Maid of Honor Gift FAQs
How Much Should You Spend on a Maid of Honor Gift?
According to The Knot, the exact price of a Maid of Honor gift isn’t as important as the thoughtfulness factor. That being said, it all depends on the wedding budget and on what the wedding party has put in financially, i.e., destination wedding travel, dresses, bachelorette party… Overall, between $75 – $100 is a safe bet for a gift that will tell your maid of honor how much you appreciate her help (1).
Does the Maid of Honor Give the Bride a Gift?
In addition to paying for dresses, travel, and bridal shower gifts, the maid of honor is still expected to give the bride a wedding gift. Whether something off of the wedding registry or a wedding envelope of cash or check, it is good manners for the maid of honor to make her gift offering on the bride’s wedding day (2).
What Does a Maid of Honor Pay For?
The Knot states that, in addition to planning the major events around a wedding and the wedding itself, the maid of honor is typically responsible for paying for and organizing the bridal shower.

How Do You Thank a Maid of Honor?
