Original Wedding Gifts

For today's Wedding Wednesday I would like to share some of the most original wedding presents we received. Although I loved every single gift we got off our registry (I mean, I did register for them after all)... we also got a couple really original, thoughtful presents I wanted to share.



1. A friend of mine organized flowers to be delivered to our house every month, for 6 months, on our monthly anniversary. (image via)

2. A very talented guest, Elise Bergman, who also made my bridesmaid dresses, made us cocktail napkins that matched our china.

3. We received a monogrammed cashmere blanket that we use every.single.day

4. A couple people gave us gift cards to some of our favorite restaurants around Chicago, which we will happily put to good use (holder via)

5. A custom bridal illustration from the one and only, Inslee that I got from my sisters. Such a special piece of art (this is just a peek, I'll be sharing the whole thing at a later date)

6. Another friend called the hotel we stayed at for our honeymoon and paid for us to get massages at the spa. It was such a special treat! (image by me)

  16. Well done, to Holly & Alex! I guess the right three couples are through to the final, although still think Jason is very lucky. With Alex gone, guess I'll be supporting Harry in the final!!

  17. Popular wedding websites such as CgeGifts.co.uk and bridal magazines such as Real Simple often provide wedding registry checklists for brides and grooms to help them brainstorm bridal gift registry ideas. These wedding registry checklists typically include items such as flatware, appliances, linens and other household goods.

  21. Well, handmade things are really the most effective gift to be bestowed to our dear one. It reflects the love and heart with the sweetness for the one WHO is special. Handmade gifts are preferred over traditional gift currently because these don't seem to be only considered as gift, however as the simplest way to specific feelings to somebody. I personally also adore Wedding gifts lots.
