How much money should you spend on a wedding gift?
When giving cash or money, guests usually give between $50 – $100. This same concept applies when it comes to wedding gifts. If you are purchasing a present together as a couple for the bride and groom, you can decide to pool the money and spend between $100 – $200 for a nice gift.
Is it rude not to give a wedding gift?
Just because you have been invited to a wedding does not mean you are required to give a gift to the happy couple.
That being said, bringing a gift for the bride and groom is definitely expected, as you will most likely be fed, provided drinks, and an overall good time. Remember that the bride and groom probably put a lot of time, effort, and their own money into preparing the wedding so that all guests can have a good time.
Is a gift card a good wedding gift?
It is definitely appropriate to purchase a gift card for the couple, especially if they have them listed on their registry. This takes some of the stress off your plate, and ensured the bride and groom can pick something for themselves that they know they will love!
Do you have to buy the wedding gift from the bride and groom’s registry?
It is recommended to review the couple’s wedding registry to make sure your gift ideas align with their expectations. Whether you purchase directly from the registry or not is completely up to you. The only downside to this is the couple may get the same gift twice if someone else ends up buying it through their registry.
Do you have to give a gift if you don’t attend the wedding?
Definitely not – if you are unable to attend, you should send a card instead congratulating the couple on their wedding day. Make sure you do remember to RSVP with a “no” if you know for sure you will not be able to attend to avoid any confusion.
We hope that these wedding day gift ideas for the bride and groom help you feel inspired to pick the perfect gift for your friends or family tying the knot.
