How much should a bride spend on a bridesmaid gift?

The average cost of a wedding nowadays is $16,000 - $45,000 depending on your state.

Average cost of a wedding by state

Not only are wedding costs high and ever-rising, but the amount bridesmaids are spending is increasing as well.  

According to 2010 nationwide survey of more than 20,000 brides, the average bridesmaid can expect to spend a whopping $1,695 participating in the wedding.

With all of this money being spent, many experts recommend spending $75 to $150 per bridesmaid on a thoughtful gift.

If you look around online, you'll see the landscape is pretty divided on what brides actually spend. Some brides say they want to spend as much on a wedding gift as the bridesmaids spent on a dress, as much as $200 - $300 for a gift. Others focus more on the content and context of the gift, opting for DIY or hand made items that have a special meeting.
