A New Wedding Day Tradition

Celebrate the Day with a Pre-Ceremony Gift

You've bought the rings, and the big day is here. But before you walk down that aisle to start your life together, there's a little something special you might want to try.

Find a moment to sneak away while the wedding excitement is ramping up, and exchange gifts with your love — either together, or if you're waiting to see each other until the ceremony, enlist your wedding party to do the delivery.

This pre-ceremony gift, along with your handwritten note, will become almost as treasured as the rings you'll swap later in the day. So — what should that gift be? Here are a few ideas to inspire you.

Frame it Just Right

A go-to gift idea for your wedding day is an elegant picture frame or album for your wedding photos. Similarly, a photo pendant is an option you can always wear. Whatever you choose, find a gift that fits your style as a couple. To make it extra personal, you can have the gift engraved with your wedding date, your new last name, or a line from your wedding song.

A Shiny Surprise

Honor your love with a special piece of fine jewelry on your wedding day. Pearls and diamonds are some of the more traditional options when it comes to bridal jewelry. You can also think outside the box and go with a colored gemstone or pendant necklace.

Talk to her bridesmaids about what she might like. Perhaps she doesn't have her "something blue." This would be the perfect opportunity to give her a gift featuring a blue stone, like a sapphire. Zales has plenty of options for him and for her.

Don't Forget Your Friends

Of course they are the supporting cast on your big day, but that doesn't mean they should go without a gift! Thank your bridesmaids and groomsmen with a gorgeous gift of jewelry — one they can wear on the big day and enjoy for years after. Every time they wear it, they will remember your special day, your friendship, and what you mean to each other.
