We have all been witness to those adorable wedding photos where the Bride opens a sentimental gift from her soon-to-be husband, or watch the Groom get a little choked up by his Bride who pens him a love letter on the Big Day. Those are such precious and treasured moments! Here at Little Bird, we love helping couples come up with great gifts for each other - and they don't have to be expensive! Here are a few of our favourite ideas that are not hard on your bank account!
Your love story is what you got you to this moment. We love when one of the partners takes the time to take a trip down memory lane, and all the important moments that led you to the most important day of your life so far. Nothing is more pure than expressing to each other all the reasons you fell in love in a note, or even creating a customized book, such as the ones found on LoveBook.
Perhaps your proposal took place at a spot close to your heart, or was created in the most spectacular way! If you had someone there taking photos for that moment, framing your favourite photo such as these adorable photos by Flytographer, accompanied with a special tribute to your journey as an engaged couple is the perfect gift for each other. This is also something that can hang in your home, for years to come!
This is something that can be done at home, or by a professional. Before you get started with making this happen, be sure to have a clear vision in mind - What do you want to say, and how do you want to say it? This could be a little glimpse into your love story up until your wedding day, and can describe goals and aspirations for your life together going forward. Plus, this is a gift that can one day be shown to your children - so cute!
You don't have to spend big money to make a big impact on the Big Day! Be sure to let your photographers know if you are exchanging gifts, and if you would like for them to capture these moments for you.
