How much should I spend on wedding gifts for couples?

The amount you spend on wedding gifts for couples is entirely up to you! It's all about what feels comfortable within your budget and how close you are to the couple. There's no right or wrong answer here. Some people like to match the value of the gift with the cost per person at the wedding, while others prefer to give something meaningful regardless of the price tag. Ultimately, it's the thought that counts. But if you are looking for a number, some guests spend within the $70-$300 range.

If couples request money instead, how much should I give as a wedding gift?

If couples request money as a wedding gift, the amount you give depends on your relationship with them and your personal financial situation. A common guideline is to consider covering the cost of your attendance at the wedding, but ultimately, the decision is yours. Give an amount that feels comfortable and reflects your well-wishes for the couple, most commonly staying within the same range as you would spend on a physical gift.

Now that you have the wedding gift covered, it's time to find your perfect wedding guest dress.
