- Wedding: September 2011
A close friend called me yesterday to tell me she is getting married on Tuesday. Her and her boyfriend were not engaged, but her father became suddenly ill. They don’t know how much time he has left. He was going to miss walking her down the aisle. So they decided to get married in a few days. This is going to be a simple backyard wedding with immediate family and friends. They plan on doing the big reception with bells and whistles in a year or so. It’s pretty customary here to give a monetary gift at a reception to cover your meal, drinks and extra. I am just wondering what would be an appropriate gift for the “1st Wedding”. Should I still give money or a gift…any gift suggestions would also be appreciated.
