    Isn't it based on whether or not you receive an invite to the affair?

    We're invited, but probably won't be able to go. It is in California and we have 4 dogs. Usually most of our friends come to Las Vegas. Still don't want to be cheap. The parents are good friends.

    $100-$250 would be the spending spectrum, I would think.

    Anything more or less might be considered "off" by the family.

    If the parents are good friends, I'd give them 200, if you can afford it.

    Agreed assuming you're not attending and you can swing it, more if you're well off and people know it. $100 would be absolute min if not going.

    That's what I was going to ask. $100 is more than enough or something of equal value offf the registry.

    These days, I rather get a parking ticket than a wedding invitation.

    Thanks everybody. We were in the ball park and will probably go with $200 whether we go or not.

    Fuck weddings. Yeah, I'm choosing to spend a ton of money on a stupid one-day party, so if I send you a postcard that says, "You're invited!" you better send me $100-200. You owe it to me! It's my special day!

    God damn I hate weddings. And if it's a close friend who is getting married for the 3rd time, I still have to spend money on tux rental, hotel room, travel, ect? Go fuck yourself.

    I really love when friends get married in Las Vegas - always a fun time, but I see your point.
