Gone are the days of dowries, and live stock exchanges to mark a wedding day. Whew! One sweet and time honored traditions is the bride and groom gift exchange, and we have a few ideas for you.
These few stolen moments before the wedding are makings of sweet memories, and little gifts that will be cherished for the years ahead.
Couples find a way to exchange gifts, that is as unique as they are. Traditionally the couple finds a messenger, the best man or photographer (never to miss a photo op) to trade gifts before the couple sees each other. Some couples opt to have a first look before the ceremony, and find that time to exchange their sentiments – just make sure there are tissues on hand!
Of course, a private moment, where you enjoy each other without an audience is perfect for some couples. This could be the night before the big day.
