    My wedding was tiny (family only- about 15 total), but still between cash & gifts from everyone else we received somewhere around $8000.

    I’m not married yet, but my sister had 165 guests and received…. drum roll….. $28,000

    We’re having double her guests so I guess we’ll be getting somewhere between $45,000-55,000 – Our budget is $50,000 and we are right on track with the budget.

    Tradition in our family is that you GIVE MONEY for the wedding so everyone just shows up with an envelope.

    We’re not married yet… although I’m not expecting money as a gift I would love to see even half of what some of these posters received. I didn’t realize people gifted such large sums! Of course, it all depends on the family, size of the wedding and I’m sure a ton of other factors.

    It’s custom in these neck of the woods to give cash, too. Everyone knows the couple will appreciate that the most. I usually give a $100 bill. I do the same for the shower, too. I hate sorting through shower registries and, again, I know they’ll appreciate the money.

    We had 148 guests in attendance and received gifts from several guests who did not attend the wedding as well.  We received approximately $2,000 in cash and checks. The majority of our guests gave us gifts from our registry or gift cards to stores and restaurants.
