What about a picnic basket with wine, cheese, fruit, and other picnicky things with a couple of nice wine glasses, wine bottle opener, and dishes to put the food on and cutlery to eat it with and some fancy napkins. It would be something special that both her and her new husband could use and then reuse. You could also put a disposable camera in the basket, so they could take pictures of their day using it. And maybe a blanket for them to sit on.

have you seen the wine basket with poem for all the events throughout the marriage? try google and look up wine wedding poem and you get them different wines for different occassions throughout their lives. it’s so sweet. and it will mean more than any gift. i’d tell her too that if she needs any help setting up or taking down decor that you’d help. offer to help serve food if she needs it at her reception. take care of food for her in the bridal suite, and pack up all the stuff for her and take it to her place so it gets there safely.

i think its all the lil thngs that will show her you care. 🙂

What does your best friend like? Do something that would mean a lot to her. For one set of good friend/more like bro/sis, I was their photographer & I hand made them a photo album. Pics mean a lot to them. For another, I scrapbooked them an album of all the fun stuff we & they had done the past few years. She had been really wanting an album too & we always made them together (for other friends as gifts).

Do you know what aspect of her wedding means the most to her (aside from getting married, of course :). Some people go all out for their photographer, or for their food, or for flowers, etc. Do you know what that is for her?

Is there a tradition in her famiy that you know of?

Just do something for her that you think would mean something special coming from you. What do you girls do when you hang out together?

Maybe you could get her a little hankie with her new monogram embroidered on it… and/or organize a get-together just before the ceremony of her closest friends, and you can each give her a short toast, saying something personal about why you appreciate her as a friend or something like that. The fact that she offered to drive you around is a nice gesture… but I don’t think you need to pay for her wedding cake or anything like that! 

Also, don’t be so down on yourself for having not offered something to her yet, even though her wedding is first.  The fact that she is having her cake paid for by one of her friends and that she offered to drive you around as a “gift” leads me to believe that money is really tight with her.  Perhaps she is trying to clue you in to the fact that she doesn’t have any money to buy you a nice gift, so please don’t buy her something nice–no one wants to be in a situation where they receive a super generous gift but cannot turn around and reciprocate with an equal-valued gift.  I would just do something really thoughtful, something that makes her day special.

A basket of wine for a special pair – wrapped in all different colors for you both to share.

We hope that you are both always as happy as today. Please share this wine just the way that we say.

First, drink the champagne – the bottle all wrapped in lace – on your first married night in your new chosen place.

The silver one you must wait to unseal ’til you have your first guests over for a meal.

Love as you might, you’ll have your first fight… Drink the blue one while you make up all night.

The gold bottle is for Thanksgiving; to toast to the love-filled life you are living.

The winters in your hometown might get a bit cold, drink the white bottle during your first snowfall.

The green bottle’s for Christmas, so put up your tree, drape the ceilings in mistletoe and get tipsy

On January 1st, while sharing some kisses, drink the purple bottle to toast the New Year as Mr.


. and Mrs.


.

Drink the pink bottle, romantic and sweet, when it’s time for your newlywed Valentine’s treat.

And when your first year of marriage is done, drink the red bottle in honor of anniversaries to come.

Cheers to Bride and Groom on the start of their lives together – may this basket of wine symbolize the beginning of your forever.
