Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is the groom supposed to get the bride a gift?

The groom is not required to get the bride a gift. And because a couple may already have to spend a lot on the wedding and honeymoon, buying and exchanging gifts might create extra burdens. However, giving your future wife something meaningful will make her the happiest bride on earth. Some of her friends might even get jealous!

But speak to your bride and ask her if you plan to exchange gifts. You might want to avoid making her feel guilty for not getting you anything. So you should discuss and decide together.

2. What is the best gift for the bride?

There is no definite answer. The gift a groom can give his bride can vary from a note to a small present, as long as it reflects his love and affection for his future wife. So you can write a nice heartfelt note, get her a personalized gift, or do both!

As for the gift, first, focus on finding a sentimental present. If you like, you can add a naughty fun item like custom-picked lingerie saying ‘Mrs–‘ and ‘I’m Yours’ (an idea from a Reddit user).

3. When should the bride and groom do the gift exchange?

You can exchange gifts when it fits your schedule. Many couples give each other presents before the ceremony or after the first look. Or if you plan not to see each other until walking down the aisle, you can have your gifts delivered separately to your getting-ready rooms.

4. What else should the groom do for the bride on the wedding day?

Apart from preparing a gift for the bride, the groom might want to support by taking on the mental load of some morning tasks on the wedding day. That will give the bride a more relaxing morning and allow her to enjoy the present!


That concludes our list of the sweetest, most thoughtful wedding gifts that you can give your bride on the big day. We hope our article is helpful and will inspire you.
