According to an article by The Knot, the most popular months for weddings are June, August, and September. It makes perfect sense, if you think about it. The Summer months symbolize the growth and renewal of Spring; an allegory to new beginnings in life. Summer is also an opportune time for people to execute their vacation plans. An extended getaway, such as a honeymoon, would likely incorporate both the Summer sabbatical and the post-wedding celebration. It’s part of the reason why marriages tend to come about during this time of year as opposed to the Winter months of January, February, and March.
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW…
Now, regardless of whether the happily married couple are relatives or friends of yours, you’re going to want to get them a special and thoughtful gift to commemorate this union of souls because you’re a kind, generous, and benevolent person. The official wedding registry is a not-so-subtle hint as to what to buy, not unlike the Christmas wish list for Santa. Electronics such as flat panel TVs and Blu-Ray players are welcome, so are tickets to their favorite sporting event or live music concert, and of course, money is always gratefully appreciated. Nevertheless, proper wedding etiquette (as dictated by The Knot) dictates that kitchen, entertaining, bed and bath gifts are an absolute must--and it just so happens that we, at Our Pampered Home, specialize in those areas! Give the newlyweds something to cherish forever with some freshly-picked wedding season gift ideas from our kitchen, entertaining, and bath categories.
Many couples use their post-wedding bounty as means to overhaul and upgrade their kitchen setup. They might replace tarnished and worn out silverware, purchase new state-of-the-art kitchen gadgets and appliances, and if they’re feeling really adventurous, maybe even completely refurnish the whole kitchen itself. Well, there’s not much we can do to help if they decide to choose the latter option and redo their kitchen (if anything, you can always go online and suggest an expert handyman or kitchen design specialist), but kitchen and cookware items are a good start.
