It’s officially wedding season! Invitations have been flooding in for months and while you’ve been desperately trying to sort out what to wear, there’s something else you might be forgetting… wedding gifts!
While the happy couple tend to make a gift registry, it’s nice to get them something more personal and luxurious, especially if it’s your best friend or relative tying the knot. Stray away from the traditional gravy boat or fancy plates, and go for something more memorable. Below are five jewellery wedding gift ideas that will make the happy couple even happier!
From the Parents: Personalised jewellery
So your son or daughter is getting married! It is a big and happy day for your family - one that will never be forgotten and cherished forever. To mark such a special occasion, personalised jewellery is the perfect gift to give the bride or groom. Personalised jewellery is thoughtful, meaningful and something that the receiver will treasure for years to come. Pick a design that they will wear often, like a necklace or bracelet. Engrave it with the names of the happy couples, and if it allows it, the date of their wedding. This gift will mean a lot to them and is an extra reminder of their special day - apart from the pictures and wedding rings!
From the Wedding Party: Honeymoon jewels
So you’ve been invited as a guest to a wedding. Jewellery is a fabulous gift to give someone, whether you’re close to the couple or a plus one. Jewellery is worn on a daily basis and therefore, won’t go to waste. Find out where the couple are going on their honeymoon and pick jewellery for the occasion. This is a great way to gift jewellery at a wedding and can be worn time and time again on other holidays. Pick jewels that would look perfect for a beach destination, like golden hues and shell accents. If it’s a ski holiday, choose from silver tones and statement studs. For a city escape, pick architectural bracelets and colourful designs.
From the Grandparents: Statement gemstones
So your grandchild is tying the knot. As a child, your granddaughter or grandson must have played dress up with your jewellery box. As an experienced jewellery wearer with enviable style, it only seems right to gift them gorgeous gemstones. Every jewellery lover needs pearls in their jewellery box or a pair of gemstone earrings, so give the bride her jewellery essentials. Alternatively, reinvent your jewels into a custom made design for the bride or groom. This is personal, vintage and classic, as well as something they will cherish forever and eventually pass down to their grandchildren.
From the Bridesmaids: Charm bracelet
So your best friend is getting married. You’ve been helping with the wedding, spending quality time with your bestie before she gets hitched. Team up with the bridesmaids and give her a charm bracelet - the perfect symbol of friendship. Fill the bracelet up with charms that symbolise your friendship and special things about her, like her birthstone and hobbies.
From the Groomsmen: Cufflinks
So you’re the best man. You organised the stag do, went with him for his suit fitting and now you’re standing next to him at the top of the aisle. Give him a wedding gift that is stylish, suave and sophisticated, like a pair of cufflinks. Cufflinks are a great gift as they are so versatile. They can be worn to jazz up a casual look, to complete a smart office outfit or for his wedding day! Pick from classic designs, quirky pieces or a unique pair which perfectly captures his personality.
