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.

Distance

 
 

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.

Wedding #?

 
 

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.
