Sure, your wedding day is your big day, but that doesn’t mean you won’t want to acknowledge the many special people that made the day possible. Providing thoughtful gifts to these significant people on your wedding day is a great way to both honor these special people’s presence on such a momentous occasion, and to thank them for the overall support they have provided to you throughout your life. If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed at what to get and give, though, we’ve got you covered. There are lots of great gift options for the significant people in your life, from your parents and your bridesmaids, to your favorite pooch!
Honor Your Parents with Meaningful Mementos
For many couples, it is their parents that they are most concerned with honoring on the wedding day. A beautiful, engraved or handpainted frame is one sentimental way to let them know how much they mean to you, perhaps filled with a favorite photo of you all together, to be filled with a beautiful wedding picture after your big day.
A necklace or bracelet with your initials, birthstones, or another special memento is another great option for mom, while dad might enjoy a new pair of engraved cufflinks, or even an embroidered handkerchief or tie.
Don’t Forget Your Bridal Party’s Presents
From something they can wear on the wedding day, like a fine piece of jewelry for the bridesmaids and neckties or watches for the guys, or even a shawl for an outdoor wedding, to something they can use, like customized wine glasses or travel mugs for the girls, or personalized flasks for the groomsmen… think about what your bridal party would appreciate and enjoy, and try to customize the gifts to each of their personalities as much as possible.
Toys, especially ones that could be quietly enjoyed during the reception, are great options for flower girls and ring bearers. Stuffed animals, coloring books and crayons or markers are just a few examples. In fact, why not create an entire box, bag or basket filled with age appropriate goodies that will also serve to entertain these young guests as you dance the night away.
Also, if your fur babies will be involved in the wedding and reception, don’t forget to gift them something special as well, whether it’s a new toy, a special treat, or even a new suit, bowtie, etc.
