Ask Wednesday

Dear Wednesday,
I don’t want to have children at the wedding, but there are some kids that I am willing to invite, like my nieces and nephews. If I put “adults only” on the invitations, but guests see other children at the reception, it would seem unfair. How can I fix this situation?

Address the invitation to the parents rather than the whole family on the outer and inner envelopes (Mr. and Mrs. Michael Jennings vs. The Jennings Family). Also, specify the number of guests that are invited on the RVSP (“x seats have been reserved in your honor”). You may still get some phone calls or emails asking if they can bring their children. Kindly let them know that you have very limited space at the venue and you are extending invitations to children for close family members only.

Ask Wednesday

Dear Wednesday,
How much should I spend on a wedding gift?

– – – – –

It depends on many factors such as your financial situation, your relationship to the couple, whether or not you are bringing a date, and the location of the wedding. For example, if you are flying across the country to attend the wedding, you may be expected to gift a bit less. You should also take into considering how many wedding-related events you’ll be attending. It’s suggested that you spend about 20% of your gift budget for each event and the rest toward the wedding gift. For a co-worker or an acquaintance, you should spend about $75-100; for a family member or friend, you should spend about $100-125; for a close relative or close friend, or if you are part of the bridal party, you should spend about $125-150. Don’t forget to count your date! If your close friend is getting married and you’re bringing a date (someone who does not know your friend very well), your gift budget should be around $200 ($125+$75). If you are attending this friend’s engagement party, bridal shower and the wedding, spend about $40 each on the shower and engagement gifts, and about $120 on the wedding gift.
