Popping a bottle of bubbly is the traditional way to toast an engagement but new research has revealed that newly engaged couples are looking for something a bit different to mark the milestone.
A survey of 1,000 UK adults carried out by One4all found that 54% of people would prefer to receive cash or a gift card to use to help pay for their wedding.
While 22% would like to receive an experience which can be enjoyed as a couple such as a spa day and 16% would prefer a bottle of champagne.
Aoife Davey, the group marketing manager at One4all Gift Cards, commented: "Weddings are becoming increasingly cost prohibitive – not only due to inflation and increasingly lavish celebrations, but also due to the other costs in people’s lives, such as house deposits and mortgages – and so it is understandable that newly engaged British couples would want to receive monetary gifts from their friends and family to help pay for the big day, rather than a gift that they won’t use."
