I'm not a fan of wishing wells but if I don't have any other options I'll give $100 from DH and I.
Though willow tree figures are my go to wedding gift. I think they are lovely. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1366976351.879229.jpg

I would give $50 for work friend, not super close - $100 for a close friend or close family member.

Anyway, We had an optional wishing well.
It wasn't plastered in our invite that it would be there, we just mentioned it to people who asked what we 'needed' as a gift. And our parents who said they were giving cash anyway as they wanted us to have a good time on our honeymoon.
So we got some presents and people who like wishing wells put into that.
Thing is, a few guests didn't buy a gift OR put in the well! Not even a card :-/
That's kinda rude I feel.
We had a $110 per has type wedding so it's not like it was informal.
I never said anything to anyone. This is the first time I've really mentioned it.

We got married young and most of our guests had to travel interstate to attend so we certainly didn't expect extravagant gifts. Our oldest school friends who were uni students at the time each bought us a beautiful quality kitchen tool (ice-cream scoop, garlic crush etc). We still have a beautifully decked out kitchen 10 years on and I think of them and smile whenever we use them It really is the thought that matters
The last wedding we went to we gave a gift of around $100 value. The idea of giving $200 or more makes me a little ill tbh

OP - give how much your heart desires. I'm sure they will appreciate however much you give them.

We generally give $100.
We flew from London to Melbourne to go to DH best friends wedding so obviously us being there was gift enough!
Most people I know use the money for the honeymoon, one couple set up an account at Flight Centre and people could just contribute to that.
