Welcome to Natalie’s Blog…
IS EVERY WEEKEND A ‘WEDDING WEEKEND’ FOR YOU?
If you are in the business of hosting Weddings and other Celebrations or you supply Wedding & Party services, such as planning, catering, clothing and decoration, gifting, photography and music, you probably watched the Royal Wedding even more closely than most.
The Royal Wedding was a wonderful spectacle, beautifully choreographed and managed… with careful consideration given to what Harry & Meghan wanted, balanced with what was expected by their families, tradition and the demands of the world’s media.
We can’t be sure how all the couple’s family and friends were invited, or what gifts and Wedding favours were given to chapel guests during the Wedding celebrations and afterwards…
However we do know the 2640 members of the public invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle were given a Royal Wedding gift bag bearing the initials “HM”, as well as the date and venue for the Wedding and with various personalised favours and gifts inside.
The tradition of giving Wedding favours, small gifts given as a gesture of appreciation or gratitude to guests from the bride and groom, is a very old one.
However today personalised Chocolates and Sweets in individual wrappers, with personalised messaging and options for Single or Full colour printing, are now the favours and gifts of choice for modern Weddings and Celebrations.
If you are a Wedding or Party venue or a supplier to an event there are a number of ways personalised Chocolates and Sweets will be of interest to you and your customers, including:
* For promoting your Wedding or Party venue or event services, such as catering, music, photography etc.
* For announcing the Wedding or Celebration to those who might attend… perhaps as an initial fun request to “save the date” or as part of the formal invitation.
* For welcoming Wedding or Party guests to the celebration and to thank them for attending.
* For marking the special event with personalised messaging featuring photographs, images, graphics, greetings, and names and dates.
As a Wedding or Party venue or supplier you might use personalised Chocolates and Confectionery as a unique selling point, differentiating yourself from competitors by offering them to your customers as part of their event package.
You could even make the offer of free (or heavily discounted) personalised Chocolates or Confectionery to all customers booking your facilities or services… an ‘added value’ gift to help them celebrate with their guests.
Whatever your needs… Delvaux can help!
