Couples tend to spend a lot of time on their registries, looking for items that truly represent them as a unit. To stay on the safe side, always get a gift off of their registry. If you know the couple well, or have something sentimental you want to give them, give it to them along with a one from the registry. It’s better safe than sorry, and that way you know that you’re getting them something practical and meaningful.

A lot of couples are now registering for honeymoon experiences, which can be really exciting for a guest. Want to treat your friends to a nice dinner, or river cruise one night? You can help them relax and have fun. It’s a really unique gift, and one that they’ll remember for years to come associated with you.

I always say you give a gift because you want to and what you feel comfortable with. The couple invited you to celebrate such a happy time in their life, and however you gift them is really appreciated! There are a lot of “rules” when it comes to gifting a check, and none of these are hard and fast rules, just general rule of thumb.
Close friend or family member - $150+ Relative or friend - $100+ Co-worker or distant relative - $50+ If you feel like you can’t quite spend that much, look for items on their registry, a lot of the time they’ll go on sale.

Another cost-saving, but still meaningful idea is going in on a larger registry gift with other friends who are attending the wedding. If it’s a group of friends from college or with a similar background, consider getting a little creative! One idea is tickets to your alma mater’s sports game, or some personalized sports gear to go along with a similarly themed registry item.
When buying gifts, always make sure to keep the couple you’re buying for in mind. A lot of people think “if this were my wedding,” but each couple is different!
