It’s no secret that for all of those who are DIY-ing their wedding, fund allocation is not the only hurdle to overcome… Creativity is also a big deal and when you are not only planning but also making absolutely EVERYTHING, wedding fatigue can set in and a creative’s block is bound to happen, especially when the stress of getting married is added to the equation, that is, if the wedding that you are planning is your own.
So, if you have been wrecking your head about what to give your wedding guests as a thank you gift, here Urban Bride Chic will attempt to help you sort some of that out or at the very least, give you some wedding guests gift giving ideas.
If you are looking to give your guests something meaningful coming straight from the heart type of gift, there is nothing better that giving them something that you yourselves made. How about a simple to make homemade jam?
Everyone loves a sweet gift!
Below we have curated and added a couple of links to very simple recipes that you can use.https://www.urbanbridechic.com
Once you’ve made your jam and it is in their respective jars, the way to present it to your guests will be as follow.
Close the jars and make sure to wipe the outside of each jar with a damp clean towel, dry them and make sure that none of the jars are sticky from any spill-overs. Tie a string of your choice of color to the neck of the jar with tags that say thank you on them.
These tags are very inexpensive and easy to find at craft and office supplies stores or you can buy them on line.
We also found a place for labeling so your guests know what they are eating, ie: (strawberry jam or raspberry jam).
You could even add your names and wedding date to the label and a picture of you two if you wanted to. The possibilities are endless!
Often times you can find what you are looking for at “non-bridal” stores for a fraction of the cost!
Another awesome and very inexpensive idea would be to place ingredients ingredients for a favorite dish in a jar, minus protein of course!
If protein is required for the dish, you can add a note to the jar stating for example, chicken is required.
Your guests will not only leave happy and with their belly’s full but will be carrying with them, your tasty and very thoughtful gift for their dinner tomorrow!
But if these are not your “cup of tea” per say, you could make drink coasters from wood remnants such as from pallets, etc.
We sincerely hope that we’ve gotten your creative juices going and even if you don’t make any of the aforementioned DIY wedding guest giving ideas; we are sure that whatever you end up doing, will be magnificent!
Congratulations on your up coming nuptials!
