No more than £50.
I usually am :*)
Retro give what you can easily afford, it's the thought that counts, not the amount.
it'll depend how close you are - or more important, how close your wife is - to the nephew in question. No harm in giving more to one you see a lot of and get on well with, less to someone you're not normally in contact with.

£250 sounds generous. £1000 sounds very generous indeed
(unless of course the other brother is the groom's father, I hadn't thought of that)
you can't go Pete with an Attila.
I can't believe some of the amounts people can spare for gifts. I can only assume that a lot of regular ABers are quite wealthy. We had a spate of family weddings a few years back, including my son. He and wife put no gifts expected on their invite! The wedding cost next to nothing. Everybody had a great time!
The only thing my father in law contributed to his daughters wedding was two bottles of parmane, and he had to shamed into buying that.
I'd say £200, tops. If your other half has made up her mind, then, thats it! Not far off anyhow..
£20 for argos steam iron. I had 4 & none were steam :(
£100 gets my vote. £75 would also be acceptable and generous from an aunt and uncle.
I would also have said £100, but if Memsahib has spoken that's an end to it.
£100- £1k depending on how close you are and how flush you are really is pretty normal I think for closish family. You can give them in cash in a pretty good way or just buy something which will look good as a wedding gift.
Gave my nephew £100 for his wedding that I couldnt attend coz of work and I didnt have to buy myself an outfit. Nephew & bride honeymooned in Maldives = win win ;)
