    I do pretty much what you did; a group gift for shower, plus something just from me and then a monetary gift for the wedding.  I also would give a gift at the bachelorette party.

    I haven’t been in a wedding yet, first one to get married out of my group of friends, but my Maid/Matron of Honor bought us 2 shower gifts (the 2nd shower was a “gift-card” shower, so she got a gift card for Princess Auto for DH.  He appreciated it, lol).  And she and her SO gave us a hefty cheque at the wedding.. I think both mine and DH’s mouth dropped when we opened the card.  I did pay for her dress, my Mum paid for her hair and I had a pretty-laid back bachlorette party, so she didn’t spend as much as other’s may for the wedding.

    I will definitely be buying gifts when/if I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding party, either group or individual, depending on the wedding party.

    Although I told them they didn’t have to, they each got me a shower and wedding gift.

    For my MOH’s wedding a few years ago, we all went in on a shower gift for her (small decorations for her home for every holiday, like handtowels with shamrocks on them for St. Patrick’s Day, a pretty platter for displaying Easter eggs, a cute big Halloween bowl to hold candy, etc.) with the exception on one bridesmaid who chose not to.

    For the wedding, I gave her cash from my Fiance (then boyfriend) and I.
