Should Couples Expect Wedding Gifts?

Your Two Cents: Should Couples Expect Wedding Gifts?

Wedding etiquette is remarkably touchy and unfortunately complex in some social circles. Some of the tension is centered in the gift-giving ritual, which is a way for guests to help the couple complete their home together.

According to a survey by market research company GfK, 90 percent of people who attended weddings in the past two years said they bought gifts, while just 28 percent of couples said they expected to receive them. Some respondents suggested it's rude to assume guests will give gifts, while others don't think it's fair to the couple if a gift isn't given.
