I was invited to a co-workers wedding and the day of the wedding I was not able to go w/my guest. I did give her a $150 gift becuase I know that she had to pay for us. (I also gave her a microwave)
For my wedding, she was not able to bring her husband so she asked if she could bring a guest. She brought a co-worker. On her card she wrote "from Jessica" on the outside of the envelope. Inside the card she did not write anything! I thought that was very strange.
I found out after my wedding that the customary gift where I currently live is $50.00 no matter what venue. Unlike where I am from-NYC where its usually $100 a person.
When someone brings a guest isn't it customary that the person bringing the guest pays the guest's part of the gift?
I was surprised becuase we gave her $150 and she gave us $30 for two people and then didnt even write anything in the card.
Another couple did not give a card/gift. This does not seem like them. Do we say anything or let it go
