Regardless if you’re getting married at your local church and expecting several out-of-town guests or planning an elaborate destination affair, wedding gift baskets are an excellent and inexpensive way to welcome your visitors and thank them for their love and presence.
Most of your guests will just be happy to be at your wonderful event. However, a nice little wedding favor or gift basket can go a long way! It shows them exactly how special it is for them to be there with you on your magical day. Well-planned and thoughtful wedding gift baskets will make their stay much more memorable from the moment they check-in. We are all familiar with the classic items that can go into a gift basket. Things like sandals, towels, bath salts, and other handy items will be useful during your guests stay. However, it is also important to think about the “fun” factor. Your guests will enjoy their wedding gift baskets even more if you include items that will allow them to participate in the fun from the very first minute.
Sparklers in your Wedding Gift Baskets
Wedding sparklers can be a great addition to a wedding gift basket. Everyone loves sparklers, and they can be arranged very decoratively to give a floral bouquet feel. Also, providing wedding sparklers is a great way to encourage your guests to participate in your wedding event. Plus, it’s a great way to repurpose an unused item for your wedding such as left over sparklers from your 4th of July party!
Sky lanterns are another excellent choice for your gift baskets. While you will likely want the sky lanterns to be released at your wedding ceremony or reception, giving them to your guests ahead of time with some colorful markers will allow them to decorate an write well-wishes on the outside of the sky lanterns, making it a much more personal and thoughtful experience for everyone involved.
Party Poppers in a Gift Basket
Party poppers are a staple celebration item that everyone will love! Whether your guests use them privately in their rooms or wait until the wedding reception, it’s hard not to smile when you pull the string, hear the “pop”. Confetti and streamers come pouring out of the party poppers! Nothing makes your day more magical than a little bit of mischief.
Wooden Roses in your Wedding Gift Baskets
Overall, wooden roses are an excellent and inexpensive alternative to real roses. Wooden roses make excellent gift basket fillers; allowing you to add color and charm while still giving your guests a souvenir to take home. Wooden roses are available in nearly any color imaginable, and they last pretty much forever unlike real, living, roses.
