There is also an optional tradition for the bride and groom to exchange gifts the night before their wedding or even on the actual day of their wedding.

While the usual gifts that grooms give their brides is a necklace or a pair of earrings or any form of jewelry. One groom from the Philippines recently made headlines for the totally unexpected gift he prepared for his lucky bride.
