Five Fun Shirts For The Wife-To-Be

A Bride On A Budget received one of these items for review.

Getting married is fun. You get engaged, which is always a fun story to tell. Then you plan the wedding, which is one of the hardest and stressful but most rewarding tasks you'll endure in your life.

And then you're married.

And what people lose sight of is the actual marriage. Yes, you should plan a wedding, but you need to plan for your marriage. You need to remember that the reception is a party but the commitment you make is important. Really important.

That part is fun too. Trust me. It's nice to have a husband and to be someone's wife. That's what the engagement and wedding lead to. So instead of filling your closet with items that say bride and bride-to-be, fill it with a word that's less fleeting: wife. If you're a wife -- or a bridesmaid of a wife-to-be -- you'll love this. I picked out five really fun shirts for the wife-to-be.

And, just an idea: Any of these would be super fun to pack and bring on the honeymoon!

Need a gift idea for a bride? Pick her up one of these fun shirts for the wife-to-be that www.abrideonabudget.com wrote about. It'll get more use than a "bride" top.

Happy Wife Happy Life Tee
Pete and I joke about the "Happy wife happy life" rhyme, but it's true. It's also true that if you have a happy husband you have a happy life, but that doesn't flow a well. I would actually pick this Happy Wife Happy Life tee up as a joke, but there is more truth in it than a wife-to-be might realize.

Personalized Wife Since T-Shirt

I like this Personalized Wife Since t-shirt. You can add the year your bride is getting married to make it just a bit more unique. Little things like that really add something special to your gift and, really, that's what you want to accomplish when you're buying an off-registry gift.

Coolest Wife Ever Tank Top
I remember seeing the Coolest Wife Ever tank top and wanting to buy it for myself ... and then thinking that was sort of not the cool thing to do. So I didn't get it. But if you are or know a cool bride, she'll be a cool wife. And, as a result, needs this tank top. Tell her to wear it well (and think of me).

Trophy Wife T-Shirt
I'm laughing so hard at this Trophy Wife t-shirt that it would be doing this post a disservice to not include it. And hey, maybe your friend is a trophy wife. Nothing wrong with that. It started with bad connotations, and they might still linger, but there's nothing bad about your husband treating you right and being proud to have you around -- and that's what I think part of a trophy wife is (a modern one, anyway).

Off-Shoulder Wifey Tee
We got a chance to check out the Off-Shoulder Wifey tee from Fox Blossom. I'm in love with it. The letters are screen printed on some of the softest and most comfortable fabric I've ever worn. And, honestly, that's how marriage is. It's really comfortable. That's how is should be. It's work (just like Ben Affleck said in that speech when he won some award for Argo that may or may not have actually cost him is marriage ... ), but it's also comfortable.

Purchase here.

I love personalized wedding items. They're really cute and great for photos. But they can end up being one-time use items (I have a bridesmaid robe that has been stuck in my closet since my cousin's wedding day). Something like a Wifey tee, it's a one-lifetime use item. And that's a lot more than once.

  10. I'm not a "bride" since I've been married for 26 years, and don't think I'm wifey either. I need one that says Business Partner, lol.
