We have a wedding to attend at a farm event space under a tent on July 31st, at 3:30 pm in Rehoboth, MA. I have two questions: one is about a wedding gift and the second is about what I should wear?
We are distant cousins but close to the bride. My teenager daughter is in the wedding party. I am also, doing the bride’s hair on her wedding day. I feel awkward about charging her for doing her hair so we have not discussed it.
If I charged her, what do I give for a gift? If I don’t charge her, what do I give for a gift? There will be myself, my husband and my daughter at this wedding.

- You should be able to find info about where they are registered on their wedding website.
- If the wedding couple are asking for money, estimate what it will cost your hosts to host your husband and daughter. Approximately a hundred dollars per guest, but your daughter would be half price because she wouldn't be consuming alcohol.
- It is going to be bloody hot and humid in Rehoboth, MA, in mid-summer so don't get too gussied up. If the tent is not air-conditioned, it will be even hotter.
- Wear a really nice sundress that can pass for a cocktail dress. It is more about the quality of the dress than the dressiness of the outfit.
