    I think you should rephrase your question.  One does not make money at a wedding…one is given gifts that equal a certain dollar amount.

    @peachacid:  yup. I think (hope) OP is asking how much everyone received, and not how much profits were made….

    I am also curious. I’ve heard stories of people being gifted amounts that begin in the $15,000 range. For the record, we’re in NYC and FI is Italian – i’m from the strict Irish Catholic background, so it’s looking likely we should make out nicely. Even my FMIL and mom have been telling us to not worry because we will “get it back”! I’d love to hear – and no, I don’t think it’s rude to ask. This is a board where people talk about their underwear and giving their partner’s oral – i don’t think anything is “off limits”!

    @RyanAndKristina2012:  we didn’t expect anything and were pleasantly surprised. I wouldn’t spend much time tallying what your ” potential earnings” could be and just enjoy your day.

    I think our total gifts came in around 10k.

    I think it also depends on where in the country you are … I know where i’m from, gifts are for the shower and cash is given at the wedding. However, other places, gifts brought to a wedding are the norm. 

    I know, personally, if FI and I are going to a wedding, we’re giving at least $300, but generally closer to $500 (depends on where we are, financially, and what sort of other costs we have to factor in)

    @RyanAndKristina2012:  It’s hard to tell tone on the internet but honestly, your OP sounds pretty rude. Insinuating that those who don’t feel comfortable sharing an exact figure have a stick up their ass probably isn’t going to get you the responces that you’re looking for. 

    ETA: But to answer your question, we received around $13k worth of monetary gifts when it was all said and done. That was based on approx 75 guests and a handful of very large gifts.
