Working directly with our incredible bride, Alexis, the goal for her custom welcome gifts was to create a gift box full of the couples' favorite snacks for their out-of-town guests after postponing their 2020 October wedding to November 2021 due to the pandemic. Alexis also worked one on one with Bella Giornata Paper Co. to create beautiful gift tags and itineraries that included sweet nods to the couples' love of music which played a HUGE part of their wedding: Alexis and Michael, who are both incredibly talented, serenaded their guests, and each other on the big day....talk about romantic!
Let's talk about The Gift:
We knew just what to do to create an awesome welcome gift for Alexis and Michael. In an effort to keep the gift elevated and cohesive, we repackaged the cherry gummies, that came in plastic packaging, into glass jars with gold lids that complimented the gold in the Perrier cans.
(Pro tip: When repackaging food, ALWAYS make sure the ingredients are visible and exact)
Next, we included Lukes Truffle Chips that I may or may not have ordered an extra case for myself--yes, they are THAT good. The final touch included two fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, from The Sugared Almond Company, packaged in a clear cello bag and tied with a music note charm to include a sweet musical element!
For packaging we used a disposable white tuck top box, tied with a beautiful, satin burgundy ribbon, gift tag and an everlasting floral bundle that included boxwood and miniature roses (we didn't snag a picture of the florals but trust me when I say they were gorgeous!).
I just love sharing the same enthusiasm about gifting with our couples and working with Alexis on these was a dream--she knew what she wanted, was open to suggestions and we were able to create really beautiful welcome gifts for hers and Michaels guests.
From Alexis: "Alexandra, thank you for adding that extra special touch for our wedding day. Everyone loved the boxes!!! They were beautiful and delicious."
Congratulations Alexis & Michael!!
