For every element that goes into planning the perfect "I do" moment for couples, there is someone in the background finalizing the details. Wedding sponsors are special couples that are chosen by the bride and groom to be a special part of their wedding day by helping with planning details. To say thank you, the bride and groom will select gifts that are above and beyond what other members of the bridal party and family receive.
Digital Picture Frame
Wedding sponsors invest their own time and money into helping the couple-to-be have the wedding of their dreams. One way to say "thank you" is with a digital picture frame. Compile all pictures of the sponsor couple through the years along with those of the bride and groom. Choose images that capture moments of both couples in bliss. The sponsor couple will be reminded of the many ways that they have impacted the wedding couple prior to the wedding planning process each time they pass the photo frame in their home.
Each couple has a special interest that makes them tick. Gift clubs allow the bride and groom to give recurring gifts of wine, meat, coffee or other items that are of interest to the sponsor couple. Gift clubs can be given on a monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly or semi-annual basis. With each delivery the wedding sponsor couple is reminded of how grateful the bride and groom are for their hand in planning the wedding day.
Sensual Evenings Basket
Give the gift of love to a wedding sponsor couple with a sensual evening gift basket. Fill a medium-sized wicker basket with a combination of fragrant candles, massage oil and bubble bath. Next, add in wine and two wine glasses as well as a CD of romantic songs. Take the gift basket a step further by including silk robes for both parties or lingerie. Finish the basket with a sentimental note expressing gratitude for their help and wrap it in cellophane for a finished look.
Take the generic feel out of giving gift cards as a gift by choosing places that create the perfect date night for a wedding sponsor couple. Purchase a gift card for the local movie theater, miniature golf range or bowling alley along with a gift card for the couple's favorite restaurant. If the wedding sponsor couple has children, also include free childcare so that they are able to fully enjoy a free date night.
