The morning of your wedding day can be a bit of whirlwind. It can be equal parts exciting and nervous and is often an emotional rollercoaster. But it’s hardly surprising; it’s the day you and your husband or wife to be have planned and looked forward to for many months or years. It’s a day you’ll both have put lots of thought, time, effort and energy into and when the realisation hits that the wedding day is actually ‘today,’ it can be almost hard to believe.
You’ll also be very busy; from hair to makeup, to flowers arriving and suits to be put on, to photos and more, it can be hard to find a small moment to gather you thoughts. So the tradition of sending your partner a small gift on the morning of the wedding is both a romantic and thoughtful gesture and one you will be very grateful for. The gift doesn’t have to be anything massively expensive or extravagant either, instead something personal, heartfelt and funny is often the best choice.
Here’s just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing. If you’d like to chat about any aspect of your wedding day, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch
For the Bride
Jewellery is always a safe bet when it comes to a gift from the groom. It doesn’t have to be hugely expensive, just something small and heartfelt. Think about perhaps a fun MRS necklace, or sparkly earrings with a cute note attached.
Going to the effort to have something personalised, is always much appreciated and the morning of your wedding is no exception. Think about an engraved locket or bracelet. What about a fun embroidered wedding robe? A leather embossed passport cover or travel wallet for the honeymoon, or just a handwritten note! Be sure to have your waterproof mascara on!
For something a little different why not present her with that pair of designer shoes she’s always wanted and she can bring them on the honeymoon! Send champagne, or a little goody box filled with treats. Or why not write a message on the sole of her wedding day shoes that she’ll see on the morning before she puts them on! Or for something very emotional, a heartfelt notebook with reasons why you love your bride-to-be is ideal.
For The Groom
Classics like cufflinks, watches or even a hipflask are all ideal little presents for the morning of the wedding and can make great photo opps as well. You can personalise these sorts of gifts too for an extra special touch.
A pocket watch with a personal inscription on the back is a super thoughtful groom gift, especially if perhaps there is a pocket watch in the family that might have belonged to a grandfather. A leather monogrammed travel wallet or passport cover for the honeymoon is another great one or why not engrave the inside of his wedding ring as a surprise – it could be something funny like ‘put me back on,’ to make him laugh whenever he has to take it off!
If he’s and adrenalin junkie why not surprise him with a bungee jump or skydive voucher for your honeymoon? Or why not surprise him with a small note stitched on the back of his tie that he’ll only see on the morning of the wedding as he gets ready! Also don’t forget the little funny gifts like ‘just in case you get cold feet’ socks, or the groom/hubby boxers.
