Planning a wedding can be a stressful time so we thought we'd guide you through some of the things to think about if your planning to give or receive gifts on or around the big day.
The wedding squad
Did you know that 78% of U.K. weddings have a wedding squad usually consisting of a Best Man, Ushers and Bridesmaids. We've created loads of gift ideas that can be personalised to suit those really important people!
Why not give one of our photo card gifts to your special girlfriends, they're super easy to adapt as the photo can be different for each them, reminding them of a special time in both your lives.
Ushers are often the first people your wedding guests will see on the big day and have a vital role ensuring everyone knows where to go and when, where to sit and even help escort guests to their seats if needed. So therefore Ushers definitely deserve a thank you. Our most popular gift for Ushers is one of our wash bags which can be embossed with either their initials or name to make them super personal.
The Best Man
The best man is exactly that and has the most duties out of all the wedding squad. So it's nice to give hime something to wear on the day and keep forever. When we introduced our Best Man belt we didn't know how popular it would be, but its ended up being our best selling item!
The Happy Couple
In most of Europe it's traditional to give money as a wedding gift and that's also becoming more and more popular in the U.K. too. We think however it's lovely to show your friends how much you know them and get them something that they'll love and use regularly. If they love to travel for example matching luggage tags are great or if they love games then maybe a backgammon or a chess set. We can personalise all of these with either our embossing or laser engraving machines. This means we can not only offer Mr & Mrs but Mr & Mr and Mrs & Mrs too!
If your already married!
Did you know that a gift of leather for your 3rd year wedding anniversary is traditional? We've got loads of gifts that can be personalised with 3 year messages and photos.
Any of these can work for other years and not just three years of marriage. Imagine our handmade leather wallet embossed with "50 golden years" and inserted with a photo card from the day 50 years ago? How gorgeous would that be!
Happy Wedding (or anniversary) planning! Andreya xx
