Grooms this one’s for you...
The morning of your wedding there will be a thousand things on your mind, the last thing you want to worry about is throwing together a last minute gift for your bride.
While most brides are familiar with customary rituals and traditions associated with a wedding, many grooms find themselves just going with the flow and are clueless when it comes to tasks that must be completed independently of the bride.
The giving of gifts between the bride and groom is a longstanding tradition but the gift itself can be far from traditional.
Remember: It’s the thought that counts (guys I promise we’re serious this time).
These days, weddings are incredibly expensive so the gift to your bride does not need to be extravagant, just something to show her your thinking about her and can’t wait to start your life together.
Traditionally the groom gives the bride a piece of jewelry as a gift, a strand of pearls is a great option for a timeless piece she will treasure forever.
Pearl earrings are another great and affordable option.
A simple bracelet or necklace with something meaningful inscribed.
Maybe a few words about how much you love her.
Give her something with her new initials to show her your excited to become a family.
If you want to follow a less traditional route, have a photographer secretly capture your proposal and then give her the photographs the day of your wedding.
If you and your bride are more of a comical couple, think of things that would make her laugh.
For example, have a blanket made of a picture of the two of you.
It can be something silly you can have in your living room for years to come.
Anything you have put thought and time into your bride will love.
Just remember to make it personal and meaningful, so please, no toasters or power tools.
