I normally have a standing policy of not going to a wedding unless I am close with the bride or groom, but I have recently been corralled into going to a wedding for a person I barely know. The bride and I have mutual friends that we are really close with, so we (the friends) are going together as a group. I like the person - but have only met her a handful of times. What is a socially acceptable gift? I know the standard convention is to at least cover the cost of your plate, but I don't even know anything about the wedding. Plus, I didn't receive the couple's gift registry, so I don't even know what they need. I was thinking $300 in cash, but it seems kind of tacky. Any suggestions?
