My mother still treasures her silverware she received on her wedding day from her great grandmother. She even takes it out and polishes it every wedding anniversary - even though she's no longer married to my father. It's sentimental, a reminder of that day, that incredibly special day she'd been dreaming of since she was a little girl.
Oh, the presents she would get! She had been filling her Hope Chest for years, since she was 12. But her wedding day would bring so many wonderful items she would use to decorate and modernise her new home with her new husband.
How times have changed! Do impending brides and grooms still look forward to a week long event of opening gifts as part of their wedding experience? Or, like most weddings I've been to lately, is their friends and families presence all the presents they need?
The really cool thing about weddings these days is the inventive, imaginative and perfectly AWESOME gifts and gift registries ideas that are changing the way we give to our beloved wedded friends.
What about a stunning, unique piece of art they can choose themselves...
Or put together a friendship collective and get them something super cool for their home - like a Wilson Dorset Shaggy Bag - OH YEAH!
Or give the gift of giving itself and donate in their name to their favourite charity or cause...
The options these days are endless - you don't have to worry about how many toasters they'll get - just take a look below at some of the amazing options out there.
