This is the staff of the Japanese tableware mail order site "Uchiru".
This time we will introduce tableware recommended for wedding gifts.

In recent years, many people have been giving tableware as wedding gifts, saying, ``I want to choose something that people will be happy to use every day,'' and tableware has become a popular item.

I remember hearing a long time ago that it is not suitable for celebrations because it "breaks"...

In order to help those who are unsure about choosing wedding gifts with peace of mind, we will introduce tableware that is often given as wedding gifts and etiquette when gifting them.
It will also be helpful for those who want to prepare tableware in their new life.

Tableware is a classic wedding gift! ~ Bad luck is a thing of the past ~

Tableware and glasses used to be considered unsuitable as wedding gifts because they had the image of being breakable.

Nowadays, however, it has become a standard celebration because it is both practical and a commemoration of marriage.

In addition, tableware is said to be an auspicious gift, as it represents a new life, and because it can be broken a lot, it means prosperity for descendants.
(If you are really interested, it is safe to listen to the request and send the gift.)

6 points when choosing a wedding gift

Pair of things

Two tea bowls are one.
It is perfect as a wedding gift because one of the pieces must not be missing.

Surprisingly, many people don't have matching items, so it's a great keepsake.

Things that can be used for a long time

Tableware takes up space and tastes vary.

For that reason, let's ask about items that can be used for a long time.
If you like wine, get a pair of wine glasses, and if you like coffee, get a set of a pair of mugs and a dripper.

If you have superiors who find it difficult to ask about their preferences, choose something that is easy to use on a daily basis and has a design that doesn't make too much of an statement, such as a set of simple, plain plates.

Auspicious things

Gifts of chopsticks and bowls as wedding gifts have the meaning of saying "you won't have to worry about food."

Chopsticks are also recommended because they have many positive meanings, such as ``bridging happiness'' and ``bridging energy and longevity.''

Also, choosing chopsticks with red and white colors, gold or silver decorations, or high-quality lacquer chopsticks that will last a long time will give a celebratory feel.

Unbreakable tableware (wooden, lacquerware)

Even though tableware is not taboo for celebrations, some people may be concerned about it.

If you are a little worried about giving tableware as a gift, it would be a good idea to give lacquerware or wooden vessels.
Lacquerware can be repainted and used for a long time, so it is likely to be a item that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Things that match the interior

Woodworking Container

If you know the tastes of the two of you well, it would be a good idea to choose something that matches the interior.

For a natural interior, use wooden tableware or powdered ceramics with a warm earthy feel; for a stylish interior, use items with a modern design or metal tumblers.

We also recommend choosing tableware that suits your home.

Most certain! Hearing the person's wishes

If you are close to each other, it is safest to listen to the other person's opinion before making your choice.
Tableware is an essential item for everyday meals, but it takes up a lot of space and tastes vary.

It may be a burden to give something that overlaps with what you already own, so it's a good idea to ask them to tell you what they can use on a daily basis.

How to deliver ~ Considering the convenience of the recipient ~

When giving a wedding gift, it is important to carefully determine when and how to give it so as not to cause any inconvenience to the recipient.

Generally, after receiving the wedding invitation, it is best to hand it out "1 to 2 months before the wedding, or at least 1 week before the wedding." It is said to be good.

On the day of the event, some people give it at the reception along with a gift, but this is not allowed.
