Now, obviously, your wedding day should be all about you and your soon-to-be other half but it’s only fair that you spare a little though for all of your lovely guests. They’ve travelled all this way to see you look fabulous so the least you can do is give them a little reward for their efforts. That’s why wedding gift bags and baskets are such a good idea.
Seeing as you’re going to be pretty busy preparing to astonish them with your radiance and natural beauty, you might not get to see any one until after the ceremony. So a little trinket or two to occupy them until you blow their minds might not be a bad idea.
The other great thing about wedding bags and baskets is that you can put more or less anything in them. But it’s a nice idea to start off with a little note welcoming them to the big day.
From there, it’s all up to you. It could be a boozy treat to loosen them up before the show starts.
Or perhaps some little nibbles.
Since you’re in Portugal, why not a typically Portuguese treat – like a hand painted tile or some fancy sardines (but then again you might not want all guests smelling of fish so chocolate ones might be better).
A map or some useful info about the venue and destination always comes in handy too.
Basically, everyone loves free stuff, so be a bit creative and give your guests some lovely little presents. It’s a great way to start the day and get them in the mood.
And something to help them recover the next day is always appreciated.
