Great thread. I had the typical big fat Greek wedding. 349 people.

We were overwhelmed with our money gifts. Just over $21K and we did not have a wishing well.

You eventually give it all back over the years as friends and cousins get married :wink:

I know i have it written down at home but i cant remember the exact amount at work. i think it was about 3000 from about 60 people

it ranged from $0 - $50 a guest to $1000 from hubby's folks to $50 combined from my folks sister and brother, in saying that we also had some guests that bought gifts instead
