometimes between good friends, the sentiment means more than the money, especially if the recipient knows the gifter doesn’t have a lot to give.
