Neither too expensive nor too cheap- wedding gifts and budget problems
Somehow the bride and groom ease the work of the guests with the wedding registry. Usually as indicated that list should have a variety of things as people to have from where to choose, having alternatives even in price. But sometimes that is something inexistent so how do you work with that? Mostly, the concern everyone meets is how much to spend on a wedding gift?
Starting with your budget limit this is the right answer. Too inconclusive so there may be other things to give you a reference. So that, based on the relationship you have with the bride and groom, your posture at that wedding from a simple guest as neighbor or sibling the price of the wedding giftmay be defined so:
- At maximum $100 for someone you are in cordial relations. It can be your co-worker, your boss’s daughter or son or something like that. Between real friendship and people you see almost daily.
- Up to $150 for friends, neighbors, family friends, people you know more, you spend time with.
- The expensive part from $150 to as much as you consider and have for friends meaning being one of the bridesmaids or groomsmen, for siblings, people you love, part of your life.
Besides this how much to spend on a wedding gift is also correlated to the wedding type. For a sophisticated one, luxuriant wedding for sure that pretenses are high and also something else that ruins the initial plan will be the type of wedding- you know there are cases of grooms that announce they don’t want any gifts, no wedding registry. In any case we establish a minimum of $70.
Now what if the grooms will specify about money gifts instead? The same for single and double for families.
