When it comes to spoiling the bride-to-be your life, it's always a good time to treat her!
Whether it's the moment she gets engaged, her bridal shower, holidays, birthdays, or even on her wedding day, there are so many ways you can pamper the bride-to-be. Practical, wedding-day essentials as well as luxurious gifts that she may not be able to afford herself make perfect presents for the bride in your life!
If you're the bride-to-be reading this: congratulations from us! What an exciting adventure you are embarking on. You found your person and it's time to celebrate your unending love. Every woman is different—some love being in the limelight and others aren’t used to it. Wherever you fall on this spectrum, embrace the attention and allow your friends and family to spoil and celebrate you. Trust us, they want to! They are just as excited as you are! One way to support your nearest and dearest is by creating a gift registry. This way, you can stay on top of gifts and ensure that what you are receiving is something you actually can use and love.
It can be easy to feel stuck when planning a present for your favorite lady but have no fear. We’ve written this blog as a way to gather inspiration and ideas for the top gifts that any bride-to-be would be gleaming with joy to receive!
Let's start with some etiquette!
When To Buy The Gifts?
So, when should you buy and send a wedding gift? If there is a bridal shower, this is the ideal time. Otherwise, it’s good practice to send your gift as close to the wedding day as possible, if you didn't choose to send it right after receiving the invitation. The goal is for the bride to have the gift before the wedding day.
If you end up leaving it to the last minute, don't worry too much. Even if your gift arrives after their big day, the bride will still be overjoyed to receive it.
While some people still bring gifts to the actual wedding, this practice is becoming less common, thanks to the popularity of online shopping, as more people are opting to have gifts shipped directly to the couple. However, if you do want to bring a gift to the wedding, make sure to check with the wedding party first to see if there's a designated gift table. You don't want your present to unintentionally stress out the bride on her special day!
Do I Get Separate Gifts For The Bride And The Wedding?
Traditionally, if you are invited to both the bridal shower and the wedding, it is customary to bring a gift to both events. It is important, however, that you do not feel obligated to spend more than you are comfortable with.
The best way to do this is to allocate a specific budget for each gift. If you are unsure about gift expectations, it is perfectly acceptable to politely ask the host for information about the bride's registry when you RSVP. In some cases, the host may have been instructed to discourage guests from bringing gifts, and she will provide you with that information!
