I have a big wedding to go to in a couple of weeks. My sister-in-laws niece. I have avoided weddings like the plague (sorry ladies) up to now and no nothing about them. How much should I spend on a wedding present and what should I get? And what have you received that you didn't like or thought was silly? (The first one to suggest a toaster oven will have to spend 4 hours talking to a Bose salesman with the white van guys waiting for you out front!). I don't want to spend more than a family member or close friend, but don't want to appear to be a cheap bast**d either (which I really am). I don't really care how much I spend, I just want the present to be appropriate. I like my sister-in-law very much and she's pretty much in charge of things so I want to do it right. And she's way to busy right now to be bothered with my little problem. So, any idea's?
