It’s hard to believe that Wedding Season is upon us again. Have you ever wondered when the practice of giving wedding gifts started in history?
Wedding gifts for brides date back hundreds of years.
The practice of giving a dowry was commonplace in the middle ages. Hope chests, filled with the future wife goods, became fairly common in America during colonial times. The tradition of gift-giving for weddings dates back to the 1920s when Macy’s debuted the first bridal registry.
Since then, the rest is history!
In the early days of wedding season gifting, it was common to gift a bride ornate crystal, silver and China. Our Honey Gifts make a lot more sense for your soon to be the bride instead of an old hope chest filled with linens and trinkets or a silver serving tray that will only resurface for holidays.
