I think its a sweet gift, I would love to receive it even if I didn’t know the person well.  Its just a thoughtful gift.  And that’s just one less thing she’ll have to handle later on. 

I really like that, I never saw it before now.  But my Mommy bought me a blue thong that says ‘I do’ so I’m covered.  But I will want to buy it for every new bride I know!

I love this idea.  I don’t think it is too personal at all, rather a very thoughtful gift. I would be thrilled if someone were to give me one!

I think this is an extremely thoughtful gift! I’d love to receive it! And, if I already had my something blue…this would just be an addition to it!

Do you mind me asking, where did you find this?  I’d love to buy one for myself, and a friend.

Thank you! I am going to order one for myself, and for a bridesmaid who is getting married next year 🙂

Hmmm. Fine line here. Personally, I would not want to receive one because then I would feel obligated to use it, and it really isn’t for me. I plan on donating the dress, and it is just not my style. I have no intention on doing the whole something old, something new. I would feel a little odd. In addition, even if I were following the tradition, I have something blue, so it would feel odd to have this as well.

On the other hand, I can totally see how this is awesome if you are into all of the wedding traditions.

So I would say give this as a gift only to people you know well and whose taste you know well. I would also include in the card that you would not be offended if it is not used, just to give the bride an out.

that’s really sweet and thoughtful! i’d be touched if someone gave it to me. they may not use it if they already have a something blue, but it’s still sweet!

Well, if you aren’t that close to the people, just doublecheck their new monograms.  Some people keep their middle name and some people move their maiden name to their middle name.  It’s a nice gift, though.

I would check the names, but not for the reason a previous poster suggested.  I am assuming the monogram is the join monogram (First Name 1 – Joint Married Name – First Name 2).  If there isn’t going to be a joint last name, then the gift may be a lil off.  Otherwise, I think its perfect.

I just ordered a set from the seller, except I ordered the ribbons instead.  That way, rather than the monogram, I put Lindsay and Fiance, December 31, 2010, and one for my friend too.  Now you don’t have to worry about a monogram.
