How much money can you give for a wedding?
Mon­ey is per­haps the most ver­sa­tile gift that many give for a wed­ding or name day. A gift in the form of a cer­tain amount of mon­ey can be giv­en to loved ones or acquain­tances for their sig­nif­i­cant cel­e­bra­tion. How much mon­ey to give for a wed­ding? How much will please the new­ly­weds? Let’s dis­cuss the details and nuances of this issue togeth­er.

When should you give money?

Going to the wed­ding of a friend or broth­er, many decide to give mon­ey. Of course, many new­ly­weds like such a present, because this is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to pur­chase some­thing nec­es­sary for your home after the wed­ding. Many young peo­ple even warn all guests in advance that it is not worth spend­ing mon­ey on var­i­ous gifts, but it is bet­ter to present an enve­lope with a cer­tain amount. At many wed­dings, spe­cial box­es are even installed at the table of the bride and groom: every­one comes up to the new­ly­weds, con­grat­u­lates them and low­ers their enve­lope into the box. A gift in the form of a cer­tain amount of mon­ey is always a uni­ver­sal gift. But many guests think about whether such a gift would be appro­pri­ate, whether it is con­ve­nient to give mon­ey. Of course, such a gift will always be rel­e­vant if you know for sure that young peo­ple do not earn much mon­ey and after the cel­e­bra­tion they will live sep­a­rate­ly from their par­ents. Then such a present will come in handy.
You can also opt for mon­ey if you don’t know what to give your broth­er or nephew. In addi­tion, you can give a cer­tain amount if you just recent­ly learned about the cel­e­bra­tion and you sim­ply don’t have time to choose a wor­thy and prac­ti­cal present.

There are cer­tain rules of eti­quette that tell about who can be pre­sent­ed with such a present, and who should not. For exam­ple, if this is the wed­ding of a sis­ter, niece or friend, girl­friend, then such a gift would be appro­pri­ate. But if you were invit­ed to your cel­e­bra­tion by the boss or the boss, then it is tact­less to give an enve­lope with a cer­tain amount of mon­ey — it is bet­ter to choose an orig­i­nal mem­o­rable present.
It is also not cus­tom­ary to give mon­ey if the new­ly­weds are much old­er than you or young from very wealthy fam­i­lies.

What should be the amount?

In the event that you nev­er­the­less decide to present mon­ey, then you should decide how much you can give to the young. Too much mon­ey can put young peo­ple in an awk­ward posi­tion, and too lit­tle mon­ey can offend a loved one. There­fore, it is worth find­ing, as they say, the gold­en mean, espe­cial­ly since some­times the amount depends on who exact­ly the present is intend­ed for. If you are invit­ed to a cel­e­bra­tion with a work col­league, neigh­bor or your friend, that is, a cer­tain rule that will help you donate the right amount. First you need to find out how much a gala din­ner costs for one per­son. It is very easy to find out, because you know exact­ly which restau­rant you were invit­ed to. The nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion can be obtained by phone or on the insti­tu­tion’s web­site. Dou­ble this amount and get the desired result.
If you are invit­ed to the wed­ding of your best friend or girl­friend, or you are invit­ed by your close friends to the wed­ding of their chil­dren, then a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent scheme is need­ed here. As a rule, new­ly­weds are no more than thir­ty years old, and some­times no more than twen­ty. If the new­ly­weds are still study­ing or are already grad­u­at­ing from a uni­ver­si­ty, then this indi­cates that they still do not earn a liv­ing on their own, or they are only tak­ing the first steps towards acquir­ing their own cap­i­tal.  On aver­age, they give from three to five thou­sand, since you also need to take into account your own finan­cial capa­bil­i­ties.

The largest amounts are giv­en by close rel­a­tives of the new­ly­weds: grand­moth­ers, grand­fa­thers, uncles, aunts, etc.  The max­i­mum depends only on indi­vid­ual finan­cial capa­bil­i­ties. In any case, you should donate such an amount for which the new­ly­weds will be able to buy some­thing from small house­hold appli­ances.
If it is not pos­si­ble to give a large amount of mon­ey, then you can unite with oth­er rel­a­tives. For exam­ple, both grand­moth­ers can present one enve­lope, which will con­tain a decent amount. Or uncle, aunt and cousins, sis­ters can give one com­mon enve­lope from their whole fam­i­ly.
If you bought a present and want to present an enve­lope as an addi­tion­al gift, then it will be enough to invest in it from three to five thou­sand. The par­ents of the bride and groom may well present a more sub­stan­tial amount for the fes­tive cel­e­bra­tion of their chil­dren. As a rule, par­ents now give either mon­ey, or cer­tifi­cates for cer­tain pur­chas­es, or vouch­ers for a hon­ey­moon trip. In the event that you want to give your son or daugh­ter some­thing of fur­ni­ture or large house­hold appli­ances, then it is bet­ter to present this amount to them so that they can inde­pen­dent­ly choose a gift to their lik­ing.

How to present a present in an original way?

Tra­di­tion­al­ly, such a present is sealed in an ordi­nary enve­lope. But now you can also pur­chase orig­i­nal envelopes with beau­ti­ful inscrip­tions and wish­es. It is bet­ter to choose just such a spe­cial enve­lope. In addi­tion, you can find a post­card in the form of an enve­lope in which you can invest a cer­tain amount of mon­ey.

If you want the present to look orig­i­nal, then pur­chase a spe­cial jar with an inter­est­ing inscrip­tion in the gift shop. For exam­ple, “For joy”, “For trav­el”. Exchange a large bill for the same small­er denom­i­na­tions, care­ful­ly fold them and put them in a jar. Such an orig­i­nal present will def­i­nite­ly not go unno­ticed. You can also present mon­ey in a beau­ti­ful box, in which you can also put a post­card. In addi­tion, you can cre­ate a pic­ture or a cake from ban­knotes. Such an unusu­al pre­sen­ta­tion of a gift will look spec­tac­u­lar and orig­i­nal.
