    Could you please help me with questions about wedding gifts?

    I have been living in the U.S. for just 4 years and recently have been invited to a wedding. I've never been to American wedding before and don't know many things... I hope you can answer my questions:

    1. Along with the invitations we received the cards with links to several stores' registries with the presents bride and groom to be want. The average price of the item is $60. Should we buy just one item as a gift, or several?
    2. Should we give something else as a gift along with the item from the registry?
    3. Should we give money as a gift, if yes, how much?

    I'd really appreciate your advice

    Just about every wedding I have went to I would either end up buying a crystal vase or give them $50 dollars.

    Buy one item off of the registries, then buy one small gift like some candles or any thing in home decor.

    It depends on how close you are to this person..if it is a family/good friend, then i suggest getting a gift because it would come off as rather rude to give just money. However, it you don't know the person well, money is much appreciated along w/ a small gift. I"m sure they can see that you care/ are considerate.

    You can buy a gift card from where they have their wedding registry if you don't want to give cash, but honestly most couples appreciate the cash since they are just starting out.

    It really depends on how close you are to the bride and groom.  If you are direct a family member (which I assume your not) the gift would escalate in price being that it is such a special occasion.  If you are a close friend that would make a difference as well.  If you are an acquaintance a smaller priced gift will do.  In either case your gift should reflect what your personal circumstances allow.  Your means may be $100, $60, or even $30.  If  you feel comfortable choosing from their registry while including a monetary gift, that would be an added bonus and maybe expected from a family member or close friend.  However if you are a regular guest one gift should suffice.  Either gift from the  registry or a monetary gift  plus a small card.
