Your Go-To Guide to Finding the Right Wedding Gift
Finding the right gift for the bride-and-groom-to-be is very important, but it doesn't have to be stressful. There are many factors to consider when deciding what to give and how much to give, and Coinage has plenty of tips on how to find the right gift without breaking the bank. For example, depending on how far you have to travel, say out of state or to a destination wedding, it is alright to spend less on a gift or give less money. Another important gift-giving rule is to make sure you buy off the registry–the bride and groom have made this list because they know exactly they want and need. The only exception to this rule is if you know the bride and groom really well and have the perfect gift in mind. All in all, it is not about the gift, but your presence at the wedding that will me so much more to happy bride and groom.
