wedding gifts

Selection of gifts for competitions at the wedding guests

All new­ly­weds want to make their wed­ding beau­ti­ful and unfor­get­table, and there­fore make every effort to orga­nize it. The cel­e­bra­tion can be remem­bered not only for deli­cious food, loud wish­es and dances, but also for mem­o­rable gifts that will be relied upon for par­tic­i­pat­ing in com­pe­ti­tions. Small gifts will become an addi­tion­al incen­tive to par­tic­i­pate in com­ic com­pe­ti­tions and will allow you to remem­ber the event for a long time.

Purpose of gifts

Some cou­ples do not con­sid­er it impor­tant to pur­chase sym­bol­ic gifts that will win at wed­ding com­pe­ti­tions. Some of them see it as a waste of mon­ey, while oth­ers do not see the point in small trin­kets. But it is with the help of these presents that you can diver­si­fy the cel­e­bra­tion and cheer the guests.

Any pro­fes­sion­al toast­mas­ter will offer the new­ly­weds to buy small sou­venirs for com­pe­ti­tions. After all, a wed­ding is not a place to save mon­ey. For many, such an event hap­pens only once in a life­time, and there­fore requires spe­cial orga­ni­za­tion.

Guests with a good sense of humor are able to appre­ci­ate com­ic sou­venirs from the new­ly­weds. For exam­ple, a strict-look­ing man may well be delight­ed with a baby rat­tle or a lol­lipop.

Usu­al­ly, the toast­mas­ter makes a list of gifts for all wed­ding com­pe­ti­tions. Each present has a sym­bol­ic mean­ing, which the pre­sen­ter announces upon pre­sen­ta­tion. This way of orga­niz­ing an enter­tain­ment pro­gram allows you to encour­age guests to par­tic­i­pate in com­pe­ti­tions.

Prize types

Gifts for com­pe­ti­tions at a wed­ding to guests can be of a tan­gi­ble and intan­gi­ble nature. Mate­r­i­al prizes require cash costs. In addi­tion, they can remind the own­er of the wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion for a long time. And intan­gi­ble gifts can­not be felt and they can be expressed in ver­bal con­grat­u­la­tions.

Con­ven­tion­al­ly, gifts can be divid­ed into sev­er­al groups.

  1. Stan­dard. These include small sou­venirs sym­bol­iz­ing the wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion. These can be mag­nets with the image of the bride and groom, angels or minia­ture bou­quets.
  2. Orig­i­nal. These can be choco­lates in a wrap­per with the inscrip­tion “thank you for being with us this day”, mem­o­rable pho­tographs of the young, per­son­al­ized match­es or can­dies with wed­ding inscrip­tions.
  3. The­mat­ic. They will be appro­pri­ate if the wed­ding is orga­nized in a cer­tain style. For exam­ple, if the cel­e­bra­tion is made in red and white col­ors, then the presents can have just such a com­bi­na­tion of col­ors.
  4. Humor­ous. They can be pre­sent­ed in the form of oral com­ic con­grat­u­la­tions or have a mate­r­i­al form.

When orga­niz­ing a wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion, it is impor­tant for the new­ly­weds to pur­chase gifts for the guests of valu­able val­ue. It is bet­ter to opt for one thing, because if one par­tic­i­pant is pre­sent­ed with a cheer­ful fig­urine, and anoth­er rhyme is told, then the gen­er­al mood of the cel­e­bra­tion can be spoiled.

traditional gifts

To facil­i­tate the process of choos­ing prizes for par­tic­i­pa­tion in wed­ding com­pe­ti­tions, new­ly­weds can pur­chase stan­dard sou­venirs. There is a cer­tain list of sym­bol­ic gifts designed to empha­size the impor­tance of the event.

Most often, small note­books, key rings, pens, rat­tles, lol­lipops and small toys are award­ed for par­tic­i­pa­tion in com­pe­ti­tions. Also, quite often at such events, you can get a prize in the form of a mag­net, a can­dle, fra­grant soap or a fig­urine.

In order not to waste a lot of time and effort search­ing for dif­fer­ent presents, the new­ly­weds can opt for bombs and bath salts. These prod­ucts can have a vari­ety of pack­ag­ing and fla­vor­ing, and there­fore each guest will get an indi­vid­ual present.

As prizes, cof­fee cups, tea­spoons, waf­fle nap­kins and soft toys are often used. The main thing is that these things have a fes­tive design. For exam­ple, a soft toy can be dec­o­rat­ed with a veil, and a spoon can have a fes­tive engrav­ing.

Sweet prizes are very pop­u­lar at the wed­ding. It can be lol­lipops, choco­lates, sweets, mar­malade or cook­ies. For beau­ty, they can be packed in bon­bon­nieres.

Unusual Options

With a strong desire, the bride and groom can cre­ate unusu­al sou­venirs for guests. Such prizes will help make the event unique and will remain in the mem­o­ry of the guests for a long time.

Small sketch­es cre­at­ed by the spous­es them­selves will look very unusu­al as a prize for par­tic­i­pat­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion. They can be framed or placed on a stand.

Mini-bot­tles filled with oil per­fumes, home­made soap and a set of spices will look orig­i­nal.

Even ordi­nary things can take on an unusu­al look with the help of the imag­i­na­tion of the new­ly­weds. For exam­ple, on a reg­u­lar notepad, you can change the cov­er, and write cute wish­es on post­cards.

For the female half of the guests, you can dec­o­rate com­pact mir­rors, and for the male half, you can engrave ball­point pens.

In order for guests to remem­ber the solemn cer­e­mo­ny for a long time, young peo­ple can dec­o­rate wood­en hearts by putting on them the full date of the wed­ding.

You can order antique keys, dec­o­rat­ing each of them with a per­son­al­ized rib­bon.

For wed­ding con­tests, it is appro­pri­ate to pick up com­ic gifts. These can be humor­ous medals that the bride and groom can inde­pen­dent­ly cre­ate on the Inter­net and print on a col­or print­er.

Errors when choosing

When choos­ing prizes for par­tic­i­pants in wed­ding con­tests, new­ly­weds can make sev­er­al mis­takes that will affect the event itself. For exam­ple, if the bride and groom buy the same gifts, they will sure­ly dis­cour­age the guests from par­tic­i­pat­ing in con­tests. After all, if you know in advance what present you will receive, then it will not be inter­est­ing to fight for the prize.

Anoth­er mis­take is the pur­chase of expen­sive sou­venirs. First­ly, such prizes will seri­ous­ly affect the finan­cial sit­u­a­tion of the spous­es, and sec­ond­ly, they can put con­tes­tants in an uncom­fort­able posi­tion.

It is also very impor­tant when choos­ing sou­venirs to take into account the sym­bol­ism of things. If among the guests there are super­sti­tious peo­ple, then some gifts may cause them grief. These include watch­es, sharp objects and mir­rors.

In no case should you buy sou­venirs that have reli­gious over­tones. Such things can offend the feel­ings of believ­ers, as guests may have com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent reli­gions or not belong to any of the reli­gions.

When choos­ing gifts for com­pe­ti­tions at a wed­ding, first of all, you need to think about the inter­ests of the guests. There­fore, it is eas­i­er to use a list of stan­dard prizes that will suit absolute­ly all the peo­ple present at the wed­ding.
