By the time your wedding day rolls around, with everything planned and triple checked, I expect there aren’t many surprises left in store for your bride. But I think I may have come up with five ways to take her breath away all over again!
1. Give her jewellery on your wedding day
Create an extra special memory for the day with a surprise gift on the morning of your wedding to remind your bride she’s always on your mind. Bonus points if you can get it to a bridesmaid without her knowing, to pass on while she’s transforming from fiancé to bride. It will be a last-minute gift, she’ll treasure forever.
2. Serenade her
Nothing says “I do” like an impromptu ‘Unchained Melody’ serenade to your bride-to-be in front of your nearest and dearest. If you’re not a singer, all the more power to you! Take a lesson or two in preparation and that in itself will say more than any “for richer or for poorer”; it’s non-budgeted money she’ll be glad you spent!
3. Give absentees a shining moment
Keep a close eye on your RSVPs, find out who can’t be there and reach out to them ahead of the wedding to contribute something special to the day. It might be a telegram, a reading, a video message or a toast – absence makes the heart grow fonder and your bride will never forget you going the extra mile to ensure as many loved ones as possible could be part of your day.
4. Remind her she’s heaven-scent
People can detect at least one trillion distinct scents – make your bride feel like one in a trillion by giving her a personalised perfume to wear on your wedding day. Love nose no bounds (pardon the pun!) – so book a personalised perfume consultation with the best to ensure your specially made scent evokes only the loveliest of memories in 60 years time!
5. Shoe her you care
This one’s so simple you’ll kick yourself for not thinking of it before now! You know how your bride-to-be has that favourite pair of shoes that, come midnight, just don’t seem to fit on her feet anymore? Well, her wedding shoes will presumably be like that – only higher and more uncomfortable! Remind her that you’ll always be there to catch her with a pair of flats at the reception – she’ll never, ever forget it.
