Etiquette Wedding Wednesday

Q: This year I’ve been invited to two coworkers’ weddings. I just don’t have the money to cover the presents as well as the new dresses and shoes and transportation. Can I say no without hurting anyone’s feelings?

A: Declining to attend doesn’t absolve you from buying a gift. It’s customary to give a present to any couple who invites you to their wedding and reception. The amount you spend is based on your affection for your friends and your budget, not on attendance. Maybe there are ways to make these weddings affordable. Do you really need new dresses? Could you carpool to the wedding? If you decide not to go, don’t feel guilty. Just decline as graciously as you can.
