I am going to a wedding in July and I am on a budget. The wedding requires me to fly across country, get a rental car, and a hotel room. Add in the cost of the tux and the two gifts I've already gifted the new couple, and I'm out at least $1k before my date and I walk in the door.
What's proper etiquette for the big gift? Is it the same for a couple as for an individual? Is it 2x what an individual should spend?
I don't mean to be a cheapskate, but I am trying to not break my bank in a single weekend.
Thanks for your help, BW World!
