    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 Fiance is Italian – i’m from the strict Irish Catholic background, so it’s looking likely we should make out nicely. Even my Future Mother-In-Law 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 Fiance 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.
