The Wedding Gift
June wedding season is here. Perhaps you brides and grooms out there are wondering: Will your guests be able to afford anything on your registry?
Good news for you soon-to-be newlyweds: An overwhelming majority of the 1,000 random people polled across the country said they are still giving gifts to brides and grooms. In fact, 90 percent of respondents who had attended a wedding recently bought a gift.
The most popular price for a wedding gift was $100 to $199. The next popular price was $50 to $75.
That said, 70 percent of the respondents thought that the couple should not expect a gift from all their wedding guests.
Wedding guests were more frugal when it came to celebrations leading up to the wedding. Only 10 percent said they bought a gift for the engagement party and 37 percent for the bridal shower.
