Wedding planning is definitely the “gift that keeps on giving…” Each day I am both rewarded and entertained by the calls we get. The latestquestion to hit my voicemail has been “what is an appropriate amount to give for a wedding at the Bridgewater Manor?” As the economy changes, it seems that more and more people may want to attend a wedding but can’t necessarily afford to attend a wedding. So what to do?
Well, in the past the standard advice by expertshas been to “cover your plate then add $25.” Ok, sounds easy enough, right? Not really! As the wedding industry forever evolvesand the economy changes, venues are offering great promotions and the “norm” per plate `has changed drasticly.
So, what to do? The Wedding Envelope puts a unique twist on trying to figure out the right amount to give! By taking in such factors as: travel distance, relationship to the couple, current income, state of reception, etc., they offer a “Wedding Gift Calculator” that is definately worth trying!
