Most brides to be prefer something off their registry. I mean, they picked everything out for a reason! Well, a few months ago I heard about this great idea on The Bert Show for a wedding shower gift and it's been in the back of my mind since then.
My cousin is getting married in October and I thought it was a perfect time to make this gift.
I purchased a gift card from Nordstrom (however, any department store will work). Then, I asked for perfume sample bottles from anyone that would give them to me. I wrapped each one up in a pretty glassine bag and added a flower.
On the card I wrote:
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Please use this gift card to purchase a new perfume to wear on your wedding day. Be sure to not wear it before so for years to come, every time you smell it, it will remind you of your special day!
It was a big hit at the shower and will definitely be my go to gift from now on!
