The balance between being thoughtful and what a couple wants can be tricky. Going off registry can yield you the most thoughtful gifts, but ensure you know the couple very well before doing so. We’ve captured a few of our favorites below that are always a hit.

Looking for something to be used on the big day? Check out Etsy for our favorite selections on Guest Books. We’re not talking about a book with sheets of paper and signatures. These guest books are keepsakes capturing memories, advice and well wishes on the biggest day the couples’ life. It’s something they’ll be able to join as will their family for years to come after the wedding. Filled with sweet, heartfelt messages, you can be the first to write a special note inside for the couple to find on their big day!

Depending on where the couple is honeymooning, some fun beach attire could be perfect for the trip. If it’s a Euro exploration, search for classic pieces like scarves & hats. What better way to get her thinking about her post-wedding relaxation with her new hubby than an accessory for her to pack for her honeymoon? Check out this adorable, fun hat on Etsy! We think it would look adorable monogrammed with her new name or a simple ‘do no disturb’ stitched in. If not, there’s always the classic ‘Rose all day.’

We all know how the saying goes…something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. She’s probably overwhelmed trying to get the major details locked down (like flowers) and most likely hasn’t had time to think about the smaller ones. I love this gift in particular because it’s discreet. It’s something special under her gown that only she’ll know is there. Plus it makes for a super fun photo with the photographer on the wedding day. Etsy is the perfect place to find a gift like this.
