Silver for the Wedding
Posted on December 9th, 2013 by Administrator
For centuries silver gifts for the bride and groom have created family keepsakes and lifetimes of romantic memories. According to folklore, it is lucky if the wedding gift arriving first is made of silver. Gifts that blend tradition with everyday function and individuality are on many couples’ wedding wish lists. Consider giving a silver pitcher to be filled with a bouquet of flowers or a monogrammed silver tray to serve hors d’oeuvres or display perfume bottles.
Sculptural napkin rings or a silver bowl to be filled with candy or potpourri are functional and beautiful gift ideas. Miniature silver replicas of musical instruments, antique period furniture and animals also make affordable and desirable collectibles for future anniversaries. Of course, traditional silver gifts of flatware, serving items and candlesticks are always appropriate and appreciated.
A key ingredient in any wedding is the bridal party. Traditionally, each bridesmaid receives an identical gift, as do the ushers. Honor attendants are usually acknowledged with something a little more special. Again, silver can be the perfect choice. And of course, a sterling silver picture frame is the perfect item to elegantly display a wedding portrait throughout the years.
The introduction of the engravable silver tray as a replacement of the traditional guest book tray is something new to the wedding industry. Only recently has a engravable scribe become affordable that allows for a “guest book” to be signed by friends and family. This unique guest book becomes something a couple can display that is a cherished keepsake. Friends and family who sign the engravable silver guest book tray find is quite a conversation piece at the reception and something the wedding guest will remember about your special wedding day.
