What was your most favorite bridal gift?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I'm trying to put together something special for a good friend of mine who just got engaged. Her engagement party is August 23rd and I have decided to make a wagon (using a child's toy wagon) filled with exciting bridal stuff.

 

So I am trying to come up with ideas of stuff to put in it. They can be little things or big things. Basically I want to know what was some of your favorite stuff that you got either at your bridal shower, wedding, engagment party, or just any old gift.

 

I want to do really, really cute things. Money is not a factor, I'm going to go all out so please let me know any cute ideas.

 

I've already ordered the wagon (its pink) and a wedding planner book. Plus I ordered two books "Something Borrowed" and "Something Blue" to throw in there. I will probably get her a monogrammed "soon to be" hoodie but I need more stuff. Any ideas?

Glenda - get her a cute ring holder - that is the BEST engagement gift IMHO.

i am such a loon i have 3 of these - i have this one on my nightstand by my bed...

Bed Bath & Beyond Product

 

this one in my kitchen next to the sink (but in a green)

Etsy :: Dirtgirlpottery :: Blue Stoneware Ringholder

 

and a silver elephant one in my bathroom (i can't find a pic - it is a cheap-y one anyway)

 

if you don't like those, search "ring holder" and you will find a bunch by Lenox and Waterford - those are nice too just not my taste.

 

I think this is the best gift b/c every girl needs a special place to put her new bling wink.gif

agreed - good call alyssa about the ring holder.

 

a good friend of mine recently got engaged and she and i are going to have the same last initial when we are both married, so i got us matching "Mrs. H" totes from land's end - it was like $25 plus shipping. she LOVED it.

Glenda...

My fav gift was from my mom at my shower: She had taken my wedding invitation and gotten it framed in a gorgeous thick silver frame with about 4 different mattings and a neat band of silver kind of studs around it. It's hanging on my wall already...just love it, and so creative.

Oooh that is really cute but unfortunately she doesn't have a wedding invitation yet b/c she hasn't even picked a date or location. LOl. But I will def keep this in mind for her shower.

I also used to get all my friends the Tiffany's heart keychain with their new initials and wedding date engraved but since she doesn't have a wedding date yet I can't do that.

Hmmm...thanks for the ring holder idea Alyssa and Maura I def have to check these out.

oooh I just remembered...Ana (from the forum) was so sweet and sent me a little goodie bag before the wedding and it had this lip goss in it. It is sooooo cute....when you turn it over it makes the bride and BM's do something special...and that part comes off and can be hooked on your keychain. I loved the gloss as well....and even wore it that wedding day :)

If she is thinking of having a DW I would get her the Knot Destination Wedding Book it is my bible my bf got for me and it was the best gift...A monogrammed bath robe is cute (and takes up room)...and champange flutes are a traditional gift

    • Hi Kiara, Glad you are here. There will be no shortage of answers and suggestions here. First of all tell me, are you planning to have a grand destination wedding? I want you to figure out with these questions for better understanding- 1. What you want? 2. What you don't want? 3. How big is your guest list? There are so many factors that will come into play. If you want to make it grand then I would personally suggest you to take wedding loans bad credit. If you have a good credit score then cheers! That may be a go to step to finance your wedding." 
    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
