Imagine the organisation lists for a wedding! Indeed, one of the best gifts you can give a bride is a wedding planner book.

It is the moment for the bride-to-be to feel like a model and to pose by her lover's side.

A wedding photoshoot that can be shot in a place dear to their heart, with a breathtaking landscape or simply in the photographer's salon - the future bride and groom will take advantage of this moment to create memories together. And if the bride-to-be is the kind of person who loves the camera, do not hesitate to dedicate this gift to her and share this moment with her to pamper her !
For this gift it is more difficult for us to advise you photographers as it will depend on the region and the city where the bride and groom live. Our advice, launch the search "couple photo session" on google and add the desired city. We are sure that many options will be available. Here are some inspiration photos /sceneries:
Couple dance lessons
A great moment of the wedding day is the first dance of the newlyweds. If for the fans of Strictly come Dancing or of MJ and JLo this may seem obvious, for others the first dance is a real challenge. So why not give them a little help? A few dance lessons before the big day can really help the bride and groom channel that inner dancers for a beautiful performance on thee D-Day. In addition to preparing them to perform for their guests to kick off the evening, it will offer them a moment of relaxation and entertainment during this stressful period of wedding preparations.
A personalized accessory
Who has never personalized an accessory or object with their name to stand out? We all have that little piece of jewelry, key ring, cushion, etc. with our initials! For the bride, how about giving her a gift with her name on it, to make her feel special! This could be a personalized makeup bag, an engraved necklace with a special date, a bracelet with the couple's initials, an original t-shirt, a mug or a printed candle, etc. The personalized gift or accessory for the bride will be dear to her heart. This object will always remind her of this important and significant period before her wedding.
