Before we get down to choosing a gift, be sure to assess your budget. If you’re in the wedding, you may be spending a lot already so don’t feel like you have to go even more above and beyond with your gift! The couple is grateful to have you a part of their special day, and wouldn’t expect you to go broke on their behalf! $50 is a great starting point for any gift, but you may want to spend a little more depending on your relationship with the bride and/or groom.

Second, stumped on what to gift?  That's an easy fix: Buy off of the registry! Wedding registries like Zola will include all the gifts that the couple really wants, ranging from tangible items, to experiences, to honeymoon funds!

If you’d rather skip all the guesswork, and just send the couple a check, that’s an awesome gift too! Who wouldn't love that?!  

It's no secret weddings can be expensive, and the newlyweds are also thinking about their futures together beyond the “I Do’s.” Hello, honeymoon, home renovations, and starting a family?! The couple would surely love some extra cash to pay for these expenses so if you decide tangible gift giving isn’t your forte, checks and cash funds will do the trick!
