For wishing well. The wedding is for friends though not close friends. The note with the invite said they are putting it towards their first home together. I have heard the approx value of the meal but how to you gage that? I currently dont drink as breastfeeding and dp is working the next day. Any suggestions would be awesome as the wedding is Thursday.

How much would you give?

Considering my loathing of wishing well I'd say no more than $50. I think it's so wrong to expect the amount equal to a meal, really can't stand the whole wishing well rubbish.

We put in $100 in 2011. We sort of based it on reception per head. My dh was also groomsman tho.

We would do $100 if we were both attending, $50 if only one if us was.

If it's from both you & your DP, I think $100 is a pretty standard amount for a wedding gift from a couple.

For friends (not close friends) I'd probably give $50 -$80. This is why I hate wishing wells. Could find a lovely gift for $50 but it makes me feel like a tight *** when I am giving that amount as cash.

I think $50 is,plenty.
I had a wishing well at my wedding but we put a nice poem in the invite saying we didn't expect anything and gifts were fine,too. But we already had 4 children, house etc...
