If you’re planning a wedding, you might want to think about ordering souvenirs for your guests to take home with them on their way out of your wedding reception venue. D.I.Y gifts are hugely popular these days, and more and more couples are choosing to go with souvenirs on the quirky and creative side. Whether you and your fiancee will be making your own souvenirs or not, finding suppliers for wedding souvenirs can be done with the click of a button through Get Hitched. Here are 5 ideas that you might want to keep in mind when planning your wedding – there’s sure to be something that both you and your guests will love!
1. Essential Oils
Scents can be powerful and therapeutic, and take you back to the memory of your special day. You can bottle essential oils in miniature bottles with tiny labels with brown string and hand-written thank you’s, or go for scented “melts”, which are heart shaped wax oils which, when melted, emit the beatiful aroma of your chosen fragrance, filling the room with a calming scent. This option is sure to have your guests thinking of your Special Day long after the date!
2. Mini Liqueurs
Small bottles of liqueurs are very easy to come by, and are sure to be well received by your wedding reception guests! How about choosing a local liqueur such as Prickly Pear or Honey? You can also look out for independent wineries who can bottle their reserve wine into small bottles. You can even get special labels printed to stick onto the tiny wine bottles with your names and the date of your wedding!
3. Handmade Soaps
The amazing thing about handmade soap is that it definitely won’t go to waste! Your guests are bound to be impressed by homemade soap, with rich scents like sandlewood or rose-petal. Making soap is an art that small businesses take up and excel in, and are very easy to locate through Get Hitched. There’s nothing more relaxing than the smell of soapy bubbles or a handmade luxury bath bomb.
4. Candy Treats
Everybody loves sweeties and chocolate from time to time, and you can leave candy souvenir packages down to the capable suppliers in Malta! You can choose your own mix of candy treats, be it old-skool gummy love hearts to luxurious silky chocolates. You can also D.I.Y it and fill large bowls with chocolate or Love Hearts to place on tables for guests on their way out, with hand written signs saying to help themselves!
5. Local Honey
Honey is sure to leave a sweet taste in your guests’ mouths! Hand labelled and dated, mini jars of honey or preserves like jam or marmalade are a cute idea for wedding souvenirs. There’s something very wholesome about taking home a jar of something sweet like strawberry jam or honey. You can display the jars in a farmhouse style “shabby chic” piece of furniture, which will add to the homespun effect!
6. Charity Donation
A souvenir with a difference! If you’d prefer not to go down the souvenir route, you can make a donation to the charity of your choice instead. Between you as a couple, there’s bound to be a charity close to your hearts. You can let your guests know about your decision by placing a cute sign at the reception of your wedding reception venue, so they’ll be sure to understand and respect your decision!
