How much to give the bride and groom as a wedding gift can be a tricky decision, so our latest Moneywise poll asked how much on average people give – as an individual, not as a household.
Almost three in ten (27%) readers who voted said that if they a guest to the whole wedding day, they’d give a gift worth between £26 and £50.
A further 16% attending the entire wedding day pay between £76 and £100, 13% spend between £51 and £75, 11% shell out £101 or more, and 9% spend up to £25.
In comparison, the most popular response (11%) among those attending just the evening do was to spend up to £25, followed by £26 to £50 (9%).
Very few spent over £50 if they were only a guest to the evening – 1% said they’d spend £52 to £75, a further 1% said they’d spend £76 to £100, and 2% said they’d spend £101 or more.
Recent research from American Express found that the average bill per wedding guest for a gift was £85 – although its research didn’t differentiate between those attending the whole day and those only attending the evening.
