If I’m part of the bridal party- do I still have to give a gift?
Would you go to a party (any party) empty handed? Not really right? Yes as part of the bridal party you should still give a gift. Yes being in a wedding can add up, but saying yes to being a bridesmaid, groomsmen, maid-of-honor or best man means you are capable of what comes with the job.
The proper etiquette is give what you think your plate would cost and if you bring a guest add their plate in there too. If you are really tight on cash and can’t afford it, give a reasonable amount you can afford. Average $100-$200.
Bridesmaids & Maid-of-honors don’t forget the shower gift as well. That can be something small since you are more then likely hosting the bash!!!
