10 Wedding Gift Ideas

Going to the Chapel and we’re gonna get married…

In 2017, a best friend, favorite cousin, and close former coworker are all getting married, so needless to say, I’ll be in need of some great wedding gift ideas.

I’ve shared 10 bridal shower gift ideas and 10 engagement gift ideas before, and while those could definitely also work for the big day, I also thought it would be helpful to share some of my go-to wedding gifts. If I am a bridesmaid in the wedding or it is a close friend, I usually buy a gift for every occasion, even if I cannot attend, so I like having lots of bridal/wedding ideas on deck.

These are 10 unique wedding gift ideas I’ve found over the years—but am all ears for any of your go-tos as well!

If you want to commemorate the big day for the bride and groom, I love that this engraved invitation tray takes the text from the bride and groom’s invite saves it on a beautiful pewter tray. This kate spade Happily Ever After frame is also perfect for those stunning black and white wedding photos.

For those couples who love to imbibe, I love the look of these champagne coupe toasting glass and this personalized bottle opener wood sign.

If your friend is literally marrying her Instagram husband or into “doing it for the ‘gram,” these oversized kate spade Mr. and Mrs. balloons would look stunning during wedding day photoshoots.

For those couples who chose a really special venue for their big day, I love this custom wedding date necklace for the bride and this custom state heart print for the couple.

If all else fails, this 2.75 quart Le Creuset, wedding day candle, or a gift card for an Artifact Uprising Hard Cover book to commemorate the wedding are all home runs.
