The Perfect Wedding Gift

June is the official month for weddings, At least so I have been told.  It does not matter the culture of the bride, the groom, and their families, I have read that the connective bond between all cultures is the wedding present.

For instance, in Turkey, it is tradition to give a gold coin. from a rather large coin to a thumb-size gold quarter. Guests line up to pin these coins to the bride's gown. You can also pin cash to her gown as well as drop coins into her purse.

In Japan, the couple is the one who give gifts to the guests, which are small token of appreciation or small treats.  It is a way of thanks for attending their wedding.  You can bring cash for the bride and groom and put them in a small envelope.

In Egypt, they do not have bridal showers, instead the bride and her bride's maids dress up in traditional Galabiya gowns a few days before the wedding. during that time, they paint their bodies in Henna patterns, and the artist will hid the groom's initials in the bride's hands.  On the wedding night, the groom will search for his initials, and if he cannot find them, he give a gift to his bride.

These are a few of the many traditions around the world.  Start your own tradition.   I have the perfect gift for the first year the couple is together.  It is presented by Sharon Wood, and it involves wine.  Of course, if the couple does not drink, you can always substitute the beverage with non-alcoholic drink.   June is all about picnics, so the special for the month, is four different types of picnic baskets, and you have a few more days to make your purchase.   Visit to take a look.
