Happy February, friends!

Love is in the air. Here at Marisa Nicole Events, we are strong proponents of showing those you love how much they mean to you throughout the year. When it is your turn to get hitched, your wedding guests and bridal party will display an outpouring of love on you and it is important that you reciprocate that sentiment throughout your planning process. Many family members and friends will offer to help coordinate dress shopping outings, plan an event in honor of your wedding (engagement parties, showers, and bachelorette celebrations, oh my!), or even help stuff invites or craft DIY favors. We know it can be easy to get so caught up with planning for the big day that showing gratitude to your families and besties can sometimes be overlooked. To help you make sense of this whole “saying thank you” thing, we will be discussing wedding gifting etiquette over the next few weeks. There are two main groups of people that you will need to gift – your bridal party and your guests.

Next week we will share how to gift your besties (aka – bridal party members) to thank them for being a part of your special day, throwing celebrations in your name and helping you plan and prepare for the big day.

From there we will share our thoughts on gifting your guests that have traveled from near and far to witness your “I-do’s”.

Love is all about giving and we want to make sure you are thanking all the right people, in the right way, at the right time. To that end, please stay tuned next week for the second part to this series!
