The 2018 wedding season has already begun! Whether you’re a guest or well-wisher, it’s time to start thinking about the kind of gift you want to give the happy couple.
If you’re looking to step outside the typical wedding gift box but still bestow a memento with meaning, we’ve got you covered! Use these embroidery tips to create special something that stands out from the typical registry items for the newlyweds.
Keep personal details in mind
The extra personal touches you add to your gifts are what will help them be remembered fondly long after the big day is over. Ask yourself questions like the ones below to determine what sort of personal details about the couple can be added to your designs:
- Where did they meet?
- What did they do on their first date?
- Do they have a favourite activity or pastime they participate in together?
- How would they describe one another?
After you have a list of answers, you’ll be surprised by the details that emerge! Use your creativity to bring them to life – whether it be through design elements like graphics or symbols, or simply through your choice of Embroider Buddy® stuffed animal.
Avoid unnecessary clutter
Although personal touches are important, try to keep your final designs free of unnecessary clutter to ensure you highlight the most important aspect – the newlyweds!
Try adding a monogram, a decorative design detailing the couple’s new shared last name and anniversary date, or a touching excerpt from their vows. All elements look fabulous when added to any Embroider Buddy® product, but we especially love the effect it gives to Embroider Buddy® Pillows.
Many modern couples shy away from the black-tie weddings of yesterday, instead turning to fun and relaxed ceremonies and receptions that let their personalities shine!
Colour and fonts are two design elements that are sure to help you “up” the fun factor when it comes to your customized gift. If you really want to wow them, create your designs using a colour that matches their palette for the big day! We hear dusty rose and lavender are favourites for this year.
We can’t wait to see what designs you come up with for the 2018 wedding season! Share your finished projects with us on Facebook and Twitter to help inspire other members of the Embroider Buddy® family.
