Money is perhaps the most versatile gift that many give for a wedding or name day.

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.
