Buying the Perfect Wedding Gift – How Much to Spend

Wedding favor ideas

If your mailbox is filled with wedding invitations, you are probably wondering how much to spend on each gift. There is an etiquette to wedding gifts, and it is important to follow certain guidelines in terms of spending and gift selection.

The amount you are expected to spend is dictated by a number of factors, including your relationship with the bride or groom and the nature of the ceremony. Brides who are planning a high-end wedding at the local country club may have greater expectations in terms of gifts, while other couples may be looking for nothing more than basic household items to get them started in their new home.

Co-workers and Casual Acquaintances
If you are attending the wedding of a co-worker or casual acquaintance, you should shoot for a gift costing between $75-100. A large number of popular home appliances and furnishings fall into that category, so you should be able to find something quite nice.

Be sure to consult the bridal registry when choosing a gift. Having a predetermined list to choose from will make selecting a good present – and staying within your budget – a lot easier.

Family Members and Close Friends
You can expect to spend a bit more on a wedding gift for a close friend or family member. Wedding planners and etiquette experts recommend spending between $100 and $150 on a wedding gift for a family member or close friend. If you are particularly close to the bride and groom and want to make a real impression, you are free to spend a bit more.

Personal Preference
In the end, how much to spend on a wedding present is a personal decision. You may feel that a particular wedding ceremony warrants a more elaborate and more expensive gift, even if the bride or groom is not a close relative or lifelong friend.

No matter how much you ultimately spend, it is always a good idea to review the bridal registry before going off on your own. If everything on the bridal registry has already been purchased or the remaining items are outside your price range, you may need to venture off the list. If not, buying from the registry is the best way to ensure the happy couple will get something they really want and need.

Hand-Crafted Mulberry Paper Invitations

Mulberry Paper Wedding Invitation Box

The paper mulberry also known as Saa paper is a tree in the Moracea family, which is native to eastern Asia. Its other names include Kozo, Halibun, Tapacloth tree, and Kalivon.

The bark of this tree is made up of very firm fibers, and can be utilized for creating high-quality paper. The tender twigs and leaves can serve and feed deer, thus this tree is at times called as the “Deer’s Tree”. A Fijan term “Masi” was used to delineate the paper mulberry trees, which was transported to the Pacific during journeys of migration. Its bark is employed to create cloth and then colored or dyed and embellished with traditional patterns. The finished cloth is used and worn during several Fijian ceremonies, to include funerals, weddings, and even after the birth of a new baby.

Wedding Flowers
If you are thinking about using mulberry paper in your wedding, you’ll be delighted to know that there are many convincing reasons why you should do so. The number one reason is that flowers made from mulberry paper will not wilt or die before the wedding even begins. Real flowers if not received and arranged on the day of the wedding can wilt or die for the reason that they have very limited life span and they need cool temperature to survive. Therefore, if you don’t have a place with the right temperature for real flowers to live, expect that they won’t look as pretty and glamorous on your wedding day.

Another significant reason is that almost any kind of flower that you desire to see on your wedding will grace your special day if you use the Saa paper flowers. Your options will not be narrowed down on which flower is blooming on that particular season. If roses is your bet during the winter season, even if they are still not in full bloom, all you need to do is to search an online store that offer mulberry paper roses.

Wedding Invitations
When it comes to invitations, you can choose from the variety of colors that this paper is available to suit your wedding theme. Whether you’ll have the traditional church wedding, a sophisticated beach wedding, or something out of the ordinary, you’ll sure find the perfect color to achieve the look and feel from your silk invitation boxes that you want your guests to experience. You may even try to ask your preferred provider if they can give you the mulberry paper in bi-color.
