From the Slate at II Creeks blog:
Planning a wedding can be a stressful task for the bride and groom, but attending one can be just as stressful. Between saving the date, finding the perfect outfit and picking out a gift, there’s a lot that goes into being a guest at a wedding. There’s many different ways to go about giving that special gift. Some choose to be innovative with unique ideas, others try to satisfy the bride and groom’s wants by picking something off the registry. Here’s a few ideas to help make a decision:
Pick something off the registry: This is a tradition that you can’t go wrong with. The couple specifically picked out exactly what items they want, therefore you don’t run the risk of getting them something they are not interested in or don’t actually need. Sometimes the couple will list a more expensive item that they don’t anticipate anyone purchasing for them. Get creative and ask other wedding guests to chip in and share the cost of the item.
Luxury gifts: Between the cost of the wedding and honeymoon, some couples won’t have much money to spend on things that aren’t a necessity. This is a great opportunity to get creative and surprise them with thoughtful gifts. If you know where the couple is going on a honeymoon, pre-pay for a resort activity, or give them a gift card to 5-star restaurant. Another unique idea is to buy them VIP concert tickets to see one of their favorite bands perform. These are fun ideas they are bound to appreciate and remember you for.
Customized items: Making gifts personal and unique to the couple is always a good idea. Are they big wine drinkers? Purchase nice Bordeaux glasses that have their initials etched on them. You can even customize a nice picture frame with the date of their wedding, and include a check with the gift. These items will be memorable for years to come.
Regardless of what you decide to purchase for the bride and groom, always include a sentimental card with good wishes. It will be the perfect way to seal the gift and create a lasting impression that the couple will alway remember.
