If you’re in the events and wedding industry, you know just how important it is to make the bride and groom feel extra special in the lead-up to their big day.
You will also know how likely it is that they will be attending several events and venues to choose their perfect location, catering and entertainment. A wedding is a personal and truly special time where all parties want to feel pampered and cared for – helping them to relax during the wedding planning process is a vital part of this.
Here are some great ways to use branded items and promotional merchandise to support your couples’ planning whilst promoting your company’s business and showing off your brand in the best light:
A Thoughtful Gift
When you are planning just how to make your venue or services stand out from the crowd you can be rest-assured that choosing the right gift for your couple will help them remember you as a thoughtful and conscientious professional who will ensure that they day goes off without a hitch!
If you’re looking for the perfect, personalised gift for the bride and groom to help them remember your business during the busy months of wedding planning then here are a few special suggestions that are sure to keep your venue in mind.
Engraved Wine Glasses and Champagne Flutes: What a perfect way to show that you care. They don’t have to be expensive to look beautiful and can come in gift boxes too. You could choose to have a personalised pair of cut-crystal glasses to include the couple’s names (a great anniversary gift too – see below) or opt for the more cost-effective option of having your venue’s logo engraved or printed onto multiple glasses, ready to give out to all of your prospective clients.
Stress Heart: If you’re on a bit more of a tight budget, never fear, for there are still plenty of great options to gift your couples when they come to view your venue or chat about your services. A stress item such as a heart or another stress shape which represents your business (why not a stress cake for a caterer or a stress balloon for an events company?) is a handy and quirky stress reliever for the bride in the run-up to the big day and a constant reminder of your brand too.
A Bespoke Wedding Journal: An essential part of any bride’s planning is a good wedding planner or journal. Choose from beautiful leather, high-quality PU, plastic, card or even wood covers for journals that are completely customisable and can, of course, include your company’s branding too!
Don’t Forget the Pen: A stylish branded pen to go with the journal is an absolute must to fully show-off your company’s logo. We recommend the beautiful Sinatra Ballpen in rose gold, which offers exceptional value without compromising on quality.
Save The Dates
Make sure the bride and groom know what else is on offer in the wonderful world of wedding paraphernalia. You can certainly help them to create beautiful save-the-date ideas such as magnets and other memorable gift items to complement their wedding stationery in the lead up to the big day.
If you are looking for beautiful, foiled invitations then may we recommend fellow Norfolk-based company, Dynamic Print for all your stationery needs. For larger print-runs then take a look at our Print Media page for plenty of fantastic options including leaflet printing, luxury business cards and much more.
Magnets: Make sure your couple’s Save the Dates remain in full view for months with a beautiful fridge magnet. This can include all the key details of the wedding day and are available in a wide range of sizes and materials.
Wooden Pencils: The perfect “pencil us into your diaries” gift to go alongside invitations. Cute and traditional, wooden pencils are ideal for a rustic-themed wedding.
Sowing the Seeds of Love: You can get a huge range of seeds which come in personalised packets or boxes – a beautiful idea to share with your clients for their Save the Dates or invitations. The seeds will grow into lovely herbs or wildflowers which guests can cherish for months to come.
All brides-to-be are on the lookout for a stand-out wedding favour. Help them along with a few of these fabulous ideas.
Sweets and Confectionery: How about an individually packaged box of two delicious Lily O’Brien Chocolates or lovely pralines in their own organza bag? We also offer fun, branded popcorn and candyfloss buckets for a more quirky approach!
Magnets and Keyrings: A lovely cost-effective favour to remind guests of the special day. Choose from rose-gold or chrome plated for extra sparkle.
Time for Tea!: If your clients are having an indulgent afternoon tea as part of their wedding day, why not offer personalised, branded boxes of tea or an engraved teaspoon with the wedding date as a sweet little wedding favour?
The Hens and Stags
Why not suggest some memorable ideas for your clients’ hen and stag dos – here are just a few.
Lip Balm and Mints: Say thank you to the hens with a lovely lip balm and mints duo – it will soon become a handbag essential and perfect for a night out on the tiles with the girls. Other great ideas include compact mirrors and hairbrushes as well as handbag essentials kits. Or, if it's a destination hen or wedding, why not choose personalised luggage tags?
Hipflask: What stag would say no to their own hipflask? These can be engraved with the date of the stag or anything else the groom would like – keep it clean, boys!
All caterers want to stand out from the crowd – exceptional food and service are, of course, key elements, but make sure your company name is remembered before, during and after the event with some extra special ideas to offer your clients.
Say it with Prosecco: Did you know you can get customised prosecco with a personalised label celebrating the big day? What a wonderful way to say thank you to your guests – they can choose to drink the prosecco at the reception or take it home with them. Guests could even put a candle in the empty bottle to make it into a lovely memento for their home.
Cupcakes: Perfect for the event itself, order branded cupcakes which can feature a logo, details about the wedding, a cute quote or even a photo of the happy couple. What could be more delicious?
Napkins and Tableware: An astounding selection of napkins, tablecloths, decorations, crockery and more are all available to show off your venue and brand at any occasion. High quality embossing, foiling and engraving will make sure that your catering stands out from the crowd and is truly memorable for the guests.
Ensure that the bride and groom have everything they need whilst promoting your business to boot!
USBs: USBs are a firm favourite with photographers and for good reason. They are a relatively inexpensive way to easily share photos with wedding guests (especially those without social media!) and can be presented to the bride and groom after their big day, ready to share out. The USBs could either be engraved or printed to include the wedding details or your own business details. A great alternative to a business card!
Selfie Frames: What wedding would be complete without a few selfies? These brilliant selfie frames can be personalised and include your company’s branding and will be sure to create eye-catching moments!
Show-stopping personalised decorations don’t have to cost the earth and can be great fun too!
Bunting: Beautiful, quality bunting which can include the couple’s names, the date or anything else you like!
Personalised balloons: Order balloons which include the bride and groom’s details for a cost-effective way to show off the venue space. Shaped and platinum balloons are all available to order.
