The wedding day is finally almost here. You’ve made it this far, now just be sure to finish strong by getting your beautiful bride a wedding present. Although it may seem like you’ve already purchased a ton of gifts from the parents to the groomsmen, this one is important. So take some time to really think about this one. 

When it comes to gifts for the bride, there are many different options, from traditional to sentimental to functional. One of the more traditional items that grooms give their bride is jewelry — especially a pair of diamond earrings to accompany her engagement ring. If you do your research, you should be able to find a nice pair of diamond earrings without busting the bank. If diamonds aren't the answer, a nice set of pearl earrings, necklace, or bracelet may be in store.

If you prefer to steer clear of jewelry there are plenty of other gift options out there. For example, something sentimental might be nice. Think about something that means a lot to your bride, whether it’s family, a favorite pet, or a special memory that you both shared together. You could have a sentimental picture of family or a pet taken and framed, or if you already have a picture in mind, spend some time thinking about how to incorporate it into a very nice frame. If you’re short on cash, another option is to write her an emotional or meaningful note from the heart. Feeling more adventurous? You could even take the plunge and write your own wedding vows for the ceremony. You could also opt to get your bride something she can use — especially something that might come in handy on the honeymoon, such as Sexy nightgown. 

Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something your bride would truly enjoy. Remember that the wedding day will likely be chaotic and over in a flash, so make time during theday to take your bride aside and give her that special gift. She’ll never forget it.

Traditional Wedding Gifts for the Bride From the Groom:
In addition to receiving gifts from guests invited to their wedding, the bride and groom traditionally present each other with a wedding gift, either at the rehearsal dinner or just after the wedding, when they are on their way to the honeymoon. The groom has a few traditional options if a bride and groom exchange gifts the night before the wedding, he may want to give her something to wear during the ceremony the next day.
 A necklace, such as a string of pearls, is usually a safe, traditional pick. He could also give his bride to be a more personal piece of jewelry, such as something with her birthstone or a gemstone that complements the colors of the wedding. Another idea is a small pendant necklace with the wedding date engraved on it. If the bride is changing her name, he may consider giving her a charm necklace that features her new initials.
