7. Polaroid Snap Touch Instant Print Digital Camera
If you’re getting married, the likelihood that you’re going on a honeymoon shortly is high. While you’ve probably hired someone to snap photos of your wedding day, that probably isn’t the case on your honeymoon and it would certainly be nice to have some good quality photos to capture those memories as well. This one provides immediate gratification, with the ability to print photos directly from your camera. Unlike a true polaroid camera, this gives you the best of both worlds as you can choose to print your photos or upload them digitally each time. You can also record high definition video and use a number of editing tools on your photos to make them even better. While the white is our favorite, especially for a bride, this camera is available in a variety of fun colors.
8. Custom Monogram Hanky
This handkerchief is another great idea for an affordable gift for any bride on her wedding day and something that will hold special sentiment for years to come. This white hankie has a crochet lace edge and can be embroidered in your choice of color. If you want this to serve as your bride’s “something blue” that color is a nice option. She can keep her hanky hidden behind her bouquet during the ceremony, and as a special memento after the big day.
9. 14k Gold Heart Locket Necklace with Diamond-Accent
Lockets are one of the most popular gifts for grooms to give brides on the morning of their wedding and it’s obvious why. Not only do they serve as a special and gorgeous piece of jewelry, but the photo kept inside can add so much thought and sentiment to an already gorgeous gift. This beautiful locket is made of 14k yellow gold with a genuine diamond accent and can hold two pictures. While the obvious choice is to fill it with two photos of the two of you, photos of grandparents or parents on their wedding day is also a lovely idea. You can browse other locket options here to find the perfect design for your bride-to-be.
10. I have loved you for… Art Print
Personalized artwork that hones in on a certain personal aspect of your relationship is a wonderful gift from any groom to his bride. Since the artwork is completely customizable, simply send your photos or words/phrases to the designer, await your proof (which is usually sent within 24 hours) and then they’ll be printed on high quality canvas and gallery wrapped using 18mm frame that can be hung as is. While the design it up to you, this one shows the exact number of minutes, hours, days, months, and years it has been since you first laid eyes on each other. It requires a little bit of math but is sure to impress.
