You guys have been sending us so many wonderful wedding questions — keep ’em coming! The latest popped up in our inbox this morning from Tony, a groom getting married in November. He wanted to buy a wedding watch for the bride as a wedding gift exchange present.
How sweet is that?!
He writes, “I want to make my bride feel special on our wedding day. She has a collection of watches so I want to get her a wedding watch to add to her collection. Does a wedding watch for the bride make a good gift? Do brides wear watches on the wedding day? What kind of style should I look for? Thank you.”
These are great questions, Tony, and thanks for writing! I think it’s sweet that you’re already thinking about surprising your bride with a gift on the wedding day. That is a very thoughtful gesture and since she is a watch “collector”, no doubt she will love a bride watch to add to it! Good idea.
Do Brides Wear Watches?
Many times, brides don’t necessarily wear a watch on the wedding day itself, simply because most watches aren’t fancy enough or could distract from her gown or other accessories. Not to worry though — the gift of a bride watch on her wedding day is an excellent one, even if that means she’s not wearing it on the day itself.
Wedding Watch Tradition
Simply put, the gift exchange on the morning of the wedding that sometimes takes place doesn’t have to be something he or she will wear immediately. (Note: in case you’re wondering, the gift exchange is optional. However, it is a fun way to surprise your soon-to-be spouse with a gift prior to seeing them at the ceremony and we recommend it — even a sweet hand-written card or letter makes a great present.)
Best Bridal Watches
What kind of watch should you buy for your bride? That is totally up to you and her own unique style, but there should be even a little element of “bride”-inspired in it i.e. hearts, white leather band, crystals, engraving on the watch face, etc.
Make it a little more personalized by wrapping it up in a nice gift box and attaching a card like this to it:
A gift box like this is a nice travel jewelry case you can surprise her with, in addition to the bridal watch. (Jewelry case by ConfettiMommaParty):
Tony, she’s going to love it!
