The Ultimate Guide: Buying the Perfect Wedding Present

Buying a wedding gift can be quite daunting. You have to pick something that will appeal to the taste of the marrying couple. After all, you don’t want your ‘precious’ gift to be thrown in the closet or basement collecting dust. Choco Studio is a wedding photographer in San Francisco with years of experience in the wedding business. Following are some of our top tips for buying a perfect present for a newly married couple.

Get in their shoes

The best way to decide on a wedding gift is to think what the couple would like to have. If they already have a wedding gift registry, your work will be much simpler. However, you can always surprise them by gifting something they would actually love to have in their life but hadn’t thought about before.

Focus on usefulness

A couple about to make a fresh beginning needs things that will be useful in their everyday life. This is the reason why casual household items such as artistic dining sets, classic white dishes or bath towel-sets, etc. hardly ever lose their charm.

United we stand

Not sure if you can afford that elegant mahogany kitchen shelf as a wedding gift? Why not join hands with someone and purchase an expensive and unique gift together instead of buying some cheap left-over item off the registry?

Add a personal touch

You can connect your gift with some happy memory you share with the bride or groom. Add a collage of photographs of the time spent with them or of the place they first met. An artistic monogram of the couple’s initials is another great way to add a personal touch to your gift.
