Miki, a 34-year old female who has helped plan weddings for lots of people is sympathetic to the plight of couples. She says wedding expenses are not cheap and everyone should give at least $100 for wedding gifts.
Give from $200 above if you come with a plus one. She, on the other hand, says she has given up to $500 for her close friends.
Jess who is 27 years old says that she will give more towards wedding gifts if the wedding is a luxurious one.
Meg, 31-years old is one who matches every gift she gets with an equal gift. She says she wrote on cards, how much each guest gifted her at her wedding and she gifts exactly that back to them.
This way, she says the average they spend on wedding gifts is $50-$75 per person, which also depends on how posh the place is.
Christina who is 28-years says that she would rather give cash or pay towards a cause/experience than buy a gift. She says it makes her feel better because cash experience will neither wear out like down comforters nor break like chinaware.
She will give $50 – $100 in cash, towards a honeymoon trip or posh restaurant meals vouchers instead.
