I'd say give whatever you are comfortable with and can afford... We had a wishing well as we really couldn't take gifts as we had no room in our tiny apartment. A group of about 6 guests chipped in for $80. And you know what we didn't care we were just grateful they came.. We did actually say no gifts but if u do we preferred money. It wasn't about how much per head.
If they really are friends they won't care if u gave them $5

Can you imagine if they get a gift from all their guests though? They are deemed to receive a few set of mugs and other things that they would have no use for... or that they wouldn't like.
I am personally more than happy to give whatever will make the couple happy. Gifts are supposed to make the recipient happy aren't they?
Anyway for wishing well I give $150-200 for close friends. Not so close I'd give $100 but I can afford it.
Don't worry about the amount, maybe $50 for the two of you and a nice card with some pretty thoughts.

I am in the exact situation. . we have a wedding on Saturday that included a poem in the invite about getting money. Honestly I don't care how cutesy the poem sounds, guests should be able to give what they like... if they want to buy a gift then that's their prerogative. ..
DH and I are disagreeing about how much. .I think $50 but he says $100. I would much rather put some thought and time into a personal gift.. but they specifically asked for money.

I hate hate hate wishing wells! Give what you can afford, a wedding is about the bride and groom celebrating and sharing their happiness with family & friends, not about the gifts they receive

I would say 100 for a couple but that's only if you can afford it. I hate wishing wells also.

We had a wishing well at our wedding and honstly, I couldnt have cared if people put in 10c or nothing.
We already had a house and was fully furnished so presents seemed redundant
