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 :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
