Ever wonder why we give guests a gift for attending a wedding?
The answer dates back to the 1600s
Ever wonder why we give guests a gift for attending a wedding? Seems a bit odd doesn't it? I mean you've just forked out a small fortune to host this spectacular wedding reception to celebrate your marriage, why should you spend any more on gifts? Surely the $100 per head 3 course dinner you've provided for them is enough, right? Well in my research of wedding traditions, the answer lies in what people believed to help with the vitality of the party.
