Money as a wedding gift ?

In between all my weddings I found myself being interviewed on BBC Radio Leeds! We were discussing how much should be given as a gift!

My advise for anyone who finds them wondering what is the correct amount ;

Give what you feel comfortable with. If you are questioning if you have been mean, you probably have.

Spend what you would spend on a gift.

If you want to buy a gift, then do! It is still ok.

Remember it will only be you and the bride and groom who will know how much you have given. If things are difficult for you at the moment don’t be afraid to say ! You can always offer to take them out after the wedding or invite them for Sunday dinner when things get better.
