Looking for a little something to give your other half on the wedding morning to the let them know you’re thinking of them? From a simple handwritten note to the lyrics of your first dance song as a piece of pretty wall art, we’ve rounded up 20 sweet, touching or funny wedding day gift ideas for brides and grooms…

  •  A simple heartfelt letter penned on the days running up to your Big Day will forever remind you of how you felt at this precious time. If you’re not one for words, a pre-recorded video would be just as sweet.
  • Frame a picture of you both! We love the below frame from Debenhams.
  • Have the lyrics of your first dance song made in to a pretty piece of wall art that you can hang in your home to remind you of this happy day!
