Personalised Wedding Gifts
Wedding days are full of joy and excitement and getting married is one of the best days of a couple’s life together. With two families coming together through marriage, there is no better reason to give the sentimental feel of a personalised gift. Whether it is for the bride or groom themselves, or any member of the wedding party, including the usher. Always treasure the memory of one of life’s greatest experiences.
Some Inspiration and Wedding Gift Ideas
What is the best gift for a wedding?
Popping open a bottle of bubbly to signal the start of the rest of their lives together is an important part of many couple’s marriage, so why not make it more sentimental with a bottle of personalised champagne or a set of engraved flutes. For something more unique and unusual; pewter labels are a fantastic way of making a bottle stand out and give it a much-deserved space on the mantelpiece.
Non-drinkers or couples that prefer a more homely feel could benefit more from a personalised photo frame. Featuring a photo from the big day and a customised message, the newlyweds will always see that special moment, frozen in time, to reminisce and remember with a smile.
For the others in the wedding party, including the parents of the bride and groom, best man and bridesmaids, there are many ideas for them to remember their important roles in the occasion. For the best man and father of the bride or groom, give them a memory to always carry around in the form of a pocket or wristwatch. For the bridesmaids and mother of the bride or groom, an engraved wine glass would be an ideal present to give, to put a smile on their face when they enjoy an evening drink.
What is the etiquette for wedding gifts?
Depending on who the person is you’re buying for, some gifts are more appropriate than others. For a non-drinking couple, something sentimental like a photo frame or watch might be better than champagne. It’s important to choose the correct product to buy as a wedding gift, which is why there are so many ideas to choose from.
How much should I spend on a wedding gift?
When buying a wedding gift, people usually spend more than other times, such as birthdays or Christmas. Some people believe that spending around £50-£75 as an all-day guest is the right amount, as this covers their meal. Others think that a standard £100 gift or contribution is the best way. Although people do spend more on average, it is the memories that it holds and provokes that is important, not the cost of the present. Whatever your budget, there is always a gift that will put a smile on someone’s face.
When to give gifts to a wedding party?
Most people bring their gift to the wedding and put them with the others in the designated gift area. Some prefer to send them before the big day as it helps reduce the number of things the couple needs to move afterwards.
Do I send a wedding gift if not attending?
With buying a gift online, you can send it directly to the bride and groom. This is perfect if you’re not attending but still want to send a gift. Depending on how close you are to the couple, you may or may not want to send something to show your support and help celebrate the special occasion.
How to wrap a wedding gift?
Many gifts come in a box that can easily be wrapped, but if it doesn’t, then choose a box that fits the present in and line it with tissue paper and wrap it in a standard, solid wrap, such as silver or white. Finish off with a nice ribbon and include a card.
What to put on a wedding gift card?
Depending on the couple, you could write a funny or casual message. Sometimes a short, formal greeting is enough. You can include quotes from inspirational people, films, songs, or come up with your own.
