Think Practical

It's been said countless times that if you want your gift to be appreciated, choose something that is practical or those that can be used every day.

Don't purchase something that  you wouldn't want to receive yourself.

Make It Personal

Every member of your entourage most likely has varying tastes and interests based on their unique personalities. So, it's imperative that you make sure that your gifts are tailored to their specific interests. Giving them the same gift is probably not a good idea. Take the extra time to find gifts that symbolize how much they mean to you.

Set a Realistic Budget

Let’s face it: weddings can be a little expensive. And if you aren't careful enough, you will go over the budget without you even realizing it until it’s too late. Talk with your spouse-to-be and come up with a price range that you are willing to spend on gifts for the entire wedding party.

Additionally, having a set budget will also help you narrow down your search. That'll give you more time to attend to other wedding planning issues.
