You can admit it, you don’t want to be featured in one of those ”worst wedding gift ever” type of stories. So you’re shopping fiercely trying to find something for a wedding present for the happy couple, that isn’t too toaster-like and isn’t something so exotic that they’ll never use it, like his and hers electric dog brushes.
Another way to ensure your attendants feel special is to include a personalized gift card for each of them. You can usually do this at the store where you set up your wedding gift registry.
Actually, there are many fun and creative approaches a place card could feature. If you had your invitations professionally made by a company, you can ask them if they can make simple place cards for you, printed with your name as the bride as well as your groom’s name. Included also is the date and the ceremony and reception venue. You would just send them the list of your guests’ names and have it printed…no worries, they’ll just do their job!
If you are making your wedding invitations, again make everything match. You can easily do this and keep in mind that although the reception card does not need an envelope and you can just have a matching flat card cut to put your information on. You do not have to have an expensive folded card for this.
Some stores will even take the personalization of the gift cards further and create a card that has the names of the couple, the date of the marriage and even a computer generated rendering of the couple on the front. This isn’t a feature that is widely available, but its use is becoming more commonplace as more brides and grooms opt for the ”little something extra” in putting together their wedding gifts.
