8 Top Wedding Gift Ideas
for the Bride

With summer around the corner, we’ve been immersed in wedding season! With weekends filled with bridal showers, bachelorette parties and of course, the big day, we certainly have weddings on the mind. Last month we shared our favorite honeymoon must-haves and the best gift ideas for your bridesmaids. Today we’re focusing on the best wedding gift ideas for the bride. Who better to dish the details on what the bride really wants than a bride-to-be herself? We tapped Junior Associate Merchandiser and soon-to-be bride, Megan, to find out what gifts are perfect for the bride to use on her wedding day and beyond.
