The Wedding Gift

Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti Bowl

This is a wonderful gift with a perfect (FREE with purchase) box.  This is a high end gift for a lavish wedding.

Tiffany & Co. Candlestick

This is the perfect gift if you are on a budget, but two would be expected.  This wedding gift has a lot of bang for your buck.  The wrapping is also FREE and is absolutely beautiful.

Remember, a card is a must and never bring a wedding gift to the ceremony or party.  A wedding gift can be mailed in advance or immediately after.  It is not etiquette to send a wedding gift up to a year after the wedding.

If you are sent an invitation, you must send a gift.  However, the exception that everyone wants to know:  If you are not a good friend a gift is not a must.

The other popular question, is what to give or how much.  This depends on the person receiving the invitation feels about the person sending it.  It is not true that you need to spend the amount per person.  How would you know how much that would be?  Plus, that is a little tacky.  Give from your heart.  If they are a real friend and won’t matter, how much money you sent.
