Quite often, members of the bridal party, such as the parents of the bride, parents of the groom, best men, ushers, bridesmaids, maids of honour, flower girls and page boys take on roles of responsibility in the lead up to the wedding day, as well as on the actual day helping the bride and groom to ensure the event runs as smoothly as it can. This, of course, takes time and effort on the part of these guests; showing your appreciation for this through the tradition of giving wedding thank you gifts demonstrates how much you respect and value your friends' and family's time in helping to make your special day so fabulous. If you are looking for the perfect thank you gift for any member of the bridal party, then consider making that gift personalised. Adding a few kind words of gratitude to the present will not only last but will also reveal the thought and effort that has gone into it.
Personalised Wedding Thank You Photo Frames
A few years ago, I attended my cousin's wedding and whilst I was not a bridesmaid and did not have an official wedding title, I helped to set up and dress the tables at the local venue, in addition to helping out with other bits and pieces beforehand. My immediate family members did the same. Whilst we did not have an official role and were not expecting anything in return for our efforts, we were really pleased to have been gifted a personalised wedding photo frame a few weeks after the couple's special day. What made it even lovelier is that it had been engraved with the bride and grooms' names, a personal thank you message and a photo of our family with the bride and groom from the wedding day. The personalised thank you wedding photo frame still sits on our mantel piece years later. It was a really effective and fairly inexpensive way of the bride and groom showing their gratitude, especially since they also took the time to add in a photograph of themselves with our family.
Engraved Gifts for Men
Want to say thanks to a Best Man, Usher and Father of the Bride or Father of the Groom with a personal touch? If so, consider engraved gifts for men to which you can add a customised message onto. Select from classy looking engraved hip flasks, personalised glassware, including a personalised pint glass, a bottle of engraved whisky or an engraved pocket watch perhaps. All of these gift ideas are ‘men’ focused and perfect for adding their name, a message of thanks and the names of the bride and groom, should you wish. Again, engraved gifts are something that they can keep for years to come.
Thank You Wedding Gifts for Her
Ladies play a vital role in the wedding preparations, especially, the bridesmaids, the maid of honour (if you choose to have one), as well as the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom – the personalised wedding thank you gifts for these women could all be the same, with an individual message on each gift, such as engraved compact mirrors, or alternatively, perhaps bottles of personalised wine with luxury embossed pewter labels or maybe a personalised champagne glass? The ultimate treat could be a personalised prosecco glass with a bottle of mini prosecco – long after she’s consumed the prosecco, the personalised glass will be with her for long after…obviously, providing she’s not overly clumsy! If you have the budget, then why not splash out on a personalised Magnum Mr & Mrs prosecco with luxury embossed pewter label to which you could add your message of thanks?
Hopefully, you’ll agree that personalised gifts really do make a thoughtful thank you gift idea for weddings and you’ll also hopefully find that the presents don’t have to break the bank since weddings can certainly be expensive enough.
