When you are going to attend a wedding, perhaps one of the first questions that come to your mind is about the gift you should give to the wedding couple. And at this point, not only you but many other people are confused. Either they cannot decide whether the couple would like their gift or they are confused about the budget to set for the gift or any such difficulty may arise in their mind. In such a condition, I feel that nothing can beat antiques as wedding gifts. They are beautiful and unique, and have a character of their own. Even if your budget is small and so, you spend a little on them, they look high-valued, and please your recipient. Antiques can be used in daily life, or can be only ornamental. In both the cases, they look great. So, antiques are ideal wedding gifts.
I know a great antique shop having a fabulous collection of superb antiques. It’s DecorativeCollective.com. I would like to share some tips regarding which antiques you can use as wedding gifts from this online antique marketplace, because their collection is quite comprehensive and the examples can be applied to any situation.
As said earlier, antiques can be only ornamental or can be used in daily life. And if latter is the case, it is even more pleasurable. Imagine, how exciting it is to use an antique! You can gift an antique mirror to the bride which she can use while getting ready for the parties. Or you can gift a Chinese wedding basket which can be used for storing literally anything.
Antique furniture pieces are also ideal for gifting, because you don’t have to think whether they will match the other furniture in the wedding couple’s home. An antique furniture piece never looks out of place! Plus, while being used it gets the status of an ornament too. Here you can see some antique furniture like an inlaid table, Mouseman stools, George IV Scottish Burr Elm breakfast table and. There are many more. I couldn’t resist myself from giving the fantastic English Burr Elm Bureau too which has walnut interior. So also, there is a large late Victorian oak desk chair. Do you think that the wedding couple won’t like these pieces or they will look out-of-place in their home? On the contrary, they will fall for them!
You need not give only furniture pieces. There are many other useful items, like jewelry, candlestick holder, French soup tureens, lamped marble flambeaux, French white glazed confit pots, bread basket, champagne buckets and many more. Your recipient bride will be excited to use your gift in her kitchen or drawing room.
Antique ornamental items have always a unique value just because of their antiquity. In addition, you don’t have to think much what to gift, because you don’t have to see the latest trend. Antique showpieces and curios always look trendy because they are timeless! You can choose from myriads of beautiful options like table decorations, bronzes, wall pieces, pendants, and many more.
With antiques, you get daunted only because you feel like buying all of them, unlike when you go through the modern gifts and don’t like them for some or the other reason and so, get daunted because you don’t feel like buying anything! A wedding is just the appropriate occasion for gifting antiques because the wedding couple needs nice items to make their home look beautiful, and antiques are perfect for that. So, next time if you feel confused about what to gift a wedding couple, think upon gifting a fabulous antique.
