Wedding Gift Etiquette

download (48)It’s June and the wedding invitations are arriving, and the question becomes how much do you spend on a wedding gift? The answer is: It depends…

At no time do you spend more than your budget allows.

You are encouraged to buy items off the registry. You can plug either the bride or grooms name into RegistryFinder.com and discover where the couple has registered. Start early to give yourself more options.

Can you give cash? Cash is the ultimate wedding gift, both for giver and recipient. Cash doesn’t have to be bought at a certain store, is never the wrong color, and is easy to wrap by enclosing it in a thoughtful wedding card. For the couple, cash does not need to be returned with a gift receipt, will match any household décor, and can be used for many purchases and expenses no matter what the amount, cash is useful and practical gift to help a couple start their life together.

Whether you are buying a gift from the couple’s registry or giving cash, the guidelines for the amount are similar.
