    I would say $100.
    Even though your spending a lot to get there etc, $50 sounds too cheap IMO

    I just think that puts a lot of extra pressure on the OP, she has certainly not been cheap in doing all that is required to attend and if I was the bride I would be so embarrassed to think my friend had put herself under such pressure.

    I tend to think that the rule of paying what it would cost to feed you is pretty hard to adhere to when there is such a massive variance on what people pay.

    Gosh I find that rude. If you want people to come to re-coup the expense of their wedding don't get married! $50 per person I feel is enough to cover the cost of a nice meal and glass of wine!

    I meal at your standard restaurant is about $35 and a glass of wine is $9. Covers your "cost" to the couple.

    Give what you can afford. I didn't want anything from my guests who traveled interstate! Have fun!

    It comes down to what the guest can afford.

    *I* would feel cheap only giving $50, regardless of how much i spent to get there, *but* I can afford the travel + the larger gift.

    I think the bride/couple would be grateful for whatever amount you gave.

    We had some guests that had travelled internationally as well as interstate. A couple of guests didnt give any money to the wishing well. It didn't bother us at all. We appreciated the effort they went to and sweet words in a card

    I found a lot of people just gave money in an envelope, no card and no name.

    One envelope had $20 with no name and another had $100 with no name.

    I like that idea :-)

    This is how me do wishing wells. A card with nothing in it and a separate anonymous envelope with money in it.
