Wedding gift question

One of our GMs, who is a close friend of ours (obviously) is getting married this weekend.  I have attended very few weddings, and am not quite sure about the etiquette, gift-wise.  We are planning on giving them cash for a wedding gift, but I'm not sure how much is appropriate.  I wasn't invited to the bridal shower, so didn't give them a gift then.  I'm thinking like $200, but I really have no clue.  Suggestions are appreciated!!

    i'd say our friends gave us $75-125. that seemed reasonable to us.

    That makes me feel better, thank you.  FI originally said $100 but I didn't think that was really enough.  Of course I've read ten billion different things about what's appropriate, so I just wondered what people around here thought.

    I think that whatever you can afford is appropriate. We didn't expect a certain amount and actually were really surprised at how generous people were considering the cost of traveling OOT for the wedding.

    That being said, $100/couple was popular from friends and it sort of went up from there depending on how close we are and how well off they are financially.

    I find that generally if it's a good friend $100 from a couple is about right.  If they are close family members I'd say it would be more $150-$200.  Just my opinion!

    I would agree that $100 would be generous and appreciated!
