    100 a head is normal...if your taking a date add more.

    I would get a lovely card and a box of chocolates or bottle of champagne for the tgd couple to enjoy after the wedding.

    Default Friend's Wedding - 'Wishing Well'? - How does it work?

    We also put in what covers ourselves, so $100-150 each usually. We didn't have a wishing well at our wedding, some got us gifts and some gave cash. The cash we received was usually about $100 per couple though some gave $50 per couple. Just give what you can afford.

    Our wedding was about $150/head - so if they gave us $50 they got an awesome three course meal and unlimited alcohol for $25 each lol. But that was our choice, we could have had a cheaper wedding (tough in Sydney though!)

    We do $100 or $50. Depends on our financial situation at the time.

    We've given around $50 (as a couple) in wishing wells. We're not big on gifts out of obligation, and there's no way we'd spend more than $50 on a gift for anyone other than immediate family.

    We asked for no gifts at our wedding, but were given a few gift cards/cash between $50 and $150 value.

    I'm not a fan of gifts out of obligation either, but I think weddings are different. I don't like bridal showers and kitchen teas. I had a hens and said no gifts.

    We do $100. If it's a close friend and funds allow we would consider stretching it to $200
