Guidelines For Picking the Right Wedding Gift


A wedding is the most special and cherished event, among others, in the lives of a couple. It not only showcases the bond of love between the couple, but also affirms a lifelong commitment to each other. This is precisely, where selecting ideal wedding gifts becomes so important. Receiving an invitation to a wedding is an expression of the love and respect the bride and groom have for you and it is but natural that you give wedding gifts as a token of the love and friendship that you enjoy with them.

There are some important principles of etiquette which pertain to weddings, i.e., from the manner in which you respond to the invitation, to the rules of purchasing and giving wedding gifts. Knowing when it is appropriate to give a gift and when it is not, is one of the key rules in wedding gift guidelines. For example, you must purchase a gift if you have received an invitation to a wedding that you are most likely to attend. On the other hand, it would also be a good idea to mail wedding gifts, in the event that you cannot. In some instances, if you receive an invitation to a wedding after it has taken place, you may not be obliged to send a gift. A suitable congratulatory card will suffice, instead.

Selecting suitable wedding gifts for a couple can be pretty confusing and tricky. This is because there are no formulas or rules to follow. However, the choice of gift you give will depend on two factors – the kind of relationship you enjoy with the new couple and the budget that permits you to purchase a useful gift. With the availability of bridal and wedding registries, it is indeed, easy to choose wedding gifts. On the other hand, if you are comfortable and wish to pick wedding gifts without consulting such registries, you should feel free to do so.

Another important, although not mandatory rule, is the timing and place for giving wedding gifts. In some cases, it is accepted as okay to send or personally give wedding gifts just before the date of the wedding. However, in conformity with established customs and traditions, the date and venue of the wedding reception, is the place for giving wedding gifts. In case you attend the wedding without giving a gift, it is customary and acceptable to mail your gift to the new couple’s home.

There are, however, no hard and fast rules, insofar as the type and nature of the wedding gifts you give, or whether giving gifts is necessary at all. This is because you may enjoy a very close relationship with the couple which can offset any ill feeling if you do not present a gift to them. A good idea, to select a gift for a couple with whom you enjoy a close relationship with, is to be observant and a good listener. What this means is to take a close look around their home, or listen attentively to their conversation and you may pick valuable tips on what, specifically, they would need. Useful wedding gifts can cement your relationship with the new couple even further.

We believe that everyone is entitled to show their love and commitment to each other regardless of their sexuality.
