Why is this bride so happy? Because her soon-to-be husband gave her JEWELRY! But, he already gave her a wedding ring, you ask, so why does he need to give her another gift? Well, this new trend and tradition that is making couples extra happy on their wedding day.
A sentimental card telling your new wife or husband how happy you are to be marrying her or him is such a perfect way to begin the celebration, don't you think?
Whatever you decide to give your spouse-to-be, be sure to include a heartfelt card with your gift, and plan the presentation of it all in advance. Arrange for your wedding coordinator, relative, or friend to give the card and gift to your bride or groom while getting ready for the first look photos or an hour before your ceremony. If you have photography and/or videography arranged before your ceremony, be sure to communicate to your professionals that you want the opening of the card and gift documented.

Jewelry or Accessories: Pearls are traditional for jewelry but not necessary. It's thoughtful to get a piece of jewelry that can be worn at the ceremony, such as a bracelet for the bride and cufflinks or engraved watch for the groom. Something like a charm bracelet or a locket is thoughtful and romantic.
