Bridal Shower: Request for a Monetary Gift

Posted By ginamb on May 30, 2011 at 8:33PM

My friend's shower invitation said to "please provide a monetary gift" so that the couple may enjoy their honeymoon.  There was no itinerary to know what their honeymoon will entail or what the monetary gift will exactly go towards.  Aside from it being tacky to send out a blanket invite requesting money (IMHO), how do I determine the appropriate amount to give?  $50 in the country where their honeymoon will take place will go a lot farther than say $50 in New York City.  I read a recent article here on this site about what folks give dor wedding gifts, but what about bridal shower gifts?  Thanks!
