JEWELRY

Jewelry is a classic wedding day gift for a reason. But it’s important to find the right piece. A good rule of thumb for special-occasion jewelry is to find a nicer version of something the recipient would ordinarily wear. If they never wear bracelets or pearls, a pearl bracelet might not be the best choice. On the other hand, if they wear fun earrings often, find a pretty pair that are made with natural stones and high quality metal, like these earrings Anna received on her big day.

 

A FUN GETTING READY OUTFIT

Is your bride the type to make do with what she has rather than splurging on something for herself? Treat her to a special outfit to wear while getting ready on the wedding day! A cute robe, cozy slippers, and a bottle of champagne or sparkling water will make her feel like the VIP she is. And if you really want to make her day, arrange for a nice breakfast spread so she has something to eat during her busy morning.

CUSTOM HANDKERCHIEF

Not only is a handkerchief a small yet special keepsake, it’s a very practical item to carry on an emotional day. It can also serve as your something blue, like this one Brittany’s mom gave to Brittany on her wedding day!

 

A FAMILY HEIRLOOM

Weddings are all about two families becoming one, so it’s only fitting to gift something that belongs to your family. Maybe you don’t have a crystal vase like the one Kristina received on her wedding day. But do you have something made by your grandmother or something your parents received for their wedding? Don’t be afraid to think outside the box to find special items to welcome her into your family.

 

FUN BRIDE ACCESSORIES

Is your bride’s vibe more fun and casual? Get her all the bride swag, like this Best Day Ever tote and heart-shaped sunglasses. If you’re a pragmatist, it may seem silly to buy something she’ll only wear once. But if she’s had “bride” shirts saved on Pinterest for years, take the hint and make her dreams come true!

 

CUSTOM DENIM JACKET

What if you love the idea of special apparel but want something with more longevity? We recommend something like the floral denim jackets Sydney gifted to her bridesmaids. Your bride’s jacket will always remind her of her wedding day, while being something she can wear for many years to come!

 

HEARTFELT LETTER

If your bride values sentiment over stuff, don’t sweat the fancy gifts. A heartfelt letter from you will be the greatest gift you can give her. We’ve seen many a bride (and groom) brought to tears by a sweet wedding day letter. If you’re not sure what to write, start by telling her how excited you are and how much you love her. She’ll treasure your words more than anything else.

Still looking for a unique gift idea for the bride? Don’t worry about getting it perfect. The key to any wedding day gift is to find something memorable and special that the recipient wouldn’t purchase for themselves. Even the simplest of items can become meaningful, because they remind you of your special day.
