Winter Wedding Gift Guide

by

It’s the season of giving! From snow-covered landscapes to mugs filled with warm hot chocolate, winter is one of the most romantic and enchanted seasons of the year! More and more couples are now trading sunny and warm wedding dates for a snowy and cozy winter wedding.  

When it comes to tracking down the perfect wedding gift, there are many different approaches and rules of wedding gift giving. Some of the best gifts are the ones that aren’t found on the registry. It’s always a good idea to check the registry but if you’re looking for a gift that is more personalized, there’s always the opportunity to get creative. Here are a few suggestions that would be perfect for any couple getting married this winter, or any season!

For The Couple That Still Needs to Deck The Halls!
From finding the perfect dress to choosing the right wedding tuxedo rental, newlyweds often get behind on their decorating for the season. Help them celebrate their first Christmas together as a married couple with a snowman ornament that is festive and sentimental. Get creative with the wrapping of your wedding gift! Gift your present in a classic embroidered stocking that will look the part for decking the halls!   

For The Couple That Likes to Have A Drink…or Two!
Red or white? Let them decide as they drink out of beautiful and personalized wine glasses! Paired with one of your favourite recommended wines, couples will love seeing their initials or a favourite saying on these multipurpose glasses. Let the toast be to this next chapter and adventure!

Encourage the newlyweds to spend a night in and get cozy by the fire. Gift them with all the recipe essentials for a delicious hot chocolate and the coziest mug to pair. This is the perfect opportunity for them to curl up and watch their wedding video, or enjoy time together as they settle those post-wedding details.

For The Couple That Loves Adventure!
Give a gift they can use immediately! For couples heading on a honeymoon with hiking, tropical climates, or just a staycation, an engraved water bottle will come in handy. Engrave their name or a funny saying like, “This isn’t water.”

For The Couple With Home Renovations!
As they begin this next chapter in their lives, there are many more chapters to come! For some couples, that next step is purchasing their first home. Give them a tool that is multifunctional and perfect for any job! Engrave an inspiring quote about working hard or even their initials. This multipurpose tool is the perfect size to carry on-the-go or to quickly grab from a drawer for a quick repair.

For the Couple That Likes a Good Laugh!
Rather than sentimental, give the gift that is perfect for a laugh! Things Engraved offers custom bobbleheads that would be sure to make not only the newlyweds but all of their guests laugh as well. All it takes is a recent photo and you can give the newlyweds a gift that is completely their own. Perfect for a wedding topper or on the car dash, a custom bobblehead will be sure to bring a touch of their personality and a laugh as well!

Extra Tip
When it comes to choosing a wedding gift, it’s okay to stray away from the wedding registry. Make sure no matter what gift you choose, it’s personal and relevant. If you do choose a gift that isn’t on the wedding registry, give a small explanation in the card.  Explain why you think your gift would be perfect for them or a memory that your gift reminds you of them. The time and thought behind your gift will make the happy couple even happier.

How to Style Your Wedding

by

Think about the qualities that you love about your significant other. Maybe they love the outdoors just as much as you do, which creates a way for you to spend time together. Maybe they are the classic romantic type that makes you swoon. Whatever it is that makes the two of you “click”, you’re going to want your special ceremony and celebration to reflect this!

Choosing a wedding theme and colour scheme can seem daunting at first. What’s important is following your personal styles and picking something that resonates with you — the rest will follow. Love nature and the look of simple, natural details? Aim for a rustic glam theme and more earthy tones. Classic and a hopeless romantic, with a taste for geometric touches? Aim for an elegantly modern style with pastel colours to pair bold with soft.

To make it even simpler for you, here’s a list of tips (the Knot) on how to choose the colour scheme for your wedding:

  1. Match the setting to the colours OR the colours to the setting! Think about your preferred colour scheme, and then choose a venue that you are certain will match those colours. It helps to choose somewhere that is a “blank slate” like a converted barn or loft-style location. If your dream venue takes priority, think about colours that will compliment those surroundings. For example, if your venue has a lot of white walls and decor, lean towards more colour in your decorations to balance it out.
  2. Think about your decorating priorities. If you have a specific type of flower you dream of having at your wedding (like gorgeous bundles of purple lilacs), you’re going to want to adapt your colour scheme to match and use that essential detail as a starting point. The same goes if you have a specific coloured family heirloom accessory or decor. It’s much harder to try and fit things in afterwards if they don’t match the colours or style of your wedding!
  3. Consider the season. Certain tones work well for different times of year, like jewel tones for fall and softer blush tones for spring. Don’t let this dissuade you from you preferred colour theme, however! Bring in seasonal textures and use the colours you like, adapt them to the season with adjusted tones as you wish.
  4. Create a vibe. Think about the tone you want to set for your venue, whether you want a dramatic feel (use deeper and darker tones) or a more gentle atmosphere (use softer hues).
  5. Look to your favourites. What clothes, colours, and style of fashion do you typically choose? You can take a peek into your closet and around your home for some inspiration and a better idea of your taste.
  6. Take a peek at the colour wheel. There’s no strict rules here, but it can give you a better idea of colour pairings. A rule of thumb: colours opposite each other on the wheel are complimentary (they pair cool and warm, such as royal blue and golden yellow) and pairs right next to each other are similar (they share a primary colour, such as purple and pink). Try pairing a bright tone with a more neutral one, like turquoise and soft grey.
  7. Don’t overthink your colour scheme! Use it more as something to guide you, rather than a strict rule. Don’t feel pressured to have the “perfect” colours. Go with what suits your style and the mood you want to set, and the right colours will follow!
