We usually give min ~$100+ depending on how close we are to the couple.

I don't attach it to anything that is happening at the wedding - I would give the same amount if we are going to a BBQ wedding or a 12 course dinner at parliament house :)


We are the same.

Re: Your children at reception

I forgot to mention, that our daughter came home with us that night, as we just went home not to a hotel. Also she came along on our honeymoon, as we weren't quite prepared to leave her with someone for more than a few hours at that stage.
