My hubby and I had a wedding last year. The gift we got were mostly cash, which came in handy and we made a chart for it to remember for upcoming weddings.
Here is my question,
1) Couple gave us just about enough to our wedding cost. (I have to say our wedding did cost a lot, so they were on the generous side). However, we can't attend their wedding due to changes in our career, requiring us to be away. In this case, do we still give the same amount of $$ to them even though we are not attending the reception? Or a little less since we are not eating any food.?
2) Another couple that requires us to fly 4hrs. They did not attend ours, due to their work policy, and only gave us a registery gift through online. Does it look bad if I don't attend theirs, and only send them a gift similar value? The tickets are $500 pp and plus accommodation will cost us more than 1500 to attend + gift.
