Here is an original wedding gift: two silver glasses that can be engraved. Each glass makes up half of a heart and fits perfectly with the other glass to form the whole.
Many couples today tend to register their wedding gift list at their favorite store. If the particular store in question does not offer all the items you are looking for, you may register at two or more stores. It's important to include items of all prices so that the list can accommodate everyone's budget.
You should give this list to a designated person, such as the bride's mother, the maid of honour, etc. He or she can let guests know which items on the list are still available. Not only will this greatly help guests find an appropriate wedding gift, but it will also help to prevent people from buying the same gift.
If you will be moving out of your parents' home after you are married, you can use this list to include items that you will need for your new home. This is a great way to help you start off with quality items that perfectly reflect your needs and personality.
If you have been living on your own for a while and already have most everyday household items, you can create a gift list that features specialized or more refined items that you would like to receive as a gift.
If the bride and groom have not registered at a store, and you're not sure what to buy them, do not hesitate to contact their parents or close friends for suggestions. If you still feel you need more inspiration, you can also browse through bridal magazines or visit jewelery stores and specialized gift boutiques.
