My sister is getting married next week (so anything that takes a while to get, ie personalised, is out) and I would like to get her a little something, something thoughtful and inexpensive. Inexpensive for 2 reasons, I don't have much cash and she has specifically said no gifts! But as a little background for you, our Mum won't be at the wedding because she died 9 years ago and I know she will miss her on the day, so i'd like to get her something that perhaps Mum would have got, but not exactly what Mum would've got because i'm not her mum, does that make sense? When I got married Mum gave me a garter, which I have passed on to my sister, and she also gave me one of those horseshoe things you get from eg Clintons (IYSWIM)
I really can't think of anything suitable so thought I'd ask on here to see if any of you have any inspiration!
thanks teaandhobnobs, I can't really think of anything. When i've spoken to her about things she always sounds like she's thought of everything
The only thing I did think was maybe a teeny broch (not sure that's spelt right? of a horseshoe or something else for good luck, that she can put inside her dress or in her bouquet maybe. Or the other thing a friends husband to be bought for her to wear was a locket bracelet with a picture of her mum and dad in, which was lovely. I could perhaps do that, although it wouldn't be cheap necessarily.
Could you get her a keepsake box? My sister gave me one (just a lovely storage box thingy with ribbon) and had put samples of our invites/order of service/copy of my dads speech etc in it. I then put some dried flowers from my bouquet, cards, thank you letters etc in it.
keepsake box would be a great idea, may get her that too,
but yes yes yes to the link to the brouquet pins (don't you just love pinterest?!) they are exactly what i was thinking for the horseshoe thing, my sis is going for a vintage type theme on a lot of things so would 'fit' well.
