Christmas is only a couple weeks away and if you’re notorious for leaving it last minute, these 10 wedding planning gift ideas might be your saving grace!
1. Wedding Planner Book
A wedding planner book is a great keepsake and a perfect way to stay organised. Filled with useful sections and planning tools, wedding planning books help your loved one think systematically about the tasks ahead.
2. Digital Notebook
A high-tech way of keeping notes together in one place. I just love this digital notebook from Remarkable. It’s an organisers dream! The device allows you to handwrite or type your notes out. It’s much easier to carry around when visiting venues instead of a paper notebook and you can also organise them into folders meaning nothing gets misplaced or lost.
3. Customised Gifts
Customised gifts are incredibly thoughtful. Items you could consider include personalised prosecco glasses, dressing gowns, make up bags, pens or even a special handkerchief for those happy tears. Those are just a few ideas for personalised gifts but Etsy and Not on the High Street are online stores that offer a great selection of bespoke gifts for you to consider.
4. A Contribution to the Wedding
If you know them well enough, you could gift them something they want but don’t necessarily need for their wedding day. This could be a musician performing a bespoke song request, or something less expensive like a manicure ahead of the big day.
5. Tailor-made Perfume
Distinct smells can bring back many fond memories. Like the smell of fresh cut grass symbolising the start of spring, or the scent of frankincense reminding you of Christmas. Create your own signature scent for them to wear on their wedding day so they can bring back those distinct memories for years to come. You can even go one step further and get your bottle engraved for a nice touch.
6. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
Help them out with these known wedding traditions. Depending on who’s buying the gift, might determine which part you buy for. For example, if you are a parent or guardian, perhaps you would want to offer something old or something borrowed. Whether that’s a family heirloom, fabric from your own wedding dress or vintage cufflinks. If, however, you are the partner or friend buying, you might opt for something new, or something blue such as a piece of jewellery or garter?
7. Wedding Garter Phone Holder
On the topic of wedding garters, you could gift a pocket garter that stores a mirror, phone, lipstick or other necessity that the Bride can’t live without? Carrying around a phone in your hand is not a good look and as it’s not common for the Bride to carry a handbag, this
8. Adjustable Shoes
It’s difficult to decide whether to wear heels or flats for your wedding day so adjustable shoes might be the best bet! These shoes from Mime Et Moi are just spectacular!
9. Tickets For a Wedding Show
Scope out your area for local wedding shows. They are fantastic for seeing an array of suppliers and vendors products and services all under one roof. There’s The Westpoint Wedding Extravaganza coming up in March which might be a good choice.
10. Wedding Planning Consultation
Finally, why not purchase a Wedding Planning Consultation voucher with Kept Weddings? Or book a Coordinator for the wedding day?
