In most parts of the country, Memorial Day Weekend is considered the unofficial start of the wedding season. But around the Bay Area, with fall usually offering some of the best weather, we've found that August through October seems to be prime wedding time. With these nuptials comes the decision of what to buy the happy couple.
Yes, registries exist for a reason to make wedding gift-giving easier. But recently, friends of ours got hitched during a tiny City Hall ceremony and decided to forgo a registry. Of course, that didn't stop us from wanting to mark the occasion with a present. So we had to start brainstorming creative yet practical gifts.
We're sure that AT readers out there have some great ideas. What are some of the best gifts you received at your wedding? Or what gifts have you given that you know the couple absolutely loves? Anything you would avoid giving or not want to receive? And why does the KitchenAid mixer show up on every registry?
