We’re answering a new wedding advice question today! This question came in to our inbox from Sue, whose daughter is getting married in July. She wants to know some ideas for unique gifts for the bride from her mother. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline, I have a question about what gift to give my daughter who is getting married this summer (in July). I want to give her a beautiful gift to open on her wedding day but I am stumped on what to give her. Do you know any unique gift ideas for the bride from her mom? Also, when should I give the gift to her? Thanks!
Unique Gifts for the Bride from Her Mother
Hi, Sue! We’re happy to help with your question. While it is not mandatory for the mother of the bride to give a gift to the bride on her wedding day, many moms want to go above and give her a little something as a surprise. We see more day of wedding gifts becoming the norm, and we’re happy to help with some unique gifts for the bride from her mother. Here are some suggestions in a wide array of price ranges to help. And in response to your other question, we recommend giving the gift to the bride the morning of the wedding (while she is getting ready or immediately before the ceremony). Hope it helps!

One beutiful gift for the bride from her mom is a wristwatch, like this signature style from Nordgreen. I own one that is similar and I love the way it looks and feels, especially the vegan leather strap (it is so soft!) She will treasure the heirloom on her wedding day and for years to come.
