Do the Bride & Groom Buy Each Other Wedding Gifts?

Save

A lot of couples don't realize it's a tradition to buy each other a gift when they get married. Make the gifts part of your wedding budget so you both agree on how much to spend on them.

Significance

  • The couple exchange gifts to commemorate the special occasion, to show their love for each other and to celebrate their new life together.

Tradition

  • Jewelry for the bride is one traditional gift, such as a pearl necklace or earrings, while a watch or a pair of cuff links is a common gift for the groom.

Benefits

  • Buying a present is a thoughtful gesture that can help the marriage get off to a good start, and by using or wearing the present, you show you appreciate the gesture your spouse made for you.

Sentimental

  • Purchasing a gift that has sentimental meaning for both will likely go over better than one that's expensive.

Warning

  • Check with each other if you want to uphold this tradition. You don't want any hurt feelings if one person buys a gift and the other doesn't.

Presentation

  • The couple can exchange gifts whenever they prefer, be it in private, the morning of the wedding, during the reception or while they're on their honeymoon.
