Summer is (allegedly) upon us and the wedding season has well and truly arrived! Across the Country blushing brides and flustered grooms are pledging their troth and sipping fizz as you read.
A couple of years ago we were commissioned by the model Elle Liberachi which we detailed in our blog at the time (‘Just get me to the church on time‘). Elle chose to create a ‘Keep the Date’ box – specially crafted to her own specifications. This has become an extremely popular idea. Why not create a stir with a gorgeous, bespoke box for your wedding invitation? It certainly is very different from the usual invite regardless how attractive it might be. Elle’s box was exquisite with foil embossing and a luxury, padded Suedel® interior and naturally came at some expense – but cheaper options are available and still make a fantastic and very different invitation idea.
Presentation boxes can be used elsewhere on your wedding day. As the guests are seated for the Wedding Breakfast why not ‘Wow’ them with some gorgeous favours in presentation boxes? Party favours are highly fashionable nowadays so why not make them extra-special with some beautiful packaging? We have created a number of ‘favour’ boxes over the years. The favourites tend to be quite simple with the names of the bride and groom and perhaps the date, embossed with foil on the lid, although it is very possible to make more elaborate boxes with drawers and compartments for the gifts.
Favour boxes add a little something extra to the wedding day, something a little original and different. Over the years we’ve made a number of heart-shaped boxes in magenta and pink which are a beautiful touch for a wedding table.
Similarly it’s often a lovely idea to serve chocolates, sweets or biscuits to guests with coffee and tea after the meal. Once again it’s a lovely extra touch to have them presented nicely – perhaps again with the name of the Bride and Groom or perhaps ‘Thank you for coming’.
Such small yet delightful touches can make the difference between a marvellous wedding and a magical one. Our in-house designers can take your ideas and run through the whole process with you keeping it personal and unique to your special day. So if you have any friends or family getting married this year why not recommend GWD to them?
