How much should you spend on wedding party gifts?

May 27, 2014 | By: The Wise Wedding Planner

Wedding gifts are essential for your bridal party. How much you spend on these gifts depends on many factors. For the most part, wedding party gifts are supposed to be given as a token of appreciation for helping take part in the wedding. That being said, the gifts don’t need to be expensive. However, in general, the cost of the wedding party gifts should be in proportion to the amount of money spent on the wedding as a whole. For example, if you’re having a very extravagant wedding and spending thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of dollars, you shouldn’t scrimp on the wedding party gifts On the flip side, if you’re struggling to save money on your wedding you’ll also want to save money on the wedding party presents.

Get Creative
When you have a large number of wedding attendants you’ll want to save money on the gifts. You can get creative by making the gifts yourself or by choosing items that are highly discounted. When shopping online  you can find coupon codes that give you reduced prices and free shipping.

Shop Early
If you shop early you’ll be better able to find gift items that are thoughtful and useful while being inexpensive. Shopping early insures that you’ll get the items in time and that they will be in stock when you need them. Don’t wait until the last minute or you could end up with no gifts at all.

Get Personal
A great gift for wedding attendants is one that is personalized. You can order some very nice personal gifts at reasonable prices. Many of these gifts can be ordered online. Choose to include initials, first name, or birth stone of each individual taking part in the wedding. These gifts don’t need to be expensive but they do show that you took the time to find personal gifts for everyone.

Get Crafty
Making gifts yourself can be a creative and inexpensive way to give presents to your bridal party. Keep in mind that you only want to make things that will look professional when completed. Think about useful gifts that come from the heart.

Plan Ahead
If you want to save money on wedding party gifts the best piece of advice is to plan ahead. This gives you the best options for choosing between different gifts and also enables you to shop around for the best prices.
