Unless you've been living under a rock, you must know we are well into wedding season. This means the age old question of "How much money should I give as a wedding gift?" is being asked all throughout North America. It definitely is a tricky question because you certainly don't want to give too little, but you may not be able to afford to be as generous as you would like to be. So how do you find a happy medium and determine what the appropriate amount of money is for you to give at a wedding? We have the answer right here. The Wedding Envelope has created the perfect monetary gift calculator for any and all weddings be it a relative, very best friend, co-worker, or just an acquaintance.
How does it work? After researching weddings all over the United States and Canada, The Wedding Envelope has created a unique formula based on "the most important cost factors of a wedding and the average out-of-pocket costs to you, the guest." Go to the www.theweddingenvelope.com and fill out the survey (pictured to the right) to find out what you should give to the upcoming newlyweds in return for their generosity.
It is important to remember that this is a suggested monetary gift. "You should always give with your heart, as well as what you can afford."
