Your wedding day is one of the most important days of yours and your partner's lives, which is why most participate in the long-standing tradition of exchanging personal wedding gifts.
But, many grooms find themselves struggling to find just the right gift for their bride-to-be.
Ephraim Doumato Jewelers offers expert advice and ideas.
It goes without saying that every bride wants her wedding day to be the most special day of her life.
"I think it's a good idea for a groom to have a gift for his bride. You know, to show him that he's thinking of her and you know how much he loves her and cares about her. Um and wants her to be happy on the wedding day," Matt Doumato of Ephraim Doumato said.
But, the fact is, many grooms find themselves at a loss when it comes to wedding planning. And so is picking out this gift.
"You know they wake up the day before the wedding or two days before the wedding and say, 'Oh I've got to get a gift.' And so they've come in and they really don't know what to do and they don't have a direction."
For those guys, Matt has some advice.
"I think that if they come in well in advance. Take some time. Nowadays, you know, if they're sitting at home and she's on her iPad or the computer and she happens to show him something that she likes. And he gets some ideas. He doesn't have to buy exactly what she's saying, but just to, you know, feed off those ideas and come in and try to make a good decision."
Help her remember this special day. The best way to do that is with something timeless.
"There are a few different ideas. The best one I think is diamonds, obviously. Diamond stud earrings, a diamond necklace. Something simple. It doesn't have to be you know, fancy or made or cost thousands of dollars. But it can be you know, something subtle and tasteful."
Nowaday, it's not that common for brides to wear their mother's wedding dress. But, their mother's pearls are another story. Give her a gift that can be passed on generation after generation
"Pearl necklace, pearl earrings. Even a set of you know bracelet, or necklace that she can wear on the wedding day. That will look good, it'll match the dress, it won't overstate it, you know, it's kinda subtle, it's just a really nice touch."
Chances are, your bride will swoon over a vintage-inspired look.
"Girls want that, the earrings that look antique, um or a necklace, uh um, pearls actually work well with that antique look. It gives it that old, style look."
Just be sure to give her something from the heart. Whatever you choose, your wedding day gift should be something she'll treasure for years to come.
So, make sure you carve out time to find the best gift for your bride-to-be.
