What knowledge I’ve picked up about wedding etiquette is gathered from Miss Manners type sites, and has holes. Please help me fill a gap.
I’ve been invited to a wedding of people I don’t know as my boyfriend’s date (a “+1” invite). My boyfriend was in turn invited as part of an invitation to his family (parents and two siblings) but it was confirmed by the bride and groom that he and each of his brothers has a date invite as well.
What’s the rule about gifts with this kind of invitation? If it was a married couple getting one invitation it would make sense to have one present, but what about a family invitation where the “kids” are adults, where there are other adults as dates, and so on? I was figuring on offering to chip in with a family present if there is one, but would people normally be expected to each bring a separate gift, or for each couple to bring one?
