I have been invited to an interstate wedding and am very excited to go. It is going to cost me almost $300 in flights and $260 in accomodation in addition to hire car. The wedding has a wishing well style gift request.
How much do you think would be appropriate to give? It is just me - DH and dd are staying home.

What ever you can afford. Someone told me that you should spend roughly what the per head price would be. Because of your expenses I'm sure they would understand if you didn't give heaps.

If I was the bride I would say that your presence is presents enough. If you can only swing $50 or whatever, I think that is A-ok.

Depends on how close you are to the person/couple? Depends on what you can afford, for me it would be max $100 combined with all of the other expenses you've mentioned.

I would say no more than $100.
You've spent a small fortune to attend, you should not feel obligated to throw wads of cash into the well!

I'm getting married in August and most of my guests will have to pay for accommodation etc.
We do not expect and definitely won't be asking for gifts of any kind.
I just want people to come and celebrate with us not have to stress about money!
