Thanking the wedding party

Top of the list is a special gift, often personalised, for the bridesmaids, best man, and groomsmen, to thank them for their support during the planning stages and their help on your big day.

Suggested gifts for your female helpers are jewellery, perfume and picture frames and for men cuff links, hip flasks, sports gifts and key rings.

Keepsakes or favours for your guests are often placed on the table as a memento of your special day. They could be personalised and reflect your special wedding theme. If a beach wedding was your theme you might place shell chocolates in a beautiful box with a thank you note. Candles, coasters and personalised bottles of wine are also popular gifts.

Thanking guests for your wedding gifts should be a top priority when you return from your honeymoon.

During the wedding it is important to keep a note of who gave what as you can't rely on memory.

When planning your stationery consider printed thank you notes to match your theme or hand write a personal letter.
