A wedding is a celebration of love, a day of hope, dreams and blessings for the bride and groom. Hence, wedding day wishes are a part of every wedding. Sometimes thinking outside the box and coming up with new ways makes it worth while and will truly mean a lot to the newly weds.
1. Make it a part of your wedding speech
Wedding speeches always consist of wedding wishes but the way you express it is very important. You could throw in an impromptu speech during the pre-wedding party and surprise everyone. You could also ditch the old cliches and narrate a story about the couple and tell everyone how the couple compliment each other.
2. Sing a song
You could sing one of their favorite songs and ask them to dance or surprise them by getting their favorite band to play live for them during their wedding. Believe me you will score a lot of points for your thoughtfulness.
3. Slide show
You could make a collage of their photos or better add some pictures of their childhood and mention something interesting about the couple in your slide show. Add some lovely music to those pictures and, in the end, you can add your own video recording to wish the couple.
4. Create a wedding banner
Every wedding needs one, why don’t you put some thought and make one or at least share your idea with some professional who’d make it for you. Not a lot of guests do it, but if you are close to the couple a personalized banner displaying love shared between the couple would be a perfect way to tell the newly weds that you care for them.
5. Message in a bottle
Write a lovely long letter or a poem and insert it in a stunning glass bottle just like the good, old days. You could gift wrap it in a gorgeous box and make it decorative. The thoughtful content and the dolled up gift will definitely remain with the couple as a memorabilia.
6. Gift of their choice
Buying a gift isn’t boring. If you think the couple would enjoy a particular item and if you can afford it, you might as well buy it for them and leave a small note inside or on top of the gift. I am sure they would love the gesture. Buying something for their new home is also a great idea, most couples love gifts that are practical.
7. Tickets to travel
You could book a great vacation spot for the couple. Depending on your budget you could choose a package. If you don’t want to pick something fancy, but want the couple to know you care then you could book a weekend spa. Everyone loves a nice relaxation session, so a weekend getaway is a popular choice by most couples living in urban areas and it’s a great way to wish them.
Cards never go out of fashion. You can make one yourself or get a card and fill it in with your own words. What matters is what you say, not how you say it.
9. Gift Check
If you’re clueless about the wedding gift, then give them a check and let the couple buy what they want. Personalize the envelope and leave a handwritten note inside. The gift and the special words inside will never be forgotten.
10. Frame a photo
If you have a lovely photo of the couple, you could get it framed or make a collage of all the friends with the couple in it. You could leave a special note on the back of the frame. It’s a great idea. The couple would always keep it with them. When they ponder over their wedding day, they’ll glance over the note and reminisce each moment.
Always remember that a simple yet heartwarming gesture by friends and family makes wedding day wishes memorable for the couple.
