Wedding day...

Today my wife and I will be attending a co-workers wedding and reception. It'll be one of three we will be going to in the next several months. And two of them we'll actually be participating in! Needless to say the frugal angel on my shoulder is wondering how much this is going to cost. We typically give about $200 bucks from the both of us. That's normally the approximate cost of a plate nowa days. And in my friends case, his future in laws will be paying for it, so that's 100% profit. How much do you typically give at weddings?

I don't attend many weddings, but from ours this summer I can say that most people gave either $50 or $100. This was regardless of wether it was from a couple or an individual. $200 is indeed generous, in my opinion, and I would have felt a little awkward having received such a high amount.

We usually give around what we think the plate cost... typically about $75 each. Maybe more depending on how close the friends/family are.
