Popping the question with a personalised bespoke gift box
Ask with an ‘ask gift’
No, not that question. At this stage that question was asked and you had a delighted “Yes ” way back. Now you’re planning the big day.
The question we’re talking about here is the ‘asking your friends to be your bridesmaid/best man/groomsman’ one.
Back in the day you’d probably have taken the hoped-for best man or groomsman out for a drink. In recent years though, a new trend has emerged – that of the ‘ask gift’ or the personalised bespoke gift box.
Think about it. You’re expecting these potential members of the wedding party to take rather a lot on as you travel your wedding planning journey. Their involvement extends beyond the actual day itself. The pre-nuptial duties can include:
- Shopping with you for outfits
- Organising the stage/hen events
- Writing speeches
- Helping with planning
Then there’s the day itself:
- Having the ring safely ready
- Making speeches
- Schmoozing with guests
- Escorting and directing guests
- Holding your hand when you’re having a mild panic!
- Making sure everything is in its place
- Liaising with the event stylists if you have one
- Liaising with the photographer to get guests in place for photographs
- Keeping an eye on younger wedding guests
And much, much more.
It’s a big ask and a lot of responsibility. Which is why the ‘ask gift’ trend is a rather lovely way to show them that you appreciate just what you’re expecting of them. But it can be so much more than that. If you select a personalised gift then they have a lasting memento of the day too.
Cigars will get smoked, beef jerky and nuts will be eaten and soap washed with. So as fun and ‘manly’ a way to pop the ‘your services are required’ question as they are – they’re not a lasting memory.
And the same applies when choosing a female ‘ask gift’. You want your bestie or whoever it is you’re asking to be your bridesmaid to remember this day for years to come.
Personalised bespoke gift boxes
But here’s something that hits all the ‘ask gift’ buttons: a gift box that is personalised in and of itself but has a gift within that is also personalised!
One stone: two birds killed!
Choose a bespoke, personalised gift box and you’re halfway there.
There’s plenty of places on the Internet where you’ll find personalised gift boxes in every style and every material imaginable. But they’re often simply that: a box. You then still have to decide on what you’re going to put in it.
