Wedding Gift Ideas - Make It Special

Aug 17, 2007
Weddings are becoming more and more expensive with more and more accessories and introductions to the traditional style. Planning a wedding can be as thrilling as the day itself, planning the dress, the food, the cake, the venue and all the wedding gift ideas can be fun and fulfilling.

Traditionally gifts are given to the bridesmaids and pageboys however more and more couples are also putting together wonderful wedding gift ideas for the parents to show their appreciation for all the help they have given and to welcome them to the family.

If you are looking for gifts that are for the parents of both the bride and groom it is probably best to try and find something unique and special, something they will treasure. These types of gifts do not have to be expensive they just need to be meaningful.

A hand written poem or special note is something that is personal and individual, if poetry is not your thing then you can always find someone to write this for you. There are many places on the internet where you can provide personal information about who you want the poem written for and they will create a personal poem customised for the person you choose in mind.

Usually the bridesmaids will receive a piece of jewelry however there are many wedding gift ideas you could choose from. Try to match the gift with the theme of the wedding, for example, if you have a beach wedding you could present your bridesmaids with a beach towel or a book to read after the event.

If you are a guest and are looking for wedding gift ideas for the bride and groom, first check if they have a wedding list, this is a list of all the gifts they would like so that they do not end up with 10 toasters or kettles. If you are looking for more personal wedding gift ideas for the couple, depending on your relationship to the couple about to be married the choices could be endless.

A bride once told me the best gift she ever received on her wedding day was on from her head bridesmaid (this is usually the brides best friend) she had made a scrapbook of all the times they have spent together from school up to the hen night, filling the book with photos and quotes really made it personal and special.

Who ever your wedding gift is for it is worth taking the time to look around to find something suitable, there are many resources available including magazines, the internet can also provide you with a huge selection of wedding gift ideas, both traditional and personal

Remember to set yourself a budget, once you start to look it is easy to get carried away and spend a lot more money than you had intended, although what ever the cost the feeling of giving someone a special gift is priceless.
