You’re down to the wire. Most everything is planned, ordered, fitted and confirmed. Wedding favor ideas and choices have probably come in to the mix somewhere in the previous weeks for the wedding reception and considering that the nuptials are occurring in the ‘Month of Love’ you may have chosen a theme having touches of red or hearts.
Often you may have additional pre-wedding evenings, parties, events, family & friend dinners etc. planned closer to your wedding date where you’d like to express your thanks to all in a small way as they leave the occasion. Keeping with the Valentine’s theme we’ve found some great inexpensive ways for you to share your love and thanks with a small yet memorable momentum. You may choose to give a small gift to each person or one per couple.
These adorable red velvet cupcakes individually wrapped in a cellophane bag (found at any craft store) would certainly be an appreciated treat. They can be easily made with a gluten free cake recipe and red colouring for any guests with gluten intolerances. Consider placing the cupcake on a tiny coloured paper plate to avoid smudging and tie off the bag with red ribbon for an added touch.
2. Deco Candy Apple!
Everyone seems to love a candy apple whether it be with the traditional red candy coating or be one of the super-deluxe gourmet ones you now see covered in chocolate and caramel. Add some of your creative pizazz to the stick with a red rose – like the picture, a small thank you tag or a simple red ribbon.
3. Charm Them!
If it’s a girls evening you could consider a small charm for those attending. Many girls already have charm bracelets for the little momentum but if not the charm could easily be put on a chain or chord. It’s a simple yet meaningful way of having them remember your evening together before the wedding.
4. Functional & Themed!
If planning an occasion for both ladies and guys you may wish to consider what traditionally has been considered a ‘guy gift’ that both he and she will find useful. This one not only has the red colour we were hoping to have but also a tiny red heart commemorating the love your share.
It’s a lovely touch to end a special evening prior to the wedding with a little gift. It doesn’t have to be big and extravagant. Just a token to let your guests know how much you appreciate their love, friendship and support just before the wedding.
Have a great day from Eventastic!
