Let’s talk about frugal wedding gift ideas.
It’s June, which means that long white dresses, flower bouquets and wedding cakes are in the air. Well, let’s hope not literally! While I’m at a such an age that most of my friends got married (ahem) a few years ago, we are still invited to at least one wedding a summer. And I still cry. Sniff.
There’s not the taboo in France that I remember there being in the US in regards to cash presents. Here it is more than acceptable to give cash to the happy couple, and most people don’t even bother with a small ‘token’ gift to go along with the enveloppe. The other traditional gift is a plant- flowering or no-, but something that will keep on growing (we hope), just like the couple’s love will keep on growing (even more hope).
I like giving cash, because I feel like the money will be used to buy something the recipients really want. And I love giving plants mostly because we got so many beautiful ones for our own wedding.
