When it comes to weddings, companies and blogs often focus solely on the bride and her bridal party. At Wedding Story Writer, we like to shift the focus onto the grooms out there as often as we can. If you’re struggling with an idea for your leading man, a nice pair of cufflinks is always a good bet, as is a beautiful Legacy Book. Cufflinks are also a good way for the groom to be able to express his personality beyond the constraints of a tux, so don’t be afraid to have some fun when selecting a pair. Personally, we think cufflinks tend to be a better gift idea than ties and handkerchiefs. More often than not, these two items end up having to match the color scheme of the wedding, so there’s less room for personalization.
A good example is a set of crown cufflinks from Deakin Francis. Well-crafted and whimsical, these sterling silver cufflinks take care of a wedding day necessity yet also add a bit of style to the groom’s overall look, plus he can wear them for years down the road and pass them on to his future sons or grandsons. The fact that they’re in the shape of a king’s crown also makes them especially appropriate for a bride to give them to her groom–a pair of crowns befitting a king.
When thinking about a wedding gift for your future spouse, keep in mind the heirloom aspect. Weddings are such important lifetime events, and your future offspring will be very pleased to keep the “something old” tradition when the day comes where they will be the ones walking down the aisle.
I imagine how pleasing it would be to know a dear father or grandfather wore these cufflinks to his own wedding, and the sentimental value can never be beat.
