Amongst all the planning you’ve been doing you’ve found a few minutes to think of a gift for your intended on the big day. With all the decisions being made you may be drawing a blank slate when it comes to this one. Of course, think of all the personal jokes you relish in, maybe trips you’ve been on together or shared interests before looking at these ideas, because you might come up with something very neat and personal that way. We had one couple that gave each other personalized cowboy boots with the date of their event branded into the side of them. Such a sweet gesture for a couple that met at a local country music dance hall. Another bride gave her groom tickets to go see his favorite baseball team and put them in a big mug that had the teams logo on it. One other bride learned how to Flamenco dance for her new husband since he had been in a traditional dance group and right before the dancing started, she performed his favorite number, so remember, it doesn’t have to be an actual thing, but something that will touch their heart. Here are a few other ideas to get you going.
How do I love thee? You will spend a life time discovering all the little and big reasons you love your spouse, but for you wedding day, here are 9. Reasons I Love Stones, from Red Envelope, are etched with I love you on one side and 9 different reasons on the other. If they don’t have what you want to say, try making your own for that extra personal touch. Not only will it give you something to hold on to while the groom waits to see his bride, they could double as a sweet touch to the bride and groom’s table. And after the big day, you can put them in his pants pockets every now and then as a reminder of the day you both decided to share the rest of your lives together.
You toast at the wedding, but think of the lifetime of toasts you will share in your marriage. These engraved wine stoppers will remind you of your wedding day with each bottle of wine you open. These personalized bottle stoppers from Personalizationmall.com will remind you of those wedding toast every time you open a bottle of wine. Package it with your honey’s favorite wine to share at your first romantic home cooked dinner. You can engrave your initials, but if you engrave the date, he’ll never forget your anniversary.
