We had about 150 guests at a black-tie optional wedding and received a little over  $1,600 in cash and checks. The rest of our gifts were goods from our registries (china, flatware, glassware, linens, etc.) or gift cards.

300 guests…we received roughly $70K.

Though in both mine and my DH’s cultures, it’s customary to give monetary gifts..

We had 80 guests and received about $2000. Most cards were small gifts, we got a few large checks from close family members that brought up the total. It was enough for us to enjoy our honeymoon.

We had a registry and got a good amount of gifts. Invited around 115 people, and got probably close to $2k. My work gave me $500!

We invited 117 and 65 attended. We had a very small registry. We recieved probably around $8K. But my grandparents were incredibly generous and the majority of that came from them.

My wedding to my ex-husband was held on Long Island and we received about $30,000 from 125 guests. I am not a New Yorker so I was shocked but I think it’s a regional thing.

It’s actually normal in my circle to not give monetary gifts. We got maybe 1000 dollars.

We had 189 guests and I think we made about $18,000. After paying the remainder of our bills we have $10,000 in savings for a house
