Leonard's of Great Neck

Invited to another wedding
Saturday night next month, she is a friend from law school. Really surprised I got invited, and I do think I was on the B list, because I did not get a 'save the date' especially since I know one other person that did. I dont mind, and I'd like to go with hubby. I wasnt invited to the shower either.
She has a registry at BedBathBeyond.

My question is are you supposed to give gifts from the registry only for bridal showers?
Can I buy two things off the registry and send them to her place, and just give a card on the wedding?
Or do you think I should give cash (is that more appropriate), if so, how much for two?
I will be seeing this person often next semester! but at the same time, weddings are becoming expensive

Thanks

Personally, I'd give cash. It's not wrong to give a physical gift at a wedding, but I wouldn't.

As for how much, always only give what you can afford, no matter what it is.

Where is the wedding? You said it's Saturday night? I'd probably give $150- $200 depending on how much I had to give and because it sounds like you are not very close with the bride.

I would also give cash as a gift. Just got married and every guest gave cash. I have never given less than $300 as a gift, but alot of guests at my wedding gave $100 per person/$200 per couple. Younger guests gave more. Give the amount that you feel comfortable with and can afford.

Definitely cash! It was annoying to have to carry my own stuff from the wedding plus the gifts.
