What should I get for my bride on our wedding day? I don’t want to spend a fortune (I already did that with her rings), something under $500, preferably under $250, but I’m trying to be realistic. She is very traditional, but I really have no idea what she expects or wants. I’ve been successful so far in getting her gifts, I just don’t want to give her a bad gift and then mess up her day. She has very nice perfume, jewelry, and accessories already chosen for the wedding day. Any suggestions would be great.

you may want to start by having a conversation about what each of you would like. That way you would have some ideas. You could also go the sentimental route and so something cute……

Its so sweet that you’re going to get her a gift for her wedding day! I think something sentimental that she’ll be able to keep forever and maybe pass down to your kids. Perhaps a locket that she could fill with a photo of you two from your wedding day later? She might not wear it during the wedding, but it would be a nice lasting gift.

If she’s traditional, jewelry is tradition. Pearl or diamond (although the latter is probably way pricier) earrings perhaps, something simple she may be able to wear on the wedding day?

It is so funny you mention the Tiffany’s Charm bracelet. I was in there today looking at that. I just felt like it was a little impersonal, but I didn’t think to get in engraved. =) Do you think she’ll like that?

I think it’s so sweet that you’re trying to find a good present for you!
I personally would love to get jewelry (even if I already had some picked out for the wedding…I could never have too much jewelry!).
But what about just writing her a love note to let her know how excited you are to be marrying her? I think that would mean more to me than any gift my Fiance could buy!

What about a beautiful holder for her engagement and wedding rings?

I agree with a bracelet, necklace or watch that you can get the wedding date engraved onto would be lovely!
You are such a sweet FI!!!!!!!
I also love that you put I am a guy in the title 🙂

maybe a revamped photo of you to or better yet you could make a scrapbook of your love with pictures an write memories in it. That would be sentiamental make her cry and is not that exspensive.

WOW! Thanks for being such a great guy! The bracelet with a personal engraved message would be great! Send her a love letter and flowers in the morning before she starts her day and give the gift at a different time during the day.

I like the engraved charm bracelet idea…and also the handwritten note. Also, if you want to go the economical route….get her some token that will remind her of your first date or of when you proposed. Something to make her laugh and/or cry tears of joy and feel closer to you before you meet at the altar.
