Cover Your Plate
Rule of thumb is that you cover your plate. It’s 2015 and the average cost of a plate at weddings now is $65. Is that too much per person? Too little? If you’re going to a wedding that has a buffet, you still may want to give them a little more.
Unless the bride and groom are chipping in for your plane and hotel to their destination wedding, you could consider stuffing the card a little lighter. Or, perhaps, you could get something less-expensive off of their registry.
If your best pal is getting married for the third time, it is totally acceptable to give him less than you normally would. After all, this is not his birthday.
