Wedding celebrant Kath Tilly shares some excellent advice how to surprise your special someone on the day.
Words by Kath Tilly
The “Brides Gift” is an area that we have seen attempted, completely forgotten, and knocked out of the park. We want to help you knock it out of the park!
First off, this might not even be on your radar because you already purchased the engagement ring... right?
We do hear you loud and clear and 100% agree that weddings can be very expensive! But trust us when we tell you that this gesture will seriously win you some HUGE brownie points to call on for many years to come.
Organising a surprise gift isn't just a way of thanking your partner for taking on most of the wedding planning, it lets them know you appreciate them and can’t wait to finally start your adventure together “officially” as a married couple. When done right, it adds to the memories of the day that they will cherish forever, and it really does not have to cost much at all. A little can certainly go a long way...
Top 10 Inspirational Ideas for that special gift:
A hand-written Love Letter
Champagne and Flowers
Hamper of favourite snacks delivered on the morning of the big day
Slideshow of memories
MIXED TAPE (or Spotify Playlist) for getting ready
Go all out... Fireworks!
So, make sure this surprise gesture is on your hit list and you can thank me later!

Kath believes a wedding day celebration should be as much about the Groom as it is the Bride.
So, much so that she (with her husband Glen) created Groomology - Australia’s first online wedding resource for guys that want to help with wedding planning but just not sure how to go about it. Check it out here.
Kath loves to work with down to earth couples that want a wedding day celebration that is a great reflection of both the bride and the groom’s personality and style. She also enjoys creating inclusive ceremonies where different family member or friends can be involved in unique ways.
