Non-edible Thank Yous:

  1. Scented candles: Choose scented candles with a romantic aroma. They provide not only a pleasant scent, but also cosiness in your home.
  2. Plantlets or Flower Seeds: Give your guests a small plant, such as a succulent or a flower seed in a pretty pot. This symbolises the growth of your love.
  3. Personalised key rings: Have key rings made with your names and wedding date. That way, your loved ones will always carry a memento of your special day with them.
  4. Same Day Prints from the Photographer: Give your guests the opportunity to receive a beautiful photo print taken on the same day. This will ensure your guests have a tangible memory of your wedding.

Other Thanks:

  1. Thank you Notes: Write a personalised thank-you note to your guests and give it to them in a beautifully designed envelope.
  2. Wedding Favor Bags: Create a gift bag with a mix of some of the above thank yous. This gives your guests the opportunity to choose something for themselves.

No matter which thank you gift you choose, the most important thing is that it suits you as a bride and groom and conveys your gratitude and love to your guests. Add a personal touch to the thank yous to make them extra special. Your guests will undoubtedly remember how wonderful your wedding was and how grateful you were for their presence!
