I adore fun, clever and pretty things. Who doesn’t, right? Today we explore 3 ways to build wedding fever with customized products that everyone can have fun with.
I have been using Meeble Mail for about a month now and am shamelessly smitten. I was lost in Email Stationery Heaven for a good hour over at Meeble Mail’s site and I am pretty sure you will be too. The concept is super clever and simple: anyone who has web-based email (yahoo, gmail, hotmail, AOL) can purchase a custom stationery design for a mere $4.99 per year. Go to their site where they have a multitude of design options, create your own stationery, add the bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar and voila! You are ready to send emails in style. YOUR style. Here’s a sample of a brand new wedding design that is customized with a monogram:
And since I cannot contain my love for this product, here’s one of my own stationery designs
As far as I’m concerned, this is a perfect wedding party/best friend/MOB gift. It’s low cost and you can purchase gift certificates too! Best of all, there are so many designs to choose from everyone will find something that suits their style; you will see some big name designers featured at Meeble Mail such as Trina Turk, Lela Rose and Hammocks and High Tea. Have fun emailing…
Another beautiful and elegant way to add a personal touch to your wedding is with Lisa Leonard Designs– she makes bouquet charms, hand-stamped tokens, hand-stamped forks and more.
What I especially like about the forks is that they are something you can use on your anniversary or simply for every single meal for the rest of your happily married life!
And finally, for the most welcome and practical gift of all: money! But why give a standard gift card when you can customize a VISA gift card at Gift Card Lab? These make perfect wedding party gifts (customize the cards with a wedding party pic), thank you’s (give parents a thank you gift card with a picture from the wedding on it- they will LOVE this) or as a tip for your wedding vendors who went above and beyond to make your day fabulous. Here are just a few samples of customized cards:
Gift Card Lab CEO Dave Jones shares his “3 Tips for Giving Cash Tastefully”:
1. Use Photographs- Take your gift to the next level by including photographs with the cash or giftcard. Photographs bring meaning to the gift and communicate that you put thought into a gift above and beyond writing a check. CardLab allows you to add a photo of you and/or the bride and groom to a giftcard.
2. Personalize- Give a gift that truly means something through personalization. Gift CardLab allows wedding attendees to personalize a giftcard, leaving the bride and groom with both cash and a gift that means so much more.
3. Pair the cash with something else– Come up with a creative way to present the cash outside of the typical “card and cash” combo. Affix it to a bottle of wine or stick a check inside of an “Advice for Newlyweds” book.
As a wedding guest, you can purchase a gift card that is wedding themed since most likely you won’t have their images to use before their wedding. If you still want to customize a gift card for the bride and groom, how about using a picture of the couple’s honeymoon destination or your own wedding picture?
I am loving these ways to make wedding gift giving personal- hope you are too!
