Whats her budget?  

If she is willing to drop a lot of cash on this gift… a Dyson?  A big Le Creuset dutch oven?  A Vitamix blender?

Ok not really a gift, but as a wedding gift I’ve asked my mum to pay for our wedding car. And as we will always have photos of it it’s a gift we will always have on view. Practical and special 🙂 were having a vintage car take us to the reception and we will have our picture taken with it when we arrive 🙂 

If there’s something yet to be paid for at the wedding ask if she is willing to pay 🙂

New bedspread to start the marriage?

Do you have a lawn or porch/deck? Grill? pots for nice plans on a porch, porch swing, lawn furniture or games like bocce ball

Wine fridge, new lamps or chandelier

Do you have hobbies you share? new tennis rackets, camping tent, etc.

@Miss Eagle:  My mom is getting me a Vitamix! I am so excited, and happy. I’ve been dying one for years, and I was concerned FI’s family/friends who don’t know me very well would think I was crazy for wanting a $500 blender!

Set of luggage? Patio furniture? New grill?  Depends on how much she wants to spend.

My mom got me a sewing maching for my bridal shower- not sure if that’s something you’d use or not…

What’s her budget? We are hoping our parents can chip in towards/cover the honeymoon. That would be fantastic!

Depends on her budget — I like everyone’s suggestions thus far.  I was gonna say help with the honeymoon costs — maybe she could pay for a particular tour you guys wanna do?  For example, I want to swim with dolphins on our honeymoon so bad and if someone booked that excursion so we could do something like that….I’d probably lose my marbles LOL. 

It’d be amazing!

Maybe have her get her something you can keep forever so you can always think of her and your wedding when you look at it (even start a tradition and make it family heirloom.)

Maybe a piece of art, a tray with your wedding invitation wording engraved on it. Like this:

She can get your invitation matted and framed really nice (a really nice professional framing job is around $250.) 

Or a nice piece of serve ware with your new couple monogram like this (from William Sonoma):

 

 

I adore sentimental and personalized gifts that mean a lot to both the giver and receiver. Congrats!
