So you’ve been invited to a wedding of a good friend or close relative. The age old the conundrum of what to buy the couple and its appropriateness is something that baffles most if not all wedding guests.
A wedding is one of the most memorable days in a couple’s life and as a guest, you need to understand this, which is why it’s good to invest time when selecting their gift. Below is an essential guide to follow as a general rule of thumb when it comes to Wedding Gift-Giving etiquette.
Think outside the box
Be original. Gifts should be thoughtful and considerate yet simultaneously fit the newlyweds’ wants and needs. Giving something unforgettable goes a long way; the couple may have mentioned a few luxuries that they never got down to actually purchasing. However, such presents needn’t be completely random for the sake of standing out, because gifts do not necessarily need to be excessively unique to the extent of becoming eccentric.
Consider the couple’s tastes
One man’s meat is another man’s poison – and this is no different when it comes to gift-giving to newlyweds. Usually the couple share similar interests, so buying something that they can both use or enjoy shouldn’t be challenging. So what if you don’t know the couple well? This is where a gift registry is a safe bet. However, if you don’t see a gift you would like to give, or if the couple doesn’t have a registry, a generic wedding gift is the way to go.
Keep the Wedding Registry in mind
This list makes your task of gift-buying a tad easier as it advises you on what knickknacks the couple is interested in or more importantly, needs. Moreover, the headache of guesswork when shopping is done away with altogether. Even if the registry is not used, it can be a tool to brainstorm ideas as to the couple’s preferences and point shoppers in the right direction.
