For richer or poorer

Every time we hear the news or open a newspaper there's another story telling us more bad news about the credit crunch. If you're planning your wedding just now you've probably already witnessed the rising costs of wedding rings and honeymoon flights. Is it all doom and gloom or is there any good news?

Nearly Married Ltd., wedding gift list specialists, have researched the effect of the credit crunch on wedding gifts. This may be impacting on disposable income but so far it seems that it hasn't affected how much people are prepared to spend on their wedding gift. Average spend remains unchanged from last year. And guests do not seem to be delaying the purchase of their gift until the last possible moment. "There will always be some guests who like to purchase a wedding gift as soon as the list is available so that they get the widest choice to pick from and then there are others who will buy their gift closer to, or after, the event" say Nearly Married. "If guests are feeling the pinch from the credit crunch, our research shows that at present they are not spending any less or delaying their purchase".

Over recent years more and more couples have been using their wedding list as a way to raise money for charity, particularly for charities which are relevant to their immediate family. Will charities lose out because of the credit crunch? According to Nearly Married couples are still keen to help charities when they pick their wedding gifts, even if they're just mixing a few charity gifts with other gifts of money. And they don't expect this to change. "However, if the credit crunch deepens we may see gifts of money becoming even more popular choices for couples, but so far it hasn't had an impact on how much guests will spend on the gift itself" say Nearly Married.
