    Hi brides to be!!

     

    Here are a couple of our favourite ideas for brides and grooms to give eachother (but can totally be used for your wedding parties as well) :)

     

    Gifts from Bride to Groom

     

    Traditional: a watch or set of cufflinks are as traditional as it comes. Add in a little personal touch by customizing the cufflinks to match his wedding band, favourite sports team or initials and wedding date. White Truffle, a shop found on Etsy, has some amazing cufflinks that you can customize for your special man.

     

    Practical: Last Name Change. If you have decided to take your soon to be hubby’s last name, why not turn this into his gift? Send him a special note or picture of yourself holding up a sign that says “Future Mrs…”

     

    Unique: “His day” on your honeymoon! Surprise your guy with a special event/day trip while on your honeymoon that he’d be super into. Since the focal point of the wedding day is really on the bride, it is nice to be able to take a day and celebrate him with his own personal day right after the wedding. Whether it’s a special snorkeling trip, tickets to a game, dinner at the best bbq place around, do what you think he would love! He will love you for it J

     

    Gifts from Groom to Bride

     

    Traditional: Jewelry…what girl doesn’t love jewelry as a gift? A set of diamond earrings to match her engagement ring is a classic choice. For a more personal touch, think about a charm bracelet with a charm that has some significance to your first date, engagement or other meaningful event the two of you have shared.

     

    Practical: Massage appointment – book your wife to be a personal massage at the location she will be at the morning of her wedding. Have the masseuse show up and surprise her. She will be so relaxed and ready to walk down that aisle to you!

     

    Unique: A right hand ring- find an antique ring (whether from a store, or something that has been in either of your families that you have touched up to fit her style) with a blue stone. This way, the your bride will have something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue all in one gift.

    These are just a few of our favourite ideas. We would love to hear your suggestions below as what you think would make a great wedding gift, or what you have given!

     

    Happy Planning!

      Thought I would post pictures of what we got for the Bridal Party since they all loved their gifts!! Unfortunately I didn't take any actual pictures of their gifts before wrapping them up and giving them out.

       

      Bridesmaids each got:

       

      Vera Bradley weekender bag- They all used this as their carry on! (Got each of them a different pattern!)

       

       

      Tote bag personalized with their name on it (some used it as a beach bag!) These were from Etsy seller

       

       

      Also got them each flip flops and their wedding jewelry! (Necklace & earrings)

      *

       

       

      For my sister (my MOH) I gave her a necklace that belonged to my grandmother who passed a few years back. She loved wearing BIG jewelry and the colors of the necklace matched my wedding perfectly!

      *

       

       

      The groomsmen each got:

       

      Oakley Sunglasses! They were the flak jacket style. They looked SO good on each of them! (These also looked great in wedding pictures!)

        Almost forgot! Also for my bridesmaids:

         

        Cover-ups! We used these to get ready in the day of the wedding!

          I love the Vera Bradley weekender bag idea! I might have to change my mind about my bridesmaids gifts. I was thinking about buying them an excursion or pay for their hair and makeup the day of the wedding, but if I were a bridesmaid I would MUCH rather have a cute bag to keep!

              Not sure if you girls have any Vera Bradley outlets near you but I purchased these bags on Black Friday weekend last year and the entire store is 40% off all weekend! It was definitely worth the hour trip for me and the crazy line!

                Thanks for the advice! I'll start my search for an outlet store within driving distance!

                      Dzaccaria, the bag is lovely.  That is a great idea, as well as the coverups!
