Hi I am thinking of buying for my bride on our wedding day:

Good idea or not?

Also should I put our real names or pet names. We use our pet names a lot in cards and over text. Just not sure they would be right for this? Help?

I think it's a lovely idea. I think pet names are a great idea.

Can you perhaps have a secret chat with her mum/a bridesmaid to double check it is her style? In the strictest confidence.

DH and I swapped gifts on our wedding day and it is a wonderful thing to do.

Thanks for the advice. I posted on another forum and someone said real names!! Any chance of a few answers from people as I am really not sure.

Real names if other people can see them.

How about this as another option. She can have a leaf from her bouquet preserved in silver and you could get pet names and the date engraved on the back.

It's lovely and a nice idea.
I think I'd go with real names rather than pet names.

It's lovely!

I think it should be real names as it looks like the names could be on show.

Real names if on show
