According to a new study, in 2016 wedding guests spent an average of $888 to attend a wedding, that number is much higher if they’re a bridesmaid or best man! Factors such as location of wedding, dress code and travel can affect the amount spent. With all that info, it makes sense to give guests something to say thank you and to remember your special day (all photos are courtesy of Pinterest for inspiration only).
