(Wedding) Bells Will Be Ringing

June is here, which means mailboxes are filled to the brim with wedding invitations.  Here are a few tips to consider when selecting a gift for the happy couple.

  • Use registries.  Couples choose things they want or need, so don't worry about being unoriginal.  Go off-registry for personalized items or if you know the gift especially suits their interests. 
  • Include a gift receipt.  Make it easy for the couple to return or exchange duplicate items.
  • Consider your budget.  Don’t buy something you can’t afford.
  • Send the gift early.  Or, simply order online from their gift registry.  This saves the hosts the task of packing up and transporting large packages from the ceremony.
  • Be their favorite guest by sending your RSVP right away.
