My 19 yo daughter was invited to a wedding...her first on her own, meaning not a family member or friend's wedding...and it's not one of her peers.
She's invited to the wedding of her best friend's mom...second marriage for the bride and groom..both in their '50s'. The girls have been friends for many years, I've taken the other girl on vacations, etc. So DD and her boyfriend are going. It's super casual, at a park, with a pavilion/DJ reception, etc.
We are wondering what would be an appropriate gift. They've already blended 2 households. Neither one is well to do, they both still work. My husband said $100. I thought that sounded like a lot, from a kid. (if it were my going, I'd of course give $100, maybe 2)
I thought maybe a gift cert. to a favorite restaurant. What do you all think?
( I thought it was a lot, because if I was getting married and one of the kids gave me that much, I'd feel, well, awkward)
