Did I ever tell you of the most romantic thing I saw a groom do before a wedding – and no it was not something Dave did.

At my best friend’s wedding, her fiancé gave her diamond studs as a wedding present. But he didn’t just hand them to her. He bought a book – The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales – and cut out a square in the pages to hold the little black velvet box. He placed it at the beginning of a certain chapter – I don’t remember which one.

Anyway, he wrapped it up with a card and gave it to her before the wedding. She loved the book, but was pleasantly surprised when he told her to open it to a specific page. Even though she already chose earrings to wear, she of course wore the ones her groom gave her.

I just thought this was a great story. You can forward it to your groom with a note saying, “How sweet is this!” And a reminder that he may want to buy you a wedding gift. Many brides know of this tradition, but their grooms do not.

In order to not be disappointed on your wedding day, I highly recommend telling your fiancé that you expect/want him to give you a wedding gift – or both of you should decide not to do it.

The diamond studs featured above are from FOREVER10. The number 10 stands for the 10 perfect hearts and 10 perfect arrows visible in each diamond, making it the most exquisitely cut diamond in the world.
