Actually, in some cultures, money is the only appropriate gift. If you've been invited to a wedding where either the bride or the groom comes from a different background, you might want to research into whether or not even getting a gift instead of giving money is the tradition. Or, even better, talk to one of the family members or friends of the couple to find out what their preference is. Otherwise, while a heartfelt present is often more remembered than a gift of money, sometimes the bride and groom would prefer it. Either cash or a check enclosed in a wedding card is acceptable, along with a well-wishing, handwritten note. Also, most larger retailers now offer gift cards, if you don't feel comfortable using a personal check or giving cash. Many stores have these available at the checkout counters or online at their website. Another idea, if your desire to give money is based on not wanting to get the couple something they might not want, is to find out whether they have a gift registry at any stores. That way, you know you'll be getting them not only something unique, but something they really need.
Yes, money can be not only appropriate, but for a couple that is just starting out it may be very appreciated. I some cultures, money is the ONLY appropriate gift at a wedding.
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.
