I am making charms of my grandma and granddad to put on my bouquet. How old is your brother? If he is young, anything to make him feel really grown up would be good. I suck at guys gifts, sorry. I think I’m getting my dad a hanky, because he is probably going to cry, and actually uses them all the time

@Vettieb:  I don’t think you can ask people who don’t know your brother about a personal gift for him. I think it should be to do with something he cares about. What are his hobbies? 

Also, another bride suggested this and I think it’s a great way to remeber your dad: have an empty chair at the ceremony where he would have sat, if you’re in a church and there are pews then maybe ask people to leave a space or make a little ‘in loving memory’ sign. I think it’s a good way to symbolise that even though your dad couldn’t be there on your wedding day, you’re still thinking of him.

@BridieBea:  That is a beautiful idea!

I’m having the same problem. My brother isn’t walking me down the isle but he has been a huge help with all of the wedding planning and tasks and I want to get him something special too. Guys are so hard to shop for.

But in a more ‘wedding’ style

Let your brother light it after you guys get down the aisle

What about giving him something long lasting and classy?  Perhaps a watch, a pocket watch, cufflinks, something like that?  No idea what your budget looks like, so those can fall all across the spectrum.

Would he appreciate a framed photo of you two (and/or the rest of your family?)
