^I do that for myself without a date. I've been to a wedding where the per person rate was $250 for food..so I'd say just try to cover the expenses for both people..

Same ! I gave $100 for a wedding where I was a bridesmaid. I'm 23 though

My friend is getting married at the same venue next year and the wedding plate cost is $110 so I guess I'll do $200-$250 for 2 of us. Seems awkward to be like here is $220 haha

OP just round up :) $250 is great.

Cost of the plate per person??? How did someone else's catering preferences become a guest's financial burden? I have extravagant friends... I won't be chasing that minimum and just buy off the registry!

I always give between $200-$350

If it's a long trip. $150. If it's local $200-$250. If it's a very very good friend (potential best man material) $300+

How do you guys know what the wedding plate cost is?

like

I was thinking $200 but wasn't sure if that's too low.

You should give the cost of the dinner plates for each of you

I think it depends on age - I’ve heard $100-150 per head and I’m 22. I gave $160 in registry gifts and $50 in other gifts for a close friend, took a date to the wedding in NJ

^ you get a receipt with the plate

$59

Damn these are rich gifts wtf

You give them a nice gift so they give you a nice gift at your own wedding
