Since we are entering the hot season for weddings, we’ve curated some tips on Guest Gifting Etiquette. The question guests always come across when RSVPing to weddings is, “what should I get them?”. Whether you are close to the couple, or not, there is given etiquette to follow by when purchasing their wedding gift, shower gift, or even their engagement gift. You should purchase a gift for any event you are invited to. Be the best gift giver this wedding season with these fun and stylish ideas!
Don’t get too carried away in the creative category when selecting a gift to purchase for a couple. They have a gift registry for a reason. And this will help since you can pick from on average of 100+ gifts you know that they will love! If you stick to their gift registry it’s nearly impossible for you to duplicate a gift someone else has already given. A good rule of thumb to go by when purchasing gifts for the couple is to always spend more than $50. If you are invited and are attending more than one of their events such as their engagement party, wedding shower, or their wedding gift, in general, make sure to organize financially on how much you want/should be spending on more than one gift.
If you’re going with a group of friends that were invited to a wedding it’s such a smart (and fun) idea to split up a larger, more expensive gift for the couple! Don’t be tardy to the party. Send/give your gifts in a timely manner to the couple. A reasonable time frame is within 2 months after the wedding.
