Question by 08woad: Do you give a registry present and cash at a wedding or is just a registry present ok?
How much are you supposed to give at a wedding if the person getting married is a friend, and you are a bridesmaid.
1. Would it make a difference if she didn't pay for your bridesmaid dress?
2. Is giving just a registry present enough, or do you need to give cash as well?
I meant would it make a difference in the amount of the gift you gave if she didn't pay for the dress. I already had to spend $ 200 on the dress

There is no amount you are "supposed to" spend or give as a wedding gift.
1. It doesn't matter if she didn't pay for your bridesmaid dress.
2. Giving a registry present is enough. There is no need to give cash also.
You choose a gift and the amount you spend based on the relationship and your budget.
EDIT: Like I said, it doesn't matter that she didn't pay for your bridesmaid dress. When you accepted her request to be her bridesmaid, you pretty much agreed to pay for your dress. But I also said that the amount you spend on a gift depends on your budget. The cost of your dress is part of your budget. Only buy a gift that you can afford.
