Whether you are the maid of honor or an old college roommate, the gift you give says a lot about you. Many find themselves in a weird place trying to determine how much to spend, where to get the gift, and what to get the happy couple. We have a guide to buying wedding gifts to help you sort through the sometimes complicated waters of purchasing wedding presents.
Registry items are just suggestions, and you aren’t obligated to pick anything off the list. You are welcome to choose your own gift if you think there is something the couple will love. The benefit of buying off a registry is that you know the couple wants what you are giving them.
If you are shipping the gift to the bride and groom, you should send it at least two weeks before the wedding, but technically you have up to a year after the wedding to send a gift. If you don’t have one in time for the wedding, try to do it immediately after so you don’t procrastinate.
Cash is tricky because there is no specific amount that is appropriate to give, and all couples have a different idea of what is generous and what is not. If giving cash makes you uncomfortable, try a gift card to a store where the couple is registered.
If the registry is full of items you can possibly afford to buy, never feel obligated to buy from that list. Instead, choose something meaningful that fits in your budget. Homemade items often mean more to the couple than a cookie sheet bought from the store.
Your budget and your relationship with the couple should guide how much you spend on a wedding gift. Even the bride’s best friend is not obligated to spend a certain amount. Remember that your gift has to include wrapping and gift tags when you are doing your budget.
You might be trying to find the most perfect gift and decorating it with the perfect wrapping and black gift tags, but remember it’s the thought that counts most to the bridge and groom.
"For our August wedding, we have collected over 150 vintage glasses for our guests to drink their cocktails out of. We are inviting them to take the glasses home, and wanted a way of letting the caterers decipher between what goes back to the rental company and what stays. These stickers are perfect for the bottom of the glasses and they match our wedding invitations and color scheme."
"Oh my goodness I love these! We put an ampersand instead of a letter and they look so cute. The pink went well with our invitations even though they weren't an exact match. (We did the "Flourishing Joy" ones.) They're going to go on our macaroon boxes and I think they're perfect."
"loved this idea. We put these stickers on little mason jars with pink covered chocolate inside and it look beautiful for her Bridal shower..."
"I actually ordered the product in the colors shown, since my daughter's theme is black and gold. My plan is to put them on clear cello bags to be used as party favors and to set up a candy bar and let the guests fill their own bags. They arrived much quicker then expected."
"I changed the text to: "showering Mary with love" and put on a wrapper to go around handmade soap as a favor for our shower guests. The bride and guests loved it!"
