  Inside My Wedding: Have a look at NI couple's classic day at the Galgorm Resort and Spa Sarah and Jonathan had originally planned for a bohemian beach wedding in Ibiza Sarah (30) and Jonathan (31) Gracey, from Banbridge and Newry, met on a night out and have been inseparable ever since, getting engaged in 2014 in Crete.

Wedding season has arrived, and we are getting an influx of wedding invitations.

When it comes to weddings not only do you have to think of your wedding guest outfit, possible accommodation, but what gift to buy the soon to be married couple.

In most cases giving money or vouchers is a popular request, as it can go towards the bride and groom’s dream honeymoon after their wedding ceremony.

But, if you are anything like us, you may prefer to give a gift, as it is more thoughtful.  But what are the best wedding gifts to buy?

Unique wedding gifts for couples who have everything

When it comes to wedding gifts finding a present that is unique, and to the couple’s taste, is a great route to go down.  Often married couples receive the same gifts, such as home appliances, vouchers, or money, but something that is a little more outside of the box, or thoughtful will be most appreciated.

While some may be impressed with a spa treatment, weekend, or experience, others may be shopping for a gift that is even more unique to impress.

Wedding gifts for couples who are getting married abroad

Destination weddings are hugely popular, and often more intimate with immediate family and closest friends invited.

If you are one of the lucky ones to make the cut you will want to gift something extra special.  But it is worth considering the luggage allowance - for both you and the married couple - and avoiding weighty or fragile gifts, which is why buying a new Le Creuset crockery set may not be the best idea. But we have the solution.

Wedding gifts for couples who are on their second marriage

For the couples who have been married before, whether to someone else, or renewing their wedding vows, a gift still goes a long way.

While some will still appreciate the classic wedding gifts, some may feel obliged to opt for something a little different to treat the newlyweds too. Either way, it’s the thought that counts.
