Buying a gift for anyone can present itself as a challenge. As you browse through different department stores and boutiques picking things up and then putting them right back. Thinking to yourself “maybe this or maybe that.” Well this becomes a bit more difficult when the bride is expecting. However, after brainstorming I have come up with ten ideas to help you choose a gift for the pregnant bride.
What woman doesn’t love getting pampered? Of course there is no one that would turn down a wonderful full body massage. Especially pregnant women because that extra weight really puts the pressure on their feet and muscles. A gift certificate for a pregnancy massage will be appreciated.
Your sister, cousin or best friend is getting married and it is time to plan a special day for the girls. While you may be contemplating what to do, the most appropriate gathering for an expecting bride would be a shower. Bachelorette parties are a lot of fun but the activities involved are a little inappropriate. Here are some of the differences to help you understand why a shower is best for the pregnant bride.
Time of Day
A huge difference between a bridal shower and a bachelorette party is the time of day. Bridal showers are usually for a couple of hours during the day sometime between lunch and dinner. On the other hand bachelorette parties are normally on a Friday or Saturday night. Late nights are not good for an expecting mother as she needs lots of rest. The bridal shower would be easier on her sleep schedule.
While planning your wedding is already stressful, adding the time crunch and pregnancy on top of that makes it a disaster waiting to happen. Thankfully you can avoid the stress by putting together a simple wedding, one that will satisfy your taste and keep your nerves at rest. To help plan your maternity wedding on a time crunch I have put together tips on how to plan a simple wedding close to home.
The most convenient location for a wedding ceremony and reception would be at a local hotel, Public Park, community center or your family’s back yard/house. This way you can have both events at one location. It will cut down on how many flower arrangements and décor you have to order and worrying about people getting to and from each event.
By the time most people disclose to their families that they are pregnant there are only about six months left to have the maternity wedding before the little one arrives. Whether you were already engaged or decided based on the pregnancy it is an exciting time. To make sure you can plan and execute your dream wedding before baby comes I have put together five quick wedding ideas.
On the Farm
If you live in the city or a very populated area then getting out into the country for a farm wedding might be just what you need. From the vast open scenery to the gorgeous gazebos and farm houses, you are sure to find the perfect place to have the ceremony and reception. Look online or in the phone book to see if there are any farms that do weddings in the countryside near you.
