It's expensive to go to weddings...

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm not really venting but thinking about how much it has cost me to go to a wedding.  I bought a new shirt ($30), dress pants ($30), tank top ($17) and jewelry ($20) all from Dress Barn because it is the only place I seem to have luck in finding clothes that fit me right for events.  Thank goodness that sale associate snuck me a 20% off coupon.

Then, I purchased a ($38) dress shirt for the hubby, tie another ($18) and possibly dress pants...hopefully he won't need new shoes.

Okay, then a gift is needed right?  Another ($50)...blah!  And, is $50 too little???

Okay, thanks for reading all this...lol

Quoting Bmat:

$50 is fine depending on how well you know the couple and what the customs are in your area.

I'm glad you were able to find clothes you liked, and now you'll have them to wear for other dressy occasions.

The gift was in her budget. Screw "customs"
