Will You Be My Bridesmaid?


When I think of the most important girls in my life, the ones who come to mind are those who have been there for me and shown me their support through anything life throws at me.  I have close friends who are there for me through everything, and I’m right there for them as well. Your wedding is a day you look forward to for months (for some, even years!) and what better way to celebrate than with the most important ladies in your life?

It’s a special moment when you ask your girls to be in your wedding party. If any of you have had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid or maid of honour, or have been the bride popping the question to your closest friends, I’m sure you’d agree. You can commemorate this moment with a unique matching gift.

For those ladies at your bachelorette party, a very appropriate gift for this event and for the gals who are helping you celebrate is our engraved Swig wine cups (below). Classy and customizeable for each girl in your wedding party.

To create a lasting memory and a lovely accessory for your friends, personalized necklaces do the trick. You can put their name on the front and the date on the back, or anything you can dream up. These gifts serve as not only a memento of the day, but also as a sweet token of your friendship.

Gifting the special girls in your life a sweet thank-you for sharing this important time is a great way to commemorate the celebration and create a cherished memory. You can browse more gift ideas on our website!

Branding Your Gifts using #UniquifyYourWedding


Wedding season is in full swing, and customers have been loving our custom wedding logos. While we are encouraging you to #UniquifyYourWedding with these designs, of course our logos aren’t limited to weddings. Our customers have been getting creative by using them for other gift-worthy milestones, such as for an anniversary gift (like shown above) or just a personalized present for that special someone.

Here are some more ways that customers have used our logos on gifts:

Alternative Guestbook Ideas


Nowadays, I’m blown away by how creative people are getting with weddings. One can quickly fall down the Pinterest rabbit hole of DIYs, themes, colour schemes, proposals, bridesmaid dresses, gifts etc., I know I have! However, it is also a great source to catch up on the latest trends, alternative options, do-it-yourself cost saving options, and updated forms of many timeless wedding ideas.

A current trend I’ve seen a lot of is taking a new spin on the classic guestbook. The so-called “alternative guestbook” is completed by coming up with an activity that your guests can participate in which in turn creates a beautiful looking memento for you.

One of these ideas is a see-through glass box (our Card/Note Box is shown above) in which guests can write messages on paper and place them in the box. As the box fills it not only looks beautiful, but it contains loads of well wishes from the couples’ loved ones which is a lovely keepsake.  A great idea to spice up the look of this “alternative” guest book would be to use different colours of paper or even textured papers (gold, rustic, etc.) to give the box even more charm and to match your wedding colours or theme.

Another idea could be having your guests write their well-wishes directly on a themed display. Since this idea is more simple, you can set up the table around it to be nicely designed. Use the wooden Happily Ever After wall plaque (shown above), customized with your name and wedding date, for the more sentimental couple.

To take the more whimsical route, check out our Wedding Wish Jar (above): a complete kit for leaving sweet dreams or wishes for the newlyweds. Included is the jar itself, a roll of wish cards, and a pen. A great idea is letting the jar fill up with the wishes, and then opening the jar on your first anniversary as a couple for a special gift of love to yourselves.

Of course, a classic guestbook and pen set will do the trick too but perhaps you’re looking for alternatives to the traditions; either way, we can help make your day JUST as you wish!
