I hope this is the right board for my question. I’m just curious, and since I’m from Scandinavia and English is not my first language, it’s not clear to me. So, if you are a wedding guest and want your gift to cover the board, what is included in the said board? Is it just the food? Food and drinks? Also the venue? What about decorations? Or is it the whole cost of the wedding divided by the number of guests? Please tell me!

Your plate and booze, plus a little but for a gift typically. So, say $50ish for dinner, $30ish for drinks, $20ish for buffer. About $100 or more per person. But it varies regionally.

I’ve never heard the term used that way. Only Room & Board (not wedding related) or cover your plate for weddings.

@AB Bride: You are absolutely right, I have no idea where the word board came from! I definitely meant plate. Huh, weird.
Thanks so much for all who have answered!
