How much money do you put in a wedding card??

Postby joker » Tue Apr 07, 2009 10:29 pm

ok girls, honest answers please.

If the wedding is of a close friend/family member how much money is 'acceptable'???
if its an evening invitation, how much do you put in?

I thought, you cover your meal and a few pound extra so for most venues, that would be 200 euro in a card for a couple??
For an evening invitation, 100 euro?

i was told today at work, this was scabby... i though it was generous

i have 6 weddings this year... *)

Hi evey2010,
We are the same as you. 7 weddings this year and then our own.
We put €200 into the card if we are going to the whole day/not going at all.
H2B says he would give €150 if only going to the evening part. I would have been the same as you-€100. I dont know now.
I didnt think this was being scabby.

HI evey

I don't think thats at all scabby, we would usually give €200/€250 depending how close we are to the couple, €500 for a sibling and tbh when we're invited to an evening I usually just buy the couple a gift for around €50 *)

maybe i would give more for a relative but i think that's generous for a friend - especially given people being out of work, budget etc

I dont think your being scabby at all, for a close friend i'd agree 200.00 is plenty but for family member depending on how close you are maybe abit more. For evening I've always bought a gift instead of giving money

We have 3 and our own, I intend on putting 200 for my cousin and one of my best friends and 150 for my h2bs cousin, he barely knows her. We dont have the cash and I think 150 is enough considering the current economic situation. Last year I would have said it was cheap to put 150 in a card but not now... :wv :wv

sibling or close family would be more which is fair enough...sweet08... i can be your sister if you want :o0 :o0
but glad to think we are all on the same wave length. I know i'm gettin married next year but i've never thought before i was engaged how much a wedding cost really for the bride and groom and for the guests... now with this r its seems everything is so much more expensive... and i've never been a scabby person... but part of me wishes the invites would stop coming so i could save money... i know thats mean and bad as i'll want folk at my wedding.. double standards, i hate this recession...
