Some clear answers and accurate amounts of no, it depends on many factors, such as where the couple are just friends they you or relatives and if the relatives, how are you close to them. First, however, the amount of the gift is determined on the basis of financial capability of the giver.
If the couple live in a small village or a small town, one thousand rubles may seem a decent amount, but for the residents of regional cities such a gift may be very modest.
In Russian cities from one person is normal to give about two or three thousand, and from a pair of 4-6 thousand rubles.
As the price level in major cities such as Moscow and St. Petersburg is different, it would be nice to raise the bar of 5-15 thousand rubles and more. In Ukraine usually give 1-2 thousand hryvnia, you can give 500, if the relative is not very close. In small towns often give the minimum amount — 100 UAH.
The minimum amount you can give colleagues, classmates, distant relatives and neighbors.
Knowing approximately how much it will cost the wedding party, and multiplying it by half, you can calculate the minimum cash gift. Of course, everyone has different costs for the wedding: one can rent a boat or a house outside the city, while others celebrate the day of family in a cheap and cozy café or even at home.
The wedding of relatives
The wedding of his beloved niece, who grew up in front of your eyes is not a reason to save, the minimum amount you can give to nephew, if you've seen him a few times in my life. Brother, sister or possibly you can give 10-15 thousand rubles, and children and grandchildren — all that has been accumulated for this significant event.
A gift from the parents, one of the unspoken rules, must be much greater than the amount invested the most generous a guest as a gift. The cousin who recently became a mother, is unlikely to be able to allocate from the family budget more than three thousand, but a solid uncle is able to give your favorite nephew even 50 thousand rubles, allowing himself a Grand gesture.
In the case of severe financial difficulties, on the amount of the gift don't even worry, knowing that the person is not currently able to afford to give a large sum of money, it is unlikely someone will judge. It is possible to cheat a little to a stranger after the wedding to remain "on beans", and take the most amount you can give and see how many other guests will give, you probably will not have to give all the money.
