How Much Money to Give in Weddings

How Much Money Do You Give a Newlywed Couple?

Although there are many who think cold, hard cash is a very impersonal wedding gift, you have to admit that it's pretty practical — you know the couple will use it. I'm always discussing with friends what the right amount is to give for a wedding, and the most common answer is around $100.

However, that number can jump around a bit, depending on your connection with the bride and groom. According to The Knot, you should spend around $50 to $75 for a colleague or distant friend or relative. If you know the couple a little better, that range hops up to $75 to $100. And if you're super close with the duo getting hitched — like, best friends close — you should consider forking over $100 to $150.

Obviously, your current financial condition plays a factor, and The Knot encourages you to think about what's appropriate for the city you live in (if you're all based in inner-city Sydney, for example, you may spend more than a small town). When it comes down to it, rely on your social instinct, or ask someone equally as close to the bride and groom for advice. No matter what, any amount of cash is appreciated by the pair getting hitched! (And for the lovebirds who already have it all, check out this list.)
