GWG stands for Guests Wedding Gifts. Now when you talk about wedding gifts most people immediately think of what they are going to get for the couple getting married. But often couples like to show there appreciation to their guests for making the time and effort to attend their most important day.
There are lots of good Ideas for a gift. If you have someone in your family/friends who are talented handmade gifts are always the best (I think). The gift doesn’t have to be expensive but I always think of something personal to everyone… sounds a bit daunting doesn’t it. Well, it doesn’t have to be.
How about a thoughtful thank you card they find handwritten by you both saying thanks. This one takes a bit of time but what’s more thoughtful than you taking the time to hand write each one individually.
Another one might be glasses. Back in the eighties (yes that’s 1980) personalised engraved glasses were all the rage. i.e The couples names and wedding date in toasting flutes.
Well I was at a wedding on the Sunshine Coast, Kawana Surf Club recently where the couple gave EVERY guest a glass that they had handwritten (glitter type pen) the guests name on. The guests took their very own glass home with them as a gift. There were wine, beer and even some very glittery kids drinking glasses. Well done Michelle and Lee.
Under each glass was the table number each guest was sitting at… a nice alternative (or add on) to a table sign. The guests loved it!!
I’ve also seen some antique type keys, sweets, small plants and the list goes on… what’s something you like or think your guests might like to treasure / remember you special day by?
