And when it is almost ready for the upcoming celebration, left behind pre-wedding chores, guests are invited and costumes designed and purchased, there is only one most important question: what can we give the best friend in this important day for her?
After all, you have so much time together, trust each other all their secrets, so you'll probably want to gift an unforgettable and enjoyable for the bride. In this case, get rid of the standard tea service, iron, vase or coffee grinder you may not.
Choose the best gift
Wedding - a very responsible and important day in everyone's life, this festival is different from all the rest of his tenderness, solemnity, romance. Typically, as a gift for the wedding choose something practical: vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens, kettles, bed linen, irons or envelopes with money.
But things like that give almost all the invited guests, and there are even some embarrassing situations when the same gift presented by different people, so it's best to come up with something more original. If your girlfriend during the pre-wedding shopping or evening gatherings she hinted that she would like to get from you, you have to work hard to organize a pleasant and decent surprise.
Arrange a bachelorette party
The event should be organized only if the bride herself did not bother about it. Then the fun bachelorette party can be a wonderful gift for the wedding, but all the preparations will have to take (of course, not without the active help of other friends). By the way, in the old days at the bachelorette party was made to shed tears and sadness, because she always said goodbye to their freedom.
But times change, and today it is one of the best reasons to have fun from the heart. You can arrange gatherings in cafes, in nature or in a country house, but do not forget the last day to keep it a secret from her best friend.
This evening in any case should not be boring, if your imagination and financial opportunities allow, we can make a real show, come up with fun contests and entertainment. The main rule of this holiday - it is impossible to invite men (except for strippers). Let it be only the closest girl friends of the bride, who are genuinely happy upcoming wedding and wish her only the good and happiness.
If suddenly your girlfriend is a practical and restrained emotions girl, we will not rule out such a gift, the more that we are not talking about the same sets and teapots. Memorable, useful and practical gift for a wedding can be a gold watch, original jewelry, a jewelry certificate or any other shop. By the way, the last gift is especially in demand and popularity among today's youth: you pay a certain amount you can afford, and the choice of the goods or services are provided by his girlfriend.
Knowing the particular preferences of the bride, you can purchase a certificate to the store cosmetics, underwear, clothing, perfume, jewelry, furniture and so on. And if the financial opportunities allow, give the newlyweds both certificate for spa treatments or massages. By the way, you can also invite your friend with the fitting joint shopping and pay the most sexy and beautiful lingerie set for the wedding night, which is sure to impress and enjoy her fiance.
Memorable gift with their own hands
If you own any handmade talent, then, perhaps, you are able to come up with an original and memorable gift for a wedding, made by hand, which will be able to invest part of his soul and warmth of his heart. The only caveat: you must be sure that it will assess the relationship (if in doubt, play it safe).
For example, you can build ornate floral tree, perform embroidered panels with portraits of the bride and groom, or paint them on canvas and place in a beautiful gilded frame. Everything will depend on your skills, capabilities and imagination, but do not forget to like a friend, this gift must be made carefully, carefully, beautifully, and not hastily and carelessly.
A pleasant surprise for two
If you are going to a wedding to please not only his close friend, and both of the newlyweds, there may be several other versions of gifts. As mentioned above, it can be certified for two at the spa or in a store, but that's not all. Everyone knows that modern wedding - rather expensive celebration, but at the same time, the young want to afford that day as much as possible.
Help your friends save a little and realize a dream: it can offer to pay some part of the celebration, which the bride and bridegroom have decided not to spend money, for example, a luxury limousine, walking coach, live orchestra or a bright holiday fireworks. And if your financial capabilities allow you to choose a more expensive gift, entertain newlyweds honeymoon (you can team up with other friends).
Not wanting to give the wedding banal and practical things, do not be afraid to improvise. Make a huge bouquet of seventy-seven white roses and pay shipping at a certain time to the table. Believe me, it will look very impressive, especially if you talk to the master of ceremonies in advance and ask them to beat your interesting surprise.
No less an original gift will be booked at a nearby hotel Bridal Suite for two with candles, balloons, champagne, rose petals and other romantic attributes. It will be good if you have them order a breakfast in the room with a card and sincere wishes to live together happily ever after.
Not bad will look as a gift and a great family photo album in the style of old books with thick pages, golden parchment paper, commemorative inscriptions, where the young will be able to keep a history of their family in their pictures. You can insert your own first photographs of the girlfriend and her future husband were still in the status of girls and boys.
And maybe, after all the money?
Often the most anticipated gift for the wedding is an envelope with the money, because the collected amount the couple will always be able to buy just what they need. But the lack of a present that he almost always looks the same type (except for the invested amount of notes). If you have firmly decided to give money to a friend, try to avoid platitudes.
You can do this in several ways: to overwhelm the guests themselves Suite number of zeros (effective only for well-endowed individuals) or connect imagination. The second option is more appropriate and will enable original, unusual and fun to teach even very substantial sum.
To do this, every bill to tie a bright ribbon and add a label "for dinner in the restaurant," "wife on coat", "husband for a beer", "just in case", and the like. And if after marrying young are planning to move into a new apartment or house, you can give them a wedding cute fluffy kitten and ribbon carefully attach the envelope with the money (provided that the couple love animals).
Generally good girlfriends know almost everything about each other, and you like no one else should be aware of the preferences, wishes and dreams of the future bride, so you will be much easier to please with Prezent the wedding than the guests, who have much less information.
Whatever you have presented to her friend in this important day for her, be sure to invest in a gift warm your soul and good attitude to it, and then the bride will certainly appreciate all your hard work, love and care! By the way, do not forget to buy a luxury bouquet of her favorite flowers and prepare a beautiful and sincere congratulatory speech (or toast) Honeymoon in prose or verse.

Such parties are called "pajama". Their spontaneity and charm in the absence of time-consuming training. After all, we, the girls need for a good mood?

What kind of music was played in discos? And what was the main "highlight" of the table? Declare guests that essential dress code are popular once emerald and crimson tights for women and jeans for men Varenkov (or something else according to the selected period).
Do not forget about the hair bouffant and plastic rings in my ears. Suppose we have a threshold guests to immerse themselves in the right atmosphere under the influence of recognizable melodies.

If on a hanger in the hallway during the warmer months piled winter, spring and autumn clothing, then remove it in the closet, because guests need somewhere to hang coats, jackets and windbreakers. The bathroom should be based on a new piece of soap or bottle of liquid stand means and hang some clean towels and put on the balcony a couple of ashtrays. Do not miss out of the spotlight and an additional roll of toilet paper. Question slippers solve difficult, because if a lot of guests, they are not enough for all.
