Planning a wedding, or event with Sweetpea & Blossom is not just about organising the necessary formalities, it’s about identifying and sourcing the perfect luxurious finishing details. It’s the added touches that give your guests an elevated experience to that of a typical wedding, or event.
Personalised items always go down a storm as it really shows you have put thought into the guest experience and considered every single detail. Bespoke guest drawings as place cards like that of chic artist, Victoria Fitzroy, or personalised table napkins for the place settings to give an added level of luxury at the dining table. A feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
Welcome gifts for guests or in-room gifting to give a little indulgence is always a welcome gesture. For men, personalised cashmere socks or monogrammed pocket squares and for ladies, personalised perfume, candles or initial bracelets are the perfect treat. Choose items that have relevance to your day or event. A small posy of flowers in bedrooms to give a hint at your wedding, or event flowers. Scented candles that can be personalised for either the guests or the happy couple as a touching reminder and to bring back fabulous memories when used. To continue the scent have spritzed napkins for a hint of scent as the guests take their seats.
Leather luggage tags or passport covers with guests names or initials are another way to incorporate that luxe feel and is a fabulous token for guests especially for those attending a destination wedding. Sweetpea & Blossom love the surprise element of gifting for both guests and planning clients. Surprises along the planning process and on the wedding day gives a little thrill for those receiving the gifts. The unexpected is always a lovely surprise.
Recovery kits to help aid the hangovers the day after the night before… Bloody Mary kits, cashmere throws or rose filled bubble baths with gifted bubble bath to ease the dancing feet or sore heads.
For us as planners gifting is always a fabulous way to add the luxe to any event. For more wedding inspiration, visit www.sweetpeaandblossom.com.
