We had a wishing well for our wedding, we didn't expect guests to pay for their p/h amount plus gift. We had one couple give us nothing, heaps of couples gave us $50. On average it was around $100 with the exception of close friends and family giving more. I generally give $100, but have given $200 to close friends. Haven't been to a family members wedding since I was a child.

I give whatever we can afford at the time, minimum $50 maximum $100.
When I got married we had a lovely Sunday afternoon cocktail/canapé sort of reception. No main meal but lots of food and no one went hungry! Yet I heard my uncle tell my brother he was annoyed that he put the price of a meal in the wishing well and wanted to try and get it back since he was ripped off
was very hurtful that people think of wishing wells like that

I just think people should put in the 'wishing well' what they can afford. Honestly, $20 from my broke friends is far more valuable than $1000 from my incredibly well off uncle. I think it's sad that people have lost sight of what weddings are about and friendships are based on what you can give or get.
I couldn't live with myself knowing that a friend went without to give me an expensive gift or money. What sort of rotten human being expects hundreds from a struggling friend?
