Q: I want to give money to my friend's son as a wedding gift. What's a good amount? I don't want to give too little.

A: In many circles, most guests spend around $100 on the wedding present. Depending upon your own financial circumstances and what's customary in your community, you can give more or less. Another factor to keep in mind is your relationship with the couple: If you're good friends of the groom's parents, you'll probably spend more than if you were pals from the local health club.
