Whether your best friend, sister or college roommate is getting married, you definitely want to step up and help her feel special during this amazing time in her life.
Conversely, if you’re the groom-to-be, you might think about ways to give your blushing bride something more personal. Something that will be sweet and special to her keeping her smiling through all the wedding planning and preparations. Especially when stress runs high, as it sometimes does.
But no matter your relation to the bride — she’s certainly oh-so-special. You may want to go outside the registry to find the best gifts to show your thrill and excitement for her upcoming big day. In need of some inspiration? Here are four creative bridal gift ideas.
1. A Spa Day Gift Certificate
Being a bride is hard work for those most passionate about making the day incredibly special. After all, brides plan for one wedding in their lifetime, so they want to do it right. That means they might put themselves under tremendous pressure to make their wedding perfect, which can weigh heavily on their shoulders.
Regardless of how the bride is feeling leading up to her day, treating her to a relaxing and rejuvenating spa day will make her feel like a whole new woman. Leave the scheduled date open-ended, but encourage the bride-to-be to take advantage before her wedding day to get pampered.
If you want to give her a full day of pampering and treatment — and possibly include her mom, sister or best friend — go in with a few of your friends to buy her and a guest or two the full menu of services, such as a body massage, manicure, pedicure and facial.
2. Branded Bride Merchandise
You’ve seen all the specially branded champagne flutes and napkins at weddings. Why wait? Start by adding the “Mrs.” prefix to everything to get her used to the idea. For fun, just use “The Mrs.” to get everyone into the spirit to enjoy a fun and upbeat wedding together. But you can certainly add her future surname to the mix to make it more special. These are mementos she can keep forever and possibly gifts that she can use regularly, such as a coffee mug, smartphone protector, sticky notes, stationery and so much more.
3. Bridal Lingerie
What would a wedding night be without bridal lingerie inspiring romance and so much more? Don’t worry; the bride will love having as many beautiful options as possible. She might not know some companies specialize in bridal-themed and bridal-designed lingerie, but you can help her out and give her a lacy romance bra set with a garter, a sassy satin robe, or a bridal teddy set. Anyone attending the bridal shower or bachelorette party, even her husband-to-be, is welcome to give the bride something special to wear on her big day.
4. Bridal Jewelry
You know how the old wedding rhyme goes: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” And you can fit jewelry in there somewhere, finding a necklace or bracelet that suits the bride and the occasion. Alternatively, you can give her a family heirloom, especially if you’re a close family member or her fiancé. You can even buy her something she mentioned she’d love to wear while walking down the aisle.
The Bride Will Appreciate Knowing How Much Care You Took in Choosing Her Gift
Everyone wants to do something special for the bride in their life. Hopefully, one of these gift ideas will make it easier for you to find the right thing. Ensuring she has beautiful jewelry, fun and lighthearted personalized merchandise, a way to relax and rejuvenate, and something special to wear for the wedding night are all gift ideas that will support a beautiful day for her and her groom.
