Look outside the box with smart ideas from corporate suppliers for gifts for your Best Man, Groomsmen, Bridesmaids and Parents. Most corporate companies are a fraction of the price of traditional wedding companies, and can turn around delivery really quickly, so check out some of the ideas below.
Some of the people who will contribute most to making your wedding such a special occasion are the bestman, groomsmen, bridesmaids and of course your parents. It is important to show them how much you appreciate all their time and effort, their help and support, both on the day and in the preparations for your wedding. A well-chosen gift can say ‘Thank You’ in so many different ways. However, to truly reflect the sincerity of your thanks, you may want to consider a gift that will be cherished for years to come. Long after flowers have wilted, chocolates eaten, spa treats worn off and vouchers spent, you want a gift to have an enduring appeal. An engraved gift can offer both longevity and a personal touch, as you can choose a message or dedication to remind them of a special moment or shared joke between you. If you combine the personalised message with a practical gift, you can be sure that the recipient will value the token long after your wedding day.
For bestmen and groomsmen, a set of silver plated cuff links, engraved with details of the wedding day or with a little message from you, can be used on the day itself and at special occasions – including christenings! – in the future. One gift item that always seems to go down well with men is an engraved tankard or hip flask. Tankards can be pewter, silver plated or crystal, all suitable materials for engraving your message.
Is your bestman a football referee or coach? Then why not get him an engraved whistle….? Not only can this be used after your wedding for coaching the local football team, but it can be used on the day to get guests’ attention to line up for photographs.
For bridesmaids and maids-of-honour, a silver plated purse mirror compact is an ideal gift – you know it will be used, and by personalising it with an engraved message it creates a shared bond between a bride and her closest friends. Another popular item for women is a heart-shaped silver plated keyring, which again combines a useful and practical item with a dedicated message from the bride or couple.
For both men and women, and especially for parents, a very popular gift is an engraved photo frame. They can be engraved with the date and details of your wedding, and then your favourite wedding photo inserted later, or you can wait for the photos of the Big Day to come back and then customise you engraved message to refer to a particular photo. Either way, an engraved frame makes a perfect gift for the most special people at your wedding.
