PreGifting is a new crowdfunding site specifically designed to allow guests to pay for a couple’s dream wedding.

It seems… awkward? But it does make quite a bit of sense.
According to the Brides American Wedding Study 2016, the average wedding in the United States costs $26,522. That’s a lot of money. A lot of money a lot of couples don’t have. But regardless of their finances, a lot of couples still want that dream wedding.
So with PreGifting, instead of registering for a crockpot, couples can register for the wedding itself.
You create a free profile on the site, which generates a campaign link that can be shared with your wedding guests. They can then send a PreGift that, as the site’s ‘About Us’ section says, “will help the happy couple’s dreams come true”. At the end of the crowdfunding campaign, the couple receives a check.
