Top 10 Alternative Wedding Gifts for the Couple That Has Everything!

Written by , Posted in Favours & Gifts, Sponsored Posts

Top 10 Wedding Gift Ideas for the Couple that Has Everything with ZankyouI always struggle to think of unique and original ideas when it comes to wedding gifts for couples.

I love giving gifts and when it comes to birthdays, Christmases and anniversaries I try to put as much thought into them as possible, but wedding gifts for couples always have me stumped! In the end I usually return to the terribly unoriginal idea of money or vouchers. Whilst I think there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, I want to be able to give gifts that are something to remember, a reminder of their journey into wedded bliss.

So with the help of alternative gift list Zankyou, we have created this list of 10 fabulously original Wedding gift ideas. You will NEVER be stuck for ideas again!

Top 10 Wedding Gift Ideas for the Couple that Has Everything with Zankyou1. Rent a Car for a Honeymoon or Road Trip

We have all witnessed the classic scene, just married and driving into the distance followed by a cluster of cans. What if you could drive away in your dream set of wheels completely funded by the guests who just showered you with rice and confetti? Now it’s so easy to crowd fund whatever you want. Doesn’t that beat a spare toaster and an overly expensive set of ‘his and her’ towels?

2. Contribute with a Charity Donation

In this very materialistic world that we live in, it’s easy to get carried away adding items to your gift list that you really don’t need. Maybe you would prefer your guests to donate their contributions to a charity that’s close to your heart. Many people already donate every month to a charity of their choice, so a bulk payment from your guests with wedding favours thanking them for doing so, is a lovely and selfless way of doing it.

3. Take Lessons Together

Lessons are such fun couple activity, not only will you learn something new, you may discover a new lifetime hobby that you can continue to do together? Diving, Dance, Cooking, Massage and Guitar lessons are just a few ideas of the type of lessons you could try your hand at.

I’ll be honest, when I think about thanksgiving the colours that instantly spring to my mind are oranges, browns, and mustardy hues but as you know, here at Bespoke Bride we love to go bold and bright! So when it came to decorating our Thanksgiving table this year we just knew we had 2 main themes we wanted to style with; Geometric (obviously!) and bright.  And so, we got to work! Everything you see in this video was created using an AMAZING Cricut Explore , the only things we bought were the giant balloons and the flowers!

This geometric theme would also be absolutely fantastic for a wedding table scheme, to create it yourself you’ll need your Cricut then you can find the beautiful hair crowns here, the geometric favour boxes here and the geometric shapes and letters can be made by yourself in the Cricut Design Space, we just used vinyl for the balloon quote and the cardstock for everything else! How easy and pretty is that?! A DIY lovers dream table!

We’ll be showing more of what we got up to at our Thanksgiving dinner with some of our blogger babes on Thursday so stay tuned! xx

Stylish, Intimate Family Picnic Wedding: Courtney & Cosmo

Written by , Posted in Real Weddings

Stylish, Intimate Family Picnic Wedding (28)

I have been so excited to share this wedding with you guys today! First lets talk about this brides style! She didn’t have just one but two dresses. The first was a pretty and chic floral number and the second, a seriously sexy red dress. Next we should talk about the couples awesome choice of venue which was a very cute little library in Westminster and finally, the best part (in my opinion!) was the couples choice to ditch the normal reception ideas and head to Hyde park with family and friends instead for a picnic – perfect! Oh did I mention, this whole event was planned in just 6 weeks!!! Seriously, there is so much more I could talk about, but instead, I am going to let Courtney fill you in on the rest of the details…
