Gone are the days when a simple marriage ceremony was more common than the elaborate kind. Along with changing traditions, gifts from the bride to her groom is just one of the newest fads surrounding marriage. That’s right ladies, brides giving presents to their groom for their wedding day is becoming increasingly popular. He gave you the ring, now what do you give to him? While every groom is different, however, most fall into a few different categories. Here are a some tips to help you pick out the perfect gift for your guy:
The fashionably late groom: If your groom is perpetually late and could leave you waiting at the altar, a watch is an excellent gift. Watches can be a bit more expensive than most gifts but it is something that he can have forever and wear every day after the wedding. Watches are a wonderful option because they come in various colours, shapes, styles and sizes, so you can choose a watch that fits his personality. You can make the gift even more personal by getting the watch engraved with the date of the wedding or with a meaningful message.
The fun-loving groom: If your groom enjoys having a good time, get him something he can share with his favourite men. On the day of the wedding surprise your man and his groomsmen their favourite beer and present it in the form of a tiered cake. The men can drink their “cake” while getting ready for the big day.
The playful groom: If your groom loves a good surprise from his leading lady give him a sexy picture that is for his eyes only. Photographer Beverly Sutherland of Sutherland Photography says, “More brides are requesting photos in their lingerie before they put their wedding dress on as a keepsake gift to give their groom.” Your groom will be pleasantly surprised when he gets a glimpse of you before the big day.
Whether your groom is forgetful, fun-loving or mischievous you can get him the perfect gift that fits your budget and his personality.
