But what do you gift someone who already has everything?
Price points may not be your concern if you’re trying to gift someone who has everything already. What do you do in that case? There’s always the tried-and-true option of champagne, or since your newly engaged friends are ready to dive into wedding planning frenzy, you could consider gifting them the services of a wedding planner who you know will do a good job. On another hand, the gift of wedding videography is a secret gem that is often overlooked. Most people unfortunately don’t realize that video is a must until after their wedding passes, so give the gift of foresight to ensure that they will be able to relive their wedding day complete with sound and movement – something photos alone can’t capture!
