Undoubtedly, wedding pouches are often associated with wedding favours. However, the possibilities of how else to use them are endless. Here are just some of them.
Wedding favour bags – how can they enhance a wedding?
This is an extremely important day for a young couple and everything should be perfect and unique. Both in the organisation of a large or small wedding party there are decorative boxes and openwork baskets. Unfortunately, they are not very discreet and are quite often bulky. That’s why many couples opt for more subtle wedding favour bags. The choice of fabrics, colours and prints is huge making them a great choice for nice wedding favours for guests. They can easily be matched to any wedding style.
Young people often decide on colourful bags in accordance with the colours of their wedding party, for example, pouches with floral prints, white satin or delicate organza.
In recent years, there has been a growing popularity for rustic motifs. A bag for wedding envelopes made of linen or jute fits perfectly into this rustic trend. Thanks to the possibility of personalising the bags, we are able to print the bag with a motif that appears in other wedding decorations. Such details running throughout the wedding contribute to the creation of a beautiful wedding and reception.
What other uses can decorative bags have at the wedding? They are the perfect packaging choice for money, rice or confetti for showering the newlyweds!
Money bags for a wedding are not only elegant, they can also be used to collect envelopes and greeting cards given to newly married couples. So what other role can wedding gift bags have? Smaller sizes are ideal for storing small coins – a pouch for a penny for luck, rice or confetti. According to tradition, guests shower them with newlyweds just after leaving the Church or the Civil Registry Office. Items for showering the young are placed in a plastic bag, or are stuffed in pockets. Unfortunately, this can spoil this part of the celebration.
