What Do People Spend on Wedding Gifts?

Though they may not want to admit it, many couples are counting on receiving a certain amount of cash gifts (to help pay for some of the wedding and/or honeymoon).

But what do guests actually give?

According to the most recent (April 2013) issue of Moneysense magazine, reporting on a survey done by The Knot, here is what you can expect:

  • Guests who know you from the office (a colleague or business associate):  $50-$75
  • Friends or relatives:  $75-$100
  • Close friends or immediate relatives:  $100-$150

It was not made clear if these amounts were “per guest” or “per couple” (I hope not “per family”!).
