Wedding Gift Ideas


As wedding season is here and I’m always interested in creative and original ideas to give to the bride and groom for wedding presents, I thought I would share a few neat gifts we received.  We received tons of wonderful gifts and of course lots of things from our registries, but these are a few that did not come from our registries and that I had never seen done before.


This is a beautiful tray that has our Save the Date printed on it.  It is so original and I couldn’t get over what I great idea it was.  It is from a company called Marye-Kelley out of Houston.  They decoupage just about anything you can think of and have wonderful gift ideas on their site.

These are two different lamps we received as gifts.  Again, this was not on our registry;  but who can’t always use another great lamp.  I thought these were beautiful.  The one on the left comes from Orient Expressed in New Orleans and the other from Judy’s at the Rink.


This was a really fun idea from Uncommon Goods.  It’s personalized with our names, wedding date, and our first dance song. {Our song was actually Ain’t that A Kick in the Head by Dean Martin}  There are a lot of great personalization gifts and fun ideas on this website too.



  We had someone take our wedding invitation which is shown below and send it to Judy’s at the Rink in New Orleans and they engraved it in the Lucite tray that you see below.  I was fascinated by this gift.  You see wedding invitations framed and things like that, but I had never seen one done like this.  I just loved it!  What a great keepsake.wedding gift ideas 005

I absolutely love this.  My aunt owns an art gallery in New Orleans so we were very lucky to get such a nice gift but it has a lot of meaning too.  This picture was painted of the French Quarter and more specifically, Arnauds Restaurant, where we had our Rehearsal Dinner.  You can find more of Meredith Keith’s work here at my Aunt’s art gallery.

Below is a monogrammed door bell! How gorgeous is that???  I love it.  They knew that we would soon be building a house and came up with this thoughtful gift.  I’ve never seen one like it.  Unfortunately, I can not find a website or contact information for the designer of this doorbell.  It is by Rae Rae Miller and it came from Mobile, AL.  Please let me know if you can find any information on them.

I love the gorgeous candlestick from Orient Expressed in New Orleans and the painting of a bride by Lynette Collins Walker.  It was so wonderful to get great gifts for around the house.  Things like art, lamps and candles are something I can always use in our home.

I hope some of these gifts gave you some great ideas for your next wedding.  I loved sharing our gifts and wish that I could share them all because they truly were spectacular.  I got so many great entertaining items and am ready to throw my first summer bash with all of my fun new gifts!
