Some couples when we talk to them about the gift table still offer up the vision of a white bird cage or a dressed up box to collect their wedding envelopes. With the trend toward customizing every little detail possible we suggest you take this opportunity to ‘think outside the birdcage or the box’ if you will and search for something that might reflect your personalities a little more. Home Sense for example has a great selection of items that you wouldn’t immediately think OH! Gift table… but if you look at it after reading this post you might! The gift receptacle is something EVERYONE looks for at weddings. They want to drop their envelope or gift the second they arrive onsite and therefore this is something you should give a little more thought to as it will contribute to the first impression of your wedding day details.
- For a travel themed wedding use a suitcase or a globe. Set a display around these objects with things that can really enhance the look and feel you’re going for.
- For a nature lover consider using an assortment of (or just one) pots that you’d plant in and put an assortment of items you might find outdoors.
- For someone into high fashion check out some of the vintage hat boxes out there! Get some imitation pearls and drape them around, include some fascinators, or a hat stand to display some fun objects.
- For a music lover I’ve seen people use instrument cases or wrap boxes in music sheets.
