Thinking of practical gifts is a special trait in a gift-giver. If the bride and groom have a lot of gifts coming their way, think outside the box. These plastic cups can be used throughout the celebrations and remind everyone of their “bride” and “groom” status. Bedazzled names add to the fun of these tumblers that can hold any cold beverage. Picking up some coordinating napkins that say “family, friends and guests please use,” is very thoughtful and they can be used at a rehearsal dinner or day-after brunch. In this case, sneak these gifts to the bride and groom before the wedding so they can use them during.
An art piece to be cherished for years is this Life, A-Z wall sculpture.

This gift can be personalized A-Z for the special couple too.
