i actually don't expect gifts from anyone, we weren't even going to register (until we were told we should, some people will want a registry!). anyway, i hadn't planned on getting any gifts, and i think will be surprised if we get any. maybe from those people that can't come, i guess.
as for in town weddings, i am in my good friends wedding in a couple weeks, and i think i got her a $100 gift off of her registry from Paul and I.

Wow, I had no idea we had to give so much! The one wedding where I did give $$ (see above0 was a destination wedding in the Bahamas - I don't think I could have afforded to give more.
If people gave us $100 I would consider that a generous gift from friends.

Normally I give $100 gifts.. but if the wedding is too classy I give a $200-$300 gift.. (per couple)
Keep in mind FI and I work in politics and sometimes we have compromises with high range people.. that's when we give a more expensive gift.. but the average is $100
