    If I wasn’t invited to a wedding than I would only give a congratulations card and a small token gift and I would do it at the time of the wedding. So personally because of the circumstances I wouldn’t do anything for that cousin now. 

    If someone invited me to their wedding and I wanted to give a gift than I would give below my usual gift amount. Normally I give $250-$300 too and I would probably give $100 since it’s a nice round number however, I feel I would be more inclined to decline with an actual gift rather than money and might organise a couples massage voucher or dinner voucher instead depending on the couple

    I think gifts should depend more on your financial situation than on what you were gifted in the past.

    that said, knowing only the info provided and doing a purely mathematical reasoning (I.e. Not considering the true meaning of a gift, etc…) I’d say $100 per couple is plenty.. Neither had to host you as a guest, after all.

    I think $150 per couple would be great because they are your siblings. When I attend weddings, I give $100-200. When I don’t attend, I send $50. However, when it was my sister’s wedding, I gave her $800 and my then boyfriend (now fiancé) gave $300. Depends on how close you are with them.

    misschan :  they’re not her siblings, they’re family friends. They are related to each other
