How much is good?
A very, very dear friend of mine (he held me in his arms when I was in the hospital after brain surgery and is one of my closest friends) is a gay man who is getting married to his partner of 30 years.
I just got an invitation to the wedding! I am so thrilled for my friend. His partner had been pushing for this marriage and for a long time my friend was unsure because he actually held the belief that marriage was between a man and a woman. I'm so glad that he has changed his mind. Believe me, they belong together.
The invitation had a request that in lieu of a gift, make a donation to the (wonderful) church where they will be married. Although I'm Jewish, I have been with my friend to this church several times and it is a very welcoming place. I will certainly make a donation, but my question is, what sum would make a nice wedding gift and do I tell my friend how much or just send it to the church with a note that it is in honor of their wedding?
Thanks for any tips on this! This really makes me happy.
