@jkwija: We had 160. Got about $3500 in cash and another $1500 or so in gift cards. $1000 was from my dad (who also paid for 1/2 the wedding, my mom paid the other 1/2-divorced parents). The biggest gifts were probably my Kitchenaid ($350) from my sister or knives ($500) from his dad/stepmom outside of the cash or the video camera from my best friends (total surprise and so awesome-best OFF Register gift EVER!)

OHHHH good question.  I’m always curious to know how much cash people bought, but would feel uncomfortable asking anybody…

We had 120 guests, got $12,000 in cash and I am not sure how much value in gifts but probably a few thousand. Largest single gift was $5,000 from the ILs.

We had 151 guests, and we got about $19k in cash. However, we also got a bunch of cash from people who did not attend the wedding, which we were not expecting. The largest cash gift was from DH’s brother, who gave $2k. We also got a gift of 5 private dinner parties with a chef from DH’s co-worker and his wife, and that probably cost him $4k-5k, so that was probably the most expensive thing that we got.

We had 205 people and got about $18,000. We had some people who gave $25 and some generous couples that gave $1,000. It was interesting because the people like his aunt who is a millionare 10x over gave $100 for a family of four and some regular middle class couples gave us $1,000. Not that it matter what anyone gave I just found it funny that the richest people gave the least.

I would almost feel bad if I got upwards of $20k. Does that make me weird? 😀

My parents gave us our honeymoon. It still embarasses me to say it. The Fiance and I are payig for the entire wedding ourselves but still it is an extemely generous gift.
