Wedding Guest Expenses: Ways to Save

Rejoice! Warmer weather and looser COVID-19 restrictions are bringing people back together to celebrate weddings once again. While many of us are thrilled to toast to the newlyweds, our wallets might not exactly be on the same page.

We polled our members back in June and found that 59% of people are slated to attend one postponed wedding and 31% to attend two postponed weddings this year, while 63% plan to spend the same amount of money on wedding gifts. With so many weddings, the expenses can add up fast.

Whether you’re using a registry to find the perfect gift or want to think outside the box, here are four tips from Rebecca Gramuglia, consumer expert at, to help you find the perfect gift without breaking the bank.


1. Keep your budget in check.

Don’t feel like your gift needs to be as extravagant as the celebrations. Instead, consider your budget and your relationship with the newlyweds to determine how much you are comfortable with spending.


2. Research registry items.

If you’re shopping via the registry, do your research before making a purchase. Look for the product at other stores and compare prices to see if you can get it cheaper somewhere else.

Pro tip: If you do buy the item at another store, you can always call the retailer where the registry is located and let them know that the item has been purchased so they can remove it from the list.


3. Stack the savings.

Don’t settle for the price on the tag! Save money on wedding essentials and gifts by shopping deals and applying coupons. Plus, be sure to use a cash back site, like, to score a percentage of your money back on purchases from popular retailers such as Bloomingdale’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s and more.


4. Make it simple.


While registries are popular and helpful to figure out what the happy couple wants, there is absolutely nothing wrong with taking the simple route and giving cash. That way, they can spend the money on whatever they need.
