People choose to have a small justice of the peace ceremony for various reasons. Perhaps it's financial or the couple doesn't want a large, fussy wedding. When a couple has a large wedding they often receive many generous gifts. Gifts for a couple marrying at justice of the peace shouldn't be any different.


A high quality set of white or cream table linens makes a great wedding gift. Choose neutral colors as they can be used any time and can be combined with other colors of linen. Ivory colored linen tablecloths, napkins and table runners can be use for a multitude of occasions.


Classic platters made of glass, crystal or silver are another wedding gift idea. The type that you choose depends on your budget and the style of the couple. Platters are used at holidays, dinner parties and home decorating. They are a versatile wedding gift that will be appreciated. Give a set of three if possible.


Cash is also and option for a wedding gift. This is especially true for a couple having a justice of the peace ceremony. If the couple does not have a bridal registry, cash is one way to give them a gift you know they'll appreciate. The actual amount you give depends on your own budget.
