Wedding Gift Money Amount?

I was invited to the son's wedding of a guy I have played golf with on and off over many years. Long story short, I was not able to attend and I would like to send a card with cash. The question is how much?

Send whatever amount that you want to. I would say it would depend on how well you know the people, and how well to do you are.

If you had gone to the wedding how much would you have been willing to spend on a gift? Send the cash instead. If you have no idea what you may have purchased send them $40 or $50.

My recommendation, especially if you are going to add your "gift" to a card, ask your friend if the kids had a preferred place for gift items to be purchase. I can't think of what it is called when they arrange at a particular store to have a shopping list for an occasion. But where ever it is get them a gift card for that store.

Cash is always an appreciated gift! Since it doesn't sound as if you know the new couple, and are only once-in-awhile golfing buddies with the dad, a gift of $25 seems appropriate.


The fact that you want to send a gift is really nice; a lot of people nowadays don't attend or even respond to functions to which they were invited, nor do they send a gift!
