I love jatz and kraft french onion dip except when i have it the whole tub disappears yummm
It sounds to me like you may not have been reliably informed about the $ giving? Eg it was something the family just decided they were going to do. Can you ask your friend directly "what do you need from a present aspect" if your friend says nothing you could cover up and say "this is for the wedding Im thinking about."
I think it's rude to ask for presents at an engagement party. I think its rude to ask people to bring food. I mean your just getting engaged its not that big a deal. Other people might give a cr@p if you actually get married, but engagement....pffftttt ...move on.
IMO if they haven't specified presents on the invite, and if you haven't heard directly from them that they are after cash... Then it's Ok to Rock up with a really nice home-made desert. If you could do something to personalize the desert (eg their names, love hearts with their initials) then your desert then doubles as a personal gift.
I did speak directly to them vp and they specified cash
Im not like best friends with them or anything but have known them my whole life and we have alot of mutual friends / our families all know eachother etc so i really dont mind but was just wondering if $30 was too little. I was originally thinking 50 but just wont really have that to spare. Thats why i hate cash gifts!! They wanted money towards their honeymoon i think they said? They dont need any house stuff etc.
They didnt / wouldnt expect anything but was more like " if you would like to give, we would prefer money"
I honestly dont mind but cant afford alot atm is all :-)

$30 is perfctky fine for an engagement party..
Its only an engagement party, not the wedding. $30 is perfectly fine! In fact they should be happy with nothing more than your presence if they are a good friend. I know I sure would be anyway.
$30 is fine. I got a lot of cash gifts for ours ( average $30-50) and tbh anything is appreciated and we had a venue food and alcohol provided (cost us too much) looking back now wish I kept it small or less expensive but had to have one for all the people that would not be coming to the wedding. My husbands whole street!!
The whole thing has just become a joke imo
