June has snuck up out of nowhere and wedding season is well and truly upon us. I’ve already been to two this year and one of my friends has a whopping 11 weddings to attend in 2016. As a guest, weddings are lovely and fun occasions but there’s a lot to think about. What to wear? How to get there? Hat or fascinator? And very important – what to get the happy couple as a gift? Having just tied the knot last year, one of the best things about the wedding were all the wonderful gifts I (sorry, we) received afterwards. Many couples opt for gift lists, honeymoon fund donations or simply ask for cold, hard cash. However, sometimes guests are given free rein or if (and only if) you know the couple well enough, you might consider going off-list.
So back to the question – what to get? Of course, you could play it safe, but if you want to go for something a bit off-piste, here are some ideas for a truly memorable, unique gift.
