Or snowmobiling if it's in the winter. I concur!

about 10 if it is my family because they have a habit of doing this about once every two years. Friends? about 100 unless they owe me money

Good thinking! I hate weddings...especially on a nice summer day!

I go anywhere from $200 - $300, unless of course they are one of those jack-ass couples who choose Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day Weekends. Then I adjust depending on how the weather is.

You wouldn't believe some of the cheap skates at my wedding... SOmebody thought a $9.00 iron was a good enough gift.... wasn't even worth the invite to have them come.

I usually give 100.00 per person attending.

I just got married last month and had two people attend who gave NOTHING. They got prime rib and all they could drink for 4 hours !!! Guess ya know who you're friends really are.
