    Somewhere around $100, depending on how well we know the couple and the other costs of attending the wedding (travel, etc)

    EDIT: I’m in the Northeast.

    Between $50 – $75, although, if I know the couple really well, I’ll do $100. I’m in Eastern Canada.

    Depends on how close we are to the couple and how much extra money we have at the time (ha), normally between $50 and $100.  I’m in Michigan.

    I’m from Georgia and I usually give about $20 worth for a gift. Honestly, I’ve been using the “poor college” student excuse. Maybe if I had a professional job I would spend more. I can’t wait until this summer when I do have one 🙂

    I’m from NJ and woul always give $100/couple… and this was even when I was a student.  I live in MD now, and am starting to get the sense that it might be high for people around here.  I’ve also noticed that more people in MD give gifts rather than cash for weddings. 

    I didn’t think there would be such a huge difference b/w MD and NJ b/c they are sort of in the same region.  Maybe it’s just FH’s MD family and friends?  I’m pretty confused lol.

    I give a gift, never cash. The cost ranges from $50-$200, depending on our relationship.

    I always give $100 from the 2 of us.  I even gave this much while I was a student. 

    If someone gave me a blank card, or even $20, I would appreciate it.  However, I would feel embarassed to give that amount.

    I always give a gift, never cash, but that gift is priced at about $100/couple (I also spent this when I was a student – although I was single so it was $50-$60 from me as an individual).  I am from IN and Darling Husband is from GA.
