What a great, thoughtful idea!  Hmmm… just a few things that came to mind.  I have no idea what price range you are considering, so throwing in anything I thought of:

  • A gift certificate to a restaurant with a note telling her that no matter how stressful and busy wedding planning gets, never to forget to date and enjoy her FI!  (DH and I learned that we had to have no wedding talk allowed dates to reconnect when the wedding craziness was getting to be too much.)
  • A list of websites and other resources you have found helpful.  I really wish I had known about weddingbee a lot earlier in the planning process!
  • A notebook or binder to keep all of her notes, info sheets, contracts, etc. in.

If I think of more, I’ll add later!  Love, love, love that you’re doing this! Laughing

you are so sweet! instead of buying the bridal magazines, i suggest buying “The Wedding Book” — it has the 1,2,3 and A, B, C,’s of everything wedding related!

much more useful than bridal magazines, maybe homemade coupons of “let’s go try on dresses” date/”trial hair/makeup” day, “DIY wedding project helper”, or a certificate to test out the spa/salon you guys can get mani/pedi’s at on the wedding day,

Get her a gift certificate for a manicure so she can show off her new ring with nice nails!

If you do get bridal magazines I suggest either Real Simple or Martha Stewart because they are both really good!Also, hair magazines are like $10 so she might not buy one for herself but that could be a perfect thing to give her!

I like the coupon idea and I would also add in to them “free hang out with ME” because I know I have just wanted to hang out with my Maid/Matron of Honor without having to talk about weddings!!!
