haha…no, seriously though.

Snacks, water, maybe some sparking cider for a fun drink to have, candles, chocolates. Super cute idea!

Our hotel set us up with some sparkling cider (neither of us drink), chocolates, some bubbles for the jacuzzi tub, and these adorable little guys. We absolutely loved it! 

It’s so sweet of you to do this for your friend!

For our wedding, my best friend did the same thing (really awesome gift, by the way). The bridal party asked the hotel staff for flameless candles (ya know, the batter operated kind?), and they had 10 on hand. So our suite was decorated with the flameless candles, flower petals leading from the door to the bed, and bubble bath in the bathtub (I wondered why my BFF just had to get to Bath and Body Works haha). 

Additionally, they had snacks, bottles of water and soda, and candy. I do like the strawberries and whipped cream idea, too πŸ™‚

@weddingnerd:  Someone to get my out of my dress faster than Darling Husband so I could GO TO SLEEP.


Darling Husband stayed in the room the night before our wedding and got ready there before… it would have been nice if he’d let the maids come in to CLEAN *GRRR*


But other than that I didn’t feel like we needed anything.  Maybe snacks πŸ™‚

Aww you’re such a good friend! I say make sure there’s food in case they didn’t get a chance to eat.

@PacificMrs:  Love those guys. We have a travel duck who comes on all our holidays with us….people got used to seeing him. Now we have a Team GB duck, duck soap, two flashing duck pirates, duck cakes, oh and some venetian glass ducks!


OP – what a lovely gift. Fiance is arranging our first night, im hoping he inlcudes chocolates, bubbles and maybe some mood music for a nice long shared bath in the morning.

Water and Snacks!  We devoured the chocolate covered strawberries that were waiting for us.  I would have loved some hot food, though! πŸ™‚

I say no sexual stuff, most of the storied I’ve heard are: we way were too tired on our wedding night to have sex.


If it were me, I’d love to find:


good chocolates


something to drink, maybe like a fizzy juice since no alcohol?

bubble bath

couple of magazines

Depending on what shoes she’s wearing, possibly majorly fluffy slippers.  My feet felt like they were on fire as soon as I took off the shoes.

Not married yet, but I hear bride & groom are usually starving after the reception so I’d say tons and tons of different snacks πŸ™‚

Love your breakfast idea too! I’m sure they will love this gift πŸ™‚

great idea!

my mom’s aunt started a tradition of giving the bride and groom a wedding night gift basket and every couple always looked forward to receiving it on their wedding day. unfortunately, she passed away a few years ago, but her kids and my mom (who was very close to her) have continued the tradition πŸ™‚

these are the things that were in our basket:

water bottles (they had little labels made with our picture on them)

little bottles of sparkling cider (dressed like a bride and groom, haha) w/ 2 glasses

wedding cake (we didn’t have time to eat the pieces that were served for us, so they took those off our plates and boxed them up)

beef jerky

fruit cups

vienna sausages

mixed nuts

cracker jacks

cookies (milanos and chessman)

cheese/cracker packs

goldfish crackers

tic tacs

hand sanitizer/wet ones

paper plates/napkins/eating utensils

we had so much stuff that our wedding night gift basket became our moving day basket (we moved just a few days after our wedding).

my cousin put together separate basket for me that included “sensual” bath gel (every time i smell it now i think of my wedding night), comfy socks (i highly recommend this- they felt like heaven on my aching feet), a loofah, and candle/lighter.
