Wedding Gift FAQ
Looking through this list may bring up some questions about wedding gift etiquette. Here are the answers to questions that are asked most often.
A common guideline for determining the amount to spend on a wedding gift is to cover the cost of your attendance, which typically ranges from $50 to $200 per guest. For close friends and family, it’s common to be more generous and consider gifts in the higher range. But it’s the thought and sentiment behind the gift that matters most, so choose something meaningful and within your budget.
Consider digital gifts like e-gift cards to the couple’s favorite restaurant or an online store as a last-minute wedding gift since they can be delivered instantly. Some personalized gifts, like a photo album or a custom-made piece of art, can often be ordered with quick turnaround times. Another idea is to contribute to their honeymoon fund through their wedding registry.
Look for unique and personalized gifts like custom-made artwork or a heartfelt photo album filled with memories for the couple who seemingly has everything. Or you could gift them an experience rather than a physical item. Think of tickets to a show or a romantic dinner at an upscale restaurant. Another thoughtful idea is to donate to a charity or cause that’s meaningful to the couple in their name.
Typically, a gift in the range of $50 to $150 per guest is appropriate. A good starting point is to aim for an amount that at least covers the cost of your attendance, including expenses like travel and accommodation, when applicable. Adding a heartfelt card to your cash gift adds a personal touch.
