Sounds like a WONDERFUL and thoughtful gift (can tell you put your heart into it)

BUT to be really honest…

When it comes to Destination Weddings AND / OR a Bride who doesn’t Register a lot of time that is a cue / clue that the couple would much prefer a Monetary Gift (they didn’t say that, cause asking is most certainly RUDE)

So that is always an alternative.

BUT to be sure, as an Etiquette Snob around these parts…  I can tell you that a Boxed Gift is still appropriate… despite what some other Bees might tell you.

The rule of thumb is a Couple can invite you to a Wedding… but they cannot tell you (dicatate) what you bring.

Hope this helps,

I think your gift sounds wonderful & very personal. I’m sure they will love it! 


I’m a destination wedding bride who didn’t register and truly does not expect gifts (monetary or other wise) but we have been very thankful to anyone who has given us a gift and will be sending out nice thank yous after the wedding.
