Nowadays, it’s common for guests to bring a gift to an engagement party, but it’s usually something small and sentimental. Don’t feel pressured to give an elaborate or expensive gift. If you wish to bring a gift, you can, but bring it to the gathering itself.
Thereof, what is an appropriate money gift for an engagement party?
Aim for the engagement party gift to be around one-quarter to one-third the cost of the wedding gift.
Similarly one may ask, what is the groom’s family supposed to pay for?
Tradition dictates that the groom’s family pays for the full cost of the rehearsal dinner, even though the bride’s family and friends attend the event as well. That includes food, drink, venue fees, entertainment, and transportation. Often the groom’s family cherishes this responsibility.
