So as I have mentioned I am not mormon. I did some googling but I'm a bit confused as to what to give for a gift- monetary wise.
We are flying out to CA for a mormon wedding- there is an out of town dinner we are invited to on Friday nigt- which is mostly because its the first time in years the family is together- its not really wedding related.
I can't go to the wedding at the temple onSaturday and then we were invited to come to someones house from 5-7 pm that night.
I'm not sure what happens at the house- I guess its a reception. I don't know if there is food, but I assume there is becuase its dinner time.
What kind of a gift are they expecting? It is my fiances cousin.
Typically I judge wedding gifts per the cost of a plate. So for example, if I got to a really fancy wedding I give about $250 as a gift. If I go to a less fancy wedding, I usually give about $150 per couple. I tend also vary the gift based on our relationship. For example I gave my cousin $150 but I also bought her a place setting for $150.00. If its a friend I havent seen in years, or something, I give less.
But from what I am reading online- a gift of about $25 is seen as "typical"
I have no idea what to give for a gift. Since its Fiances cousin I assumed $300 but $25-300 is a big difference. Also, I'm from NEw England where thins are a LOT more expensive than Utah (where they live) they are also students.
I checked her registry but honetly, the items are either like $15 or $500! Plus, there is no address to send the gifts too online-and it wouldbe too expensive to send it from here/annoying to lug a gift on a plane.
HELP! this is sooo confusing.
