When giving a gift of money for a present it is completely up to you as to how much to give. Traditionally the money a couple receives from their wedding helps to set up their future life together. There are many things to consider: how close are you to the couple? how much did they give you at your wedding? what would be an appropriate amount to cover your meal expenses and add extra as a gift? I would however never give less than $100 or $200 for a wedding gift.
No one should give more than they can afford for a wedding gift. The general monetary gift could be anywhere from $50 and up. If you are uncomfortable with giving money then buy them a gift.

The rational I have always used when deciding how much to spend on a friends wedding gift is 'How much would I want them to spend on me?' Or 'How much do I think they would spend on me?' Which gives me an approximate figure to work with. For myself it also varies with how close I am to the friend and how well off I am financially at the time. The best indicator to whether or not you have spent enough money is when you give them the gift. If you are happy to give them the gift you have selected you know you have chosen wisely.
No gift is required for a wedding. Attendance or not. But it all depends on what you can afford. If that is $5, then do that if it is nothing and a card with well wishes do that. If it is $1000, can you be relative? Okay so seriously, give what you feel comfortable giving. My mom always gives $100 to her nieces and nephews. She lives in the Midwest and she can afford to give that.
It depends on how well u know the person and what your financial situation is.

As much as you can affored ,if you have the money you must give at the very least $300 to cover you dish and the gift . the wedding party cost about $100 a plate or more depending on size and expense of course , then again if you cannot afford to give alot then don't . do what is in your heart so you can keep her or him as a friend without down the road the will remind you of the cheap person you really are .
Be sure first that the bride and groom have not got wedding registries at different stores and if they have you can go to any of those stores and buy a gift and forget giving money. If the bride and groom to be have requested a monetary wedding gift then anything from $50 up is just fine. Don't break the bank over it.
