I got married 11 years ago so things could’ve changed, coming from same circles, I got $50-100 from my parents friends

Not sure if you specifically want to give a cash gift. There are many nice gifts you can give. Challah covers, and other Judaica items can also be nice. There are some really nice birkat hamazon sets you can give.

If you choose to do this please include a gift receipt so it can be exchanged if necessary. While any gift is nice , keep in mind a couple can get multiple birkas hamazon sets easily. I know a couple who got three. Same can go for any gift.

Yes, specifically asking about cash… is 100$ considered too cheap?

I don’t think so at all. Heimish circles I got married 10 years ago, and I got lots of 50,72 from parents friends with some 100s, more than that was from family

Depends what you mean by balebatish

$100 is great if you drive a sienna or odyssey. If you drive a Lexus or Acura or Tesla or higher, it’s a bit cheap

This definitely depends on your circles.

No one here can answer.

Ask your neighbors.
