A small Digital camera makes a great gift.

With a slim digital camera in her bag, she'll be able to snap away and remember her options later. The bride planning her wedding with a fiance or mother far away will doubly appreciate the easy ability to digitally share pictures for consideration.

Something with her New Name on it.
Monogrammed anything makes a Unique Gift.
If a bride is changing her name, she'll appreciate getting towels, slippers, keepsake boxes, a robe, anything with her new initials on it. If she's not changing her name, similar items featuring the two initials for her and her fiance's last names will give hints of the new life she'll soon lead. She most likely won't have registered for monogrammed items - most registries that I know of don't have this option - so your gift will be unique. You can have just about anything monogrammed these days, so just ask. She'll appreciate the thought and you'll be the star.
A Honeymoon Themed Gift is a great way to go.
Something to use on the trip.
If you know where she's planning on honeymooning, she'll love a helpful guidebook on the spot, or appropriate accessories. She won't have registered for it, but it will be tremendously helpful. Use your imagination. If she's going to a hot spot, a basket with suntan lotions, cremes, etc' would be great, and a few luxurious beach towels too. Maybe Europe, in which case a Guide to the Top 10 Places to See would be an excellent idea, along with something appropriate for the season to wear.
