Ok, new wedding gift question. My cousin is getting married who I saw recently, but haven't seen in probably the last 8 years. I am invited to his wedding which is inconveniently out of town when I also have to be inconveniently out of town the following weekend for my friend from college's wedding. Should my decline to attend my cousin's wedding include money in a card? Do I give as much as if I went? Do I put anything in the card at all?

If you don't want to go, send a card and throw some $ in there. Maybe $100-150.

I realize this has maybe been beaten to death, but the best rule of thumb is to consider the approximate cost of the meal and other questions (is it open bar, drink tickets, cash bar etc) and then add 15-30% on top of it. $300 for an open bar, quality dinner would be appropriate.
