Double Wedding Gifts
I am invited to a double wedding. Do I have to give them both a wedding gift?
How lucky of you to be invited! Double weddings are not that common. I was a bridesmaid in one at age 12 and coordinated another one a few years ago for two sisters. I wrote about the planning and etiquette of that double wedding in this post.
To answer your question, in a double wedding, there are guests who only know the one or both person of one couple (typically friends and co-workers) and there are guests who will know at least one person in both couples (typically family). Most double weddings are two sisters getting married and some guests will know the one sister and her groom and some will know both couples. Guests should give a gift to the couples they know personally. If you only know the groom or bride of one couple, you give a gift to that couple. If you know both brides (or grooms), you would give a gift to both couples.
