Advice on shopping for wedding gifts
Back in the day, there used to be hard and fast rules about buying wedding gifts. Today, those rules are a bit looser and allow the gift-giver more creativity, while still honoring long-held traditions. So, here’s some general advice. In today’s world it’s okay to veer off the registry, but etiquette experts recommend viewing the couple’s registry first, so you can get a feel for their needs. Our pros also advise shipping your gift to the newlyweds about two weeks before the wedding - this makes their big day less chaotic. And never stress about the cost of a wedding gift. It truly is the thought that counts, and don’t forget that here at Bed Bath & Beyond we have a large selection of wonderful gifts to fit a wide range of budgets.
