S06 E17 – Wedding Gifts – How much to give? How much to expect to receive?

Laura and Benny Show - Laura Redhead Benson

Oct 3 2023 • 28 mins

After recently giving advice to friends and family, Laura and Benny share their take on Wedding Gifts.

God Bless the days of brown envelopes because cash is king in Ireland’s Wedding Gift Circles. Physical gifts are rare. But how much do people actually gift? Caution and realism is needed!

Balance what you spend vs what you expect in return. The range of gifts taps out at a certain monetary value so don’t presume if you spend more, you get more back.

Laura time hops back a generation, to the land of toasters! Benny does some average gestimations.

How to pick a gift amount is suggested and the helpful tradition of dropping in a card before the big day is flagged.

Other brief money topics include: pre-wedding costs, couples gifting to each other and couples gifting to everyone!

Remember whatever your situation, if you got invited people want you there.
