Looking for ways to really wow your guests? Here’s 5 easy ideas to consider:
SEND UNIQUE INVITATIONS
Your wedding stationery is one easy and remarkable way to really set the tone for your wedding. So why not show off your unique celebration and style in the form of printed handkerchiefs from Benign Objects (pictured above)? Something as different and pretty is sure to capture your guests’ attention.
PRESENT YOUR FAVOURS IN AN APPEALING WAY
Whether you’re donating to a charitable cause in lieu of favours or treating guests to a simple treat, I strongly believe that presenting them in a respectable and pretty manner is one way to get your guests oohing and aahing. For example, plan on handing out fruit as your thank-you gift? Why not invest in pretty berry baskets like these ones from Shop Sweet Lulu? They’re eye-catching and won’t be easily forgotten.
SERVE GOOD GREAT FOOD
The key to any successful celebration is serving delicious food. To ensure your menu is up to par, be sure that everything being served is a reflection of your style, personality, ambiance and, of course, budget.
