While planning out wedding expenses, treat some gifts for your groomsmen will inevitably come up. How do you know how much to spend, though? Planning a wedding is already a daunting task without the thought of insulting those who helped you make your wedding a reality and showed you a great time while doing it. The last thing you want to do is be ungrateful toward some of your best friends. When deciding how much to spend on groomsmen gifts, take the following points into consideration.
What are my groomsmen like?
The most important thing to remember is that your gifts should reflect your budget. It’s just rude to have a million-dollar wedding and only spend around $10 on gifts. Although they may not say so, that’s a surefire way to make your groomsmen angry. We’re not saying to break the bank getting your groomsmen gifts, but get them something decent that you can afford. If you aren’t exactly able to spend a lot of money on your wedding in the first place, stay on the lookout for sales or coupon codes floating around the internet. You could also try having something custom-made for them instead. A little reference some sort of inside joke is perfect, for example.
Have I talked about this with my fiancée?
You are getting married, so this is an excellent opportunity to work together with your fiancée to determine how much to spend or come up with ideas for gifts if you have no idea. If anyone has given gifts often in the past, it will probably be your fiancée. She may be able to give you good advice regarding what to give as gifts so take advantage and run some ideas by her before you commit to a particular item. Make it an open discussion.
