Gift For The Bride From Mother

by Jane
(Wilmington, DE)

I have been searching for some information on what type of gift I, as the mother of the bride, should give to my daughter? I can only find information on mother of the bride gifts.

Shouldn't I give her a special gift (if there are no family heirlooms to pass down to her on this day)? I was thinking pearl necklace or a small diamond earring?

And if I do this, do I also have to get a separate gift for the groom? I am planning on giving them a money gift together.

Our Thoughts

Giving your daughter a special gift on her wedding day is a very thoughtful thing to do. As you mentioned, it is common for a family heirloom to be passed down from mother to daughter.

If you don’t have anything to pass down, this may be a great opportunity for you to start a tradition by giving your daughter something she can pass down to her children one day.

Jewelry, like pearls or diamonds, always makes a lovely gift, and it is something that she can wear for the rest of her life or until she is ready to pass it down.

Giving a separate gift to the groom is not necessary. You could certainly give him a gift if you really wanted to, but there is no etiquette that states that you should give him an extra gift.

To Your Wedding!
