Greetings GUESTS ASK:
Q. I'm invited to a wedding. The invitation arrived and with it a wish list and store register where the bride and groom came into the objects they want to receive.
S. I'm not planning to attend. Do I need to send a gift?
A. You don't need to, but sending a gift if you plan to attend is a nice gesture.
Q. Do I have to give an item chosen by the bride and groom?
One no! Although it is nice to help the couple acquire items that they have chosen, a unique gift can be equal and welcome.
Q. Do I have to buy from one of their bridal registers?
A. No. You can shop anywhere, even if the bridal record will inform you of which goods have already been purchased.
Q. Can I buy a gift for the wedding instead of the future?
A. Absolutely! To give the bride and groom get it in time for the wedding. In fact, it's a good idea because almost all the gifts used at the wedding are a well-made memorial.
Question: What would make a memorable gift for the wedding?
Any item that is personal with the bride's groom's first name and wedding date, such as: Resting Flutes, Cake Servers, Unity Candles, etc ...
One, some or even a whole collection of wedding accessories such as: Rusted Flutes, Cafe Servers, Unity Candles, Guest Books and Matching Pens, Protective Clothing, Ring Carriers, Hankies, Caketops etc ... But do not make it a surprise gift. Consult with the bride and groom to ensure that they do not have these items yet. If not, find out if they are planning a theme wedding and correspondingly or better than, let them choose the items.
Q. Can I shop online for wedding gifts?
A.Sure! Actually, this is the easiest way to engage the bride and groom, near or far, if you need their input when choosing a gift for the wedding.
Online shopping is your most convenient way to get unique gifts that may not be available in stores.
Ideas: Personalized wedding gifts, personal lights, etc. When shopping online, a mouse click or a phone call from your home or office, you can buy, gift boxes, attach a personal gift card and send a gift directly to the couple.
Question: Should I bring my gift to the wedding venue?
A. Preferably not!
Most wedding venues do not provide security. Thus, gifts can be easily damaged or misplaced or, sadly, taken. The bride and groom are very busy and excited to worry about collecting gifts. Thus, some gifts can be easily left behind.
Q. How do I make sure the bride and groom receive my gift?
A. Send the gift to the bride's address, the groom or the address of the RSVP envelope that came with the wedding invitation.

GUESTS FOR GUESTS FOR GUESTS
S. It has become commonplace to present your wedding guests with wedding favors to thank them for helping you celebrate your big day.
Actually, merit should be versatile.
ideas: insert cards in small frames, insert place cards in silver hangers, order personal pens and each keep the pen after you have entered your guest book, add a dessert (candy, nuts, cake etc.) in a memory case, etc. .. Assign one of your attendants to announce that these are thanksgivers from the bride and groom.
S. We plan to give our guests memento thank you gifts.
Question: Should we also send them thank you notes?
A. Absolutely! Each guest gave you a gift in person. Most guests thought about what to download and buy, submitted and delivered to you on or before your wedding.
You must acknowledge their efforts individually with a thank-you report.
S. We have a big wedding party. When we add both sets of parents, grandparents and some other relatives, we come up with more than 10 men and more than 10 women. We are on a budget. Giving each a great gift is prohibitive but we don't want to give "cheapy" gifts.
Q. Can you help?
A. We hope so! You need to consider your budget when choosing your gifts but you don't have to go up gifts you like. Always remember that some creativity and thoughtfulness can go a long way. If you are creative, you can put together gifts from the heart. Write or rite someting specially and place it in a frame. find small things that will be appreciated by a sports enthusiast, stamp collector, a garden buffet, etc ... and make small gift baskets. Your thoughtfulness will be appreciated by the recipients.
Otherwise, you choose two gifts - one for the men and one for women - and buy them in bulk. Many retailers give you a spread of quantity based on quantity - if you ask them.
This will help keep your costs down and save time as well.
If you shop on-line Email a note to online sellers ask if they can give you a break to buy the X number of the same. They may not offer it, but some may consider doing so when requested. We at the A wedding day do it.
S. Be aware that due to the way in which internet shopping carts are set up, the discount will not be displayed on your online confirmation. The vendor must deduct the discount when you charge your credit card and must send e-mail to the amount actually charged. It should reflect your cost after the price reduction.
Question: When is the best time to present our thanksgiving gifts to our parents, grandparents, and wedding mates?
A. You can do it at the rehearsal dinner because of the intimate setting with your family and close friends. Or you can choose to present each one in a private environment where you can express your gratitude individually for each participant.
