Lucky Charm Wedding Gift Ideas
‘Sharing a dream is life’s most valuable gift, that’s why everyone wishes you a very happy, wonderful life’
It is traditional to wish the happy couple lots of good luck, wealth, good health & of course the patter of tiny feet at some stage! As the bride you may have been dreaming about your special day walking down the aisle with the man of your dreams, the Church packed to the rafters with friends, family, loved ones. The planning may be meticulous but as everyone knows a little good fortune along the way always helps, so in our latest blog post we thought we would share a few wedding gift ideas with a good luck theme.
The traditional Wedding Garter Hen Night wedding gift for the Bride.
So let’s start from where the fun really begins …. The Hen Night!
A wedding garter is the ultimate good luck charm gift for the bride & is usually given to her by the Chief Bridesmaid. Bridal garters are big business; you will find a huge number of on-line retailers as well as a large number of High Street shops selling garters. Prices will of course vary but a quality handmade garter does not need to break the bank & in fact can prove to be a great value for money keepsake gift. With a little bit of canny internet searching you can find some gorgeous bridal garters, handmade in the UK for under £25.
To add that extra dash of special lucky for the bride on her wedding day you can buy a ring cushion with a sterling silver heart charm. This lovely little lucky charm can be engraved with the brides’ name, initials, perhaps her wedding date – it is up to you! This simple but elegant bridal ring cushion is handmade in the UK to order & costs less than £30 a real bargain we think.
A little bit of bloomin’ luck!
My gorgeous Mum walked down the aisle clutching her lucky wedding horseshoe – that was in June 1960 & 53 years later her marriage to my Dad is as strong as ever. I am not sure who gave her the horseshoe but it worked so thank you! Mum & Dad are going to guest star is a future blog post in which we will look at the bridal fashion in 1960 & compare it to some gorgeous vintage wedding accessories available today….. Watch this space!
Horseshoes are one of the ultimate charms & good luck gifts for the bride. There are a host of designs available to suit all wedding themes & styles from vintage to modern, shabby chic to traditional, so although the base product does not change the detailing can be tailored to suit.Personalising any wedding gift adds that extra magic & so here is a great idea to mix a lucky charm with the personal touch. Hand crafted wooden horseshoes are a less expensive option & have the added benefit of being available in a large range of colours & they have a gift tag for your special message too … this for under £23 that must be a bargain!
Charming by name, charm by nature!
And finally we thought we would add a couple of dainty little good luck wedding charms – they can be added to the brides’ garter, dress or wedding bouquet. Most wedding charms are presented in a keepsake box so that it can be lovingly stored away after the big day & perhaps eventually passed down to the next generation bride!
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
So there you have it – some great ideas for gifts for the Bride to bring her all the luck & magic that she deserves on her wedding day. Buying a bridal garter, wedding horseshoe , wedding ring cushion with a lucky charm or lucky wedding charm need not costs a fortune & anyway it is not the value but the thought that counts but if you can bag a bargain at the same time then win win!
