Guys – if you’re looking for a great gift idea for your wife, then look no further. This is a super sweet idea that she will absolutely adore. You’ll need to get some help from her family, but only after you swear them to secrecy. Here’s what you do:

Collect pictures of the bride’s family on their wedding day. They might include a sweet, vintage photo of her grandparents on their wedding day, a snapshot of her parents on their wedding day, professional pictures of her sister, etc. Then, purchase a scrapbook and attach each picture to a page, leaving the page beside it blank. Have the family members from the photos write a little message on the picture to your wife.

At the very end of the book, leave the page that will hold your wedding photo blank, or write “your wedding photo here” in the center of the page. On the blank page, write your own sweet message to your bride!

She will be able to place her favorite wedding photo in the blank spot and read all the loving messages from her family as she look at pictures of them on their wedding day. It’s a sentimental gift that she will absolutely adore.

Have you ever wondered what a man thinks about the wedding? The brides do most of the planning, and the men often just kind of get pulled along for the ride. We’ve asked several men what they think about weddings and what they believe to be the most important part. Here are their answers:

“I would probably say the most important part would be making sure my bride had everything she wanted. As long as she’s happy and gets the wedding she’s always dreamed of, I’ll be happy.” – Calvin, Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi

Groom Kissing His Bride's Cheek

“I think the vows would be the most important part. They’re more than just words. They’re promises that (hopefully) both will stick to throughout the marriage.” – Kodey, Sarnia, Canada

“Although I think the wedding ceremony will be very important, I love the idea of the reception. It’s when the whole family and our friends can celebrate and enjoy the beauty of the day. We’ll already be husband and wife and that will be our time to celebrate that.” – Mark, Charleston, West Virginia

“Being with my future wife. I don’t care if we have a huge fairytale wedding or it’s just us and a few important friends and family members. It’s the idea behind the wedding, not the individual parts or the décor or the flowers.” – Jason, Kansas City, Missouri

“The end.” – Carl, Jackson, Mississippi

“The kissing the bride part. That’s definitely going to be my favorite part.” – Chris, Orlando, Florida

As you can see ladies, men (for the most part) don’t really care about the flowers, the décor, the seating arrangements, etc. They’re in it for the love! Be gentle with them as you’re planning the wedding and try to remember that while you’re focused on the elements of the wedding, your future hubby will be focused on you – the real prize he gets when the day is over.
