Not Sure What to Gift Your Favorite Bride and Groom?

Ever sat there and wondered, what in the world can I gift my favorite and bride and groom? A cheesy memento? An embroidered dish towel? Or just something lame off their registry? Well have you considered their gift could be a wedding vendor?

Oh yes, you can do that!

Over the years I have seen the most amazing outpouring of love to brides and grooms, but none has felt as personal and as special to me as the times when someone in their lives has given me – a wedding planner/coordinator – to them as their wedding gift. Just recently I had a best man contact me to inquire about my services as a day-of wedding coordinator. His best friend and his fiancee are getting married at The Inn at Erlowest in April and as his best man he wanted them to have the greatest wedding gift of all time – a sure fire way to have a stress free and unbelievably good wedding day. This best man has since contracted with me and I am on board to make the bride and groom’s dreams a reality. It may seem like a rare occurrence but this is not the first time I have been hired as a gift to some very special brides and grooms. For the last 5 years of my business I have had countless moms and dads gift me to their children and employ me to take the reigns on their wedding planning, their wedding day, or a combination of the two. Even this past year I had a bride of mine from 2009 pay for me to be the coordinator of her little sister’s wedding this past fall (see the photo above of both happy couples with their happy wedding planner!). Nothing in this world gives me greater pleasure and joy than to be selected as the gift for a bride and groom – it’s honestly the coolest feeling ever! So if you are wondering what to give that special couple who seems to have everything, why not give them the assurance of a “perfect” wedding day? It’s the gift I’m sure they won’t look to return or give back after all is said and done. 🙂

Congrats to my newest couple Becky and Justin and thank you to Chris (their best man) for gifting me to your best friends. I am so excited for your big day!!

Happy planning,

Shannon
