Top 8 Wedding Day Gifts for the Bride

Do you have a bride-to-be on your gift list? Or, are you a bride-to-be and want a day-of wedding gift for yourself? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve gathered up eight of our favorite wedding day gifts the bride will love. When you’re shopping for a wedding day gift for the bride, keep in mind that there are many items she’s probably already purchased for herself. With that being said, an accessory like a dress sash, clutch purse, or jewelry to wear at the ceremony are more personal items, things she’ll want to pick out on her own. Our list of wedding day gifts include things she probably hasn’t purchased for herself or hasn’t thought of, all of which can commemorate the day. Read on to find out more… PLUS, win one of these amazing items (with a price tag of $136!) Enjoy!

Wedding Day Gifts for the Bride

1. Bride Tote

A bride tote is a great wedding gift idea! Plus, it can serve as a vessel for other gifts, too. Fill the tote with things she’ll love, like a bottle of champagne for toasting or a ‘wedding emergency kit’ (like this) or help her avoid six common high heel disasters, which we showed you yesterday.

2. New Monogram Necklace

Ooh — she’ll love to show off her new monogram after the “I Do” with a personalized monogram necklace.

3. Dress Hanger

Ah, the dress hanger! It’s a gift she probably won’t buy for herself but would love to have for those gown photos.

4. Lucky Sixpence

Get her the finishing touch of the ‘something old, something new’ adage: a lucky sixpence for her shoe! We’ve received over a dozen emails in the past month from brides asking where to buy a sixpence and we finally found one we love!

5. Knot Ring

A knot ring is commemorative of her wedding day; I love this style! I’d buy one for myself just because it’s so darn cute.

6. Robe

The Robe is one of the quintessential wedding day gifts for the bride. Why? She’ll be getting her hair done and will need something to wear that doesn’t mess her hair; a robe ties around the waist so putting on her dress is easy! Plus, if you find a robe that’s made of ultra sumptuous material, it will be a gift of luxury she’ll love on the wedding day – and beyond. This robe is by Doie.

7. Wedding Dress Handkerchief

A handkerchief is a keepsake gift she can use for happy tears. Plus, she can keep it close-at-hand by wrapping it around her bouquet and securing with a pin.

8. Bridal Wine Glass

One of our favorite ideas is a bridal wine glass with the bride’s portrait on it.

The bride would also love a wine glass with her wedding dress on it…
