“What is the appropriate wedding gift?”
There is no right or wrong answer because of the many factors that come into play when deciding on the amount.
However, we did come across a very helpful site which might be able to shed some light onto this age-old question: TheWeddingEnvelope.com.
TWE is an awesome wedding gift calculator site. After sifting through countless hours of wedding data, TWE finally came up with a formula that calculates the appropriate, approximate amount of money you should give a couple for their wedding gift.
A small sampling of the calculator!
TWE takes into account the most important cost factors of a wedding – time of year, location, black tie vs. casual, etc. – and combines them with personal factors (if you brought a guest, how close you are to the bride & groom) to calculate a unique monetary amount that you should give as your wedding gift to the newlyweds.
