For A Memorable Wedding It's The Little Things That Count
(ARA) - Many brides-to-be have an instant, almost knee-jerk reaction to a marriage proposal - shopping. Almost immediately, many of the newly engaged will head out to department stores and bridal boutiques to begin the search for the perfect gown and veil. While these purchases may certainly be the most memorable of the wedding shopping experience, it's details, such as wedding accessories, favors and bridal-party gifts, that make the event memorable for all those involved.
"Many wedding goers may not remember what the bride was wearing but, can't seem to forget the clever centerpiece on the table or the cake topper," said Margaret Powers, executive director of events and merchandising for Enesco. "The right accessories and bridal gifts can make a wedding both unique and memorable for all that attend and can also serve as lifelong keepsakes."
Once the wedding is over, all that is left are the memories. To make the occasion last forever for the bride and groom and guests, Powers suggests shopping for wedding accessories that have special meaning and help mark magical moments.
"When shopping for wedding accessories, like the cake topper, cake cutter and centerpieces, look for items that reflect your personal style and will create a lasting impression," said Powers.
Cake toppers have evolved from the traditional statuesque bride and groom of yesterday to flowers, collectible figurines and momentos. If remembering the special day is important, Powers recommends purchasing a figurine or other type of collectible to be used as the cake topper that can later be displayed in the home. The "Always and Forever" figurine - a fine porcelain, miniature bride and groom detailed in roses from the Pretty as a Picture Promises of Love Collection - can double as the perfect cake topper and wedding keepsake.
Other unique wedding accessories that can help to preserve the moment in time are toasting glasses, invitation holders and cake cutters and servers.
Throughout the engagement and wedding planning, bridesmaids, groomsmen and family members lend a helping hand. Without these key loved ones, many brides and grooms would be lost. It's important to acknowledge this devotion by presenting memorable bridal party gifts.
Powers suggests giving each person involved in the wedding something that will reflect appreciation and special meaning for the day. Photographs with each person in the bridal party helps capture the moment. Display each picture in a memorable frame to make a lasting impression on special friends and family members. The Pretty as a Picture Promises of Love Collection picture frame, detailed with porcelain photo tabs and roses as well as the Promises of Love miniature bride and groom, is a memorable way to display wedding moments.
Other gift suggestions for the bridal party include keepsake figurines to help mark special friendships. Enesco's Pretty as a Picture Collection offers "Friends To Last A Lifetime," a fine porcelain figurine of two girls with shopping bags in hand, sharing moments of friendship.
Everyone loves to bring home a wedding momento. Whether it's a bouquet of flowers in a keepsake vase, or a small take-home token, wedding favors truly are "favored."
Powers suggests adding to the fun of the evening by letting a lucky guest from each table, take home the centerpiece. Whether it's a beautiful vase that is filled with flowers or a candleholder with a fragrant candle it will certainly be a remembered gesture. The matching vase and candle holders in the Pretty as a Picture, Promises of Love Collection, offer brides and grooms an ideal centerpiece while adding charm and style to the reception.
When guests bring home a favor or centerpiece from the wedding that matched the cake topper and other wedding accessories, it is guaranteed that they will remember the "look" of the evening for years to come.
The Pretty as a Picture Collection is based on the well-known black and
white portraits of children imitating adults by world-renowned German photographer
Kim Anderson. Each figurine in the Pretty As A Picture Collection is
hand-crafted and painted in tones of black and white with a touch of color,
