How much money to give for a wedding

Everyone has been to a wedding at least once. Almost everyone gave money to young people. And I thought – how much is normal? We tell you how much money to give for a wedding, when it is appropriate to do it and how to present a present with a sparkle.

Should I give money for a wedding?

Presenting an envelope is appropriate in most cases, especially if:

  • You don’t know what to present, and the bride and groom did not indicate their preferences.
  • The young ones asked for too expensive gifts, each one worth more than you are willing to spend. In this case, it is appropriate to donate part of the amount in money.
  • Do you know that the bride and groom are saving up for a large purchase (apartment, car, etc.)
  • You understand that the future young family has financial difficulties.

How much money to give for a wedding

The amount of the gift depends on many factors, but, above all, on your capabilities. Even if everyone is giving 10 thousand rubles per person, and you can only afford 5, do not switch to buckwheat before paycheck and give as much money as you think is comfortable. In addition, take into account the couple’s closeness to you: good friends and family should be given more, and acquaintances and colleagues with whom you do not communicate closely – less. The number depends on the city, for example, in Moscow and Penza, the recommended size of the gift will be different. Someone thinks that the more luxurious the wedding, the more guests are obliged to give, but this is wrong. The amount that the young people spend on the celebration is their choice, you are not obliged to “reimburse” the costs for it.

We conducted a survey on Instagram and found out from subscribers how much money to give for a wedding. The majority of the respondents consider a normal amount of 5,000 rubles per person (10,000 per couple). Some cited the figure of 10,000 rubles per person, and the last place was taken by a gift equal to 3,000 rubles.

If you understand that you cannot give even 3,000, do not worry and give as much as is acceptable to you, most will take it with understanding. Although we know of exceptions, when couples not only named the desired amount per guest, but also openly said that if there is less in the envelope, then they can not come to the celebration. This is already impolite, think about whether you need such a holiday.
