{wedding day} gifts...

i had totally forgotten to write about the secret gifts until one of my readers reminded me (thanks stephanie!)...

for the groom...
ok, i'm warning you..this really isn't very unique..to you..but for my groom, it was perfect. we got engaged in new york, he needed cuff links for his new french cuff shirt (didn't own a pair), and our style for the wedding was vintage..so of course, i just had to get these:

they are vintage nyc subway tokens set in sterling silver. gorgeous in person..and he loved them.

for the fam...
we really wanted to do something special for our parents. without their examples of love and the support of our relationship, this wonderful day would have never happened. so we presented them with a small token at the rehearsal dinner to represent the gift that would arrive later:

a cherry tree, already picked out and paid for was to be planted at each home, representing the strength of our love that they can watch grow over the years.

what are your unique or thoughtful gift ideas?
