Who is responsible for taking the wedding gifts from the reception?

QuestionWhose responsible for taking the wedding gifts from the reception? Since the wedding reception is hosted by the bride’s parents, would it be up to them to arrange for the wedding gifts to be taken to wherever the bride and groom want?

AnswerThe general rule of thumb is that the best man is responsible for making sure the wedding gifts are taken from the reception to wherever the bride and groom want them to be (e.g. at their new home) although it can also be supported by the maid of honour.

In today’s modern times however, it is also quite common for the bride and groom to determine who this person should be ( e.g. it may be a close friend or family member who can handle the responsibility of transporting all the gifts safely).
