What is the proper amount to spend on a wedding gift?

The bride and groom are close friends, not relatives.

There is no proper amount; it's all relative to your own and the bride and groom's economic situation. Generally, it's quite a bit more than you'd spend on a birthday.

Also it doesn't really matter if they're relatives or not; it's the closeness that counts.  add a comment

I would have to say at least $100.00 since they are close friends. I wouldn't go any less, after all I wouldn't want a cheap wedding gift.

It seems that since many of the brides and grooms are paying for their weddings without help from parents, a gift in the amount of $200 should cover the amount of the dinner. You need to take into consideration how close you are to the couple and their parents, as this might cause you to give more.

Your most valuable gift is the fact you are attending their wedding! But I would spend about $50 to $100 on a gift if they are close friends.

If its a relative or close friend $500.00 if you are not attending if you are attending $1,000.00 per family
