Exactly how much money to give as a wedding gift: Here are 11 factors to help you decide

In short, there's no exact go-to dollar amount when you're giving money as a wedding gift. (Sorry.) But there are a bunch of factors that can help you decide. Here are the 11 that matter, in our book.

The old rule of thumb used to be "You give enough to cover your food and drink." But we take issue with that for two reasons: (1) You shouldn't know how much the bride are spending per guest. If you do, there have been some serious breeches of etiquette. And (2) the amount you can afford shouldn't fluctuate based on when they can afford.

PS: If you're giving money, opt for a check over cash in case your card gets—Yikes!—lost or stolen.
