Have you got a slew of wedding invitations for June? According to TheKnot.com, this is the most popular month for weddings, and your wallet might be feeling the strain. So here are some tips on how to be a good guest without breaking your budget.
Depending on how close you are to the engaged couple, your financial involvement in their wedding can go deep from engagement parties straight through to the wedding.
So what does that add up to? WeddingChannel.com says if you’re planning to spend $200, here’s how to break it down: spend 20% on the engagement and shower gift ($40 for each), and 60% or $120 on the wedding gift.
And when it comes to the wedding gift, don’t get creative: stick with the registry, don’t bring the gift to the wedding, and if you’re shopping last-minute, WeddingChannel.com recommends to buy a gift card to one of the stores the couple registered with.
Keep in mind that if you can’t attend the reception –say you’re too strapped to travel to their wedding- you should still send the couple a gift.
