Here`s How Much the Average Wedding Guest and Attendant Spend. The Knot 2017 Wedding Guest Study surveyed over 1,000 people to find out just how costly attending a wedding is. With wedding gifts, travel and attire, it`s no surprise that being a wedding guest can be one expensive honor—but just how expensive? For The Knot 2016 Wedding Guest Study, we surveyed over 1,000 people who`ve been a guest or attendant at a wedding in the past three years, and the findings are eye-opening. We found that the average guest spends $118 on the wedding gift, and wedding attendants are spending even more at $177, on average. (But remember, this number is an average, which means depending on where you`re attending each wedding, your spend could be higher or lower.) Plus, if you`re a member of the wedding party, you`re shelling out for a more expensive type of gift: 6 in 10 spent $500 or less on the bachelor/bachelorette party (including attire, drinks, meals, activities and party favors, and not including flights, accomodations or gifts). But on average, men spend more ($738) than women ($472). Find more of our guest and attendant stats below, coupled with tips on how to save. How to Rein in Spending on Wedding Gifts. Personal wedding websites remain the number one way couples share their gift registries with guests (83 percent). Official wedding registries continue to be the most popular place to select a gift to give the couple, with 37 percent of wedding guests and attendants purchasing a wedding gift directly from a registry. Cash and checks are also popular gift options, with nearly one-third (29 percent) of guests gifting either cash (21 percent) or writing a check (8 percent). One in 10 (10 percent) wedding guests and attendants provide the couple with a gift card as their wedding gift. Seven percent of guests contribute funds to the couple`s honeymoon as their wedding gift. And with the spirit of giving back on the wedding day on the rise, 1 percent of guests gift a charity contribution on behalf of the couple as their wedding gift.
