Wedding season is approaching and the tradition of gift giving throughout the festivities of a wedding expands beyond just the typical "wedding present".
There's the engagement party, you must take a gift! The wedding shower may take on a theme, often geared towards the bride's passions. And then there is the wedding gift for the couple.
Did you know that Macy's invented the gift registry in the 1920s?
Wedding gifts originated from the notion of a bride price or dowry that was paid to the bride's family. It usually included land, animals, money, and other forms of historical wealth. The first recorded dowry was exchanged in 3,000 B.C.
