It is summer; wedding season. And now, more than ever, couples everywhere walk down the aisle to pledge their lives to each other. Whether you have a traditional church service and an elaborate reception or a simple gathering on the beach, a wedding serves to forever mark the time in our lives when we pledged ourselves to our spouse; and pictures, video, and other mementos help us remember the day.
Those guests we invite to the wedding will bring gifts to help the new couple begin their new life together. Some are actual gifts – china, candlesticks, and other pieces that will not only serve the couple well in their home but will also allow them the memory of their wedding in the years to come. Of course, wedding guests also often give cash for a wedding gift for the couple to use in whatever capacity they most desire. Sometimes this money is used to pay for essential items that they need for their home; other times it’s used to purchase those pieces that are sentimental in nature. And in rare occurrences there are pieces that can be both.
Grandfather clocks are wonderful pieces that are perfect in nearly any room in the home. From the traditional to the unusual, grandfather clocks are able to brighten a room and instantly elevate the sophistication factor. Better still, for those who have just been married, the purchase of a grandfather clock during this year will forever serve as a memento of this special time and will likely become a family heirloom that is passed down from generation to generation.
