When you’re first planning your wedding it’s the big things that come to mind: an amazing venue, your dream wedding dress and the rings you’re going to wear everyday here on in, but in the busy bustle of wedding planning the little things can often get forgotten until the last minute (and little things add up to a lot). At Create Gift Love we specialise in handmade personalised keepsakes to celebrate life’s special moments, and surely there are none more special than your wedding day. In this blog post we’re going to share three of our favourite personalised wedding styling accessories and finishing touches you may have missed so you can add them to your wedding checklist today.
Why choose personalised finishing touches?
Your wedding is a day to celebrate you and your partner, what makes you both unique, and all the wonderful things that contribute to your relationship - so why have a wedding day that looks just like someone else’s? Pinterest and wedding magazines are a great place to start for wedding styling inspiration but so many ideas can quickly seem overdone and cliché to the point where inspiration isn’t so inspiring anymore. If you want to have a wedding day that is a real reflection of the bride and groom, personalised touches can make all the difference.
Our handmade weddings styling accessories are made-to-order in the UK from luxury quality, sustainably sourced materials and personalised with thoughtful touches like secret printed messages and gold foiled initials to make your day more you. As well as beautiful personalised keepsakes to remember the day after it’s over, we have a range of designs perfect for decorating your day, from the wedding morning through to the ceremony and reception. Read on for our three favourite personalised wedding styling accessories from Create Gift Love.
You’ve chosen the wedding rings, given someone special (and trustworthy!) the responsibility of being ring bearer, but how are you carrying the rings to the venue? Our Personalised Leather Wedding Ring Pouches are the perfect solution and a great unique alternative to a ring box - made especially for your day! The leather jewellery pouches can be personalised with your initials or wedding date on the outside and you can add a secret message printed inside the pouch to make it extra personal - perhaps the name of your wedding venue as a wedding memento or a secret surprise love note for you and your partner to read at the altar.
Our Personalised Leather Wedding Ring Pouches are handmade in the Create Gift Love workshop in Ringwood, UK, from soft luxurious leather to protect your rings on the day and keep them safe. Our pouches are made from sustainable natural leather, available in blush pink, tan brown or classic black, and are hand stamped with beautiful gold foil for a luxurious finish. The ring holders are a lovely finishing touch that will make you smile on the day and can be kept as a keepsake to store your wedding rings for years to come.
“We used this for our rings on our wedding day and it was perfect. Small enough to easily fit in the best man's pocket and fitted the rings nicely!” - Create Gift Love customer Kevin, March 2022
2. Personalised Wedding Cake Topper with Photo
For many couples the choice of wedding cake is a huge part of the wedding planning process, from the flavour to decoration and the number of tiers (bigger the better!), but one thing that’s easy to forget about is the wedding cake topper. The iconic bride and groom model figures are traditional and laser-cut wooden names have become very popular in recent years but if you’re looking for something more unique, our Personalised Wedding Cake Topper with Photo makes a great little finishing touch. The wooden cake toppers can be printed with any photograph of your choice - maybe a picture from your engagement photo shoot or a throwback of when you were first together. You and your guests will love looking back at the special memories on your wedding day, plus the personalised cake topper will look great in photos!
Our Personalised Photo Wedding Cake Toppers are made from sustainably sourced maple wood which is food-safe and environmentally friendly. Your photograph and personalised message will be printed directly onto the wood with the natural wood grain showing through, giving a beautiful unique finish.
“This is absolutely perfect! The photo quality is exceptional, it’s so cute and different from “standard” wedding cake toppers, we’re just in love! We can’t wait to use this on our day.” - Create Gift Love customer Aisling, January 2022
3. Personalised Leather Debossed Keyrings
When it comes to the guests at your wedding the first job, of course, is narrowing down the guest list and sending out the invitations. Once you’ve received all your RSVPs it comes to the dreaded job of writing the table plans, but what about the place settings? And unique wedding favours for your guests? If you want to kill two birds with one stone and tick two jobs off your wedding checklist at once, we’d suggest combining the two! Our selection of engraved wooden coasters make beautiful personalised place settings that your guests can take home with them as a memento of the day, and our personalised leather debossed keyrings also make brilliant alternatives to place name cards.
Our Personalised Leather Debossed Keyrings can be completely customised to suit the decor of your wedding, available in five different shapes, eight leather colours and two font styles - traditional or contemporary. The handmade leather keyrings are traditionally debossed and fitted with solid brass fixings to complement the sustainable vegetable tanned leather and can be personalised with names, titles or initials. Your guests will love these unique place settings and useful wedding favours. The personalised leather keyrings also make great thank you gifts for your wedding party, groomsmen and bridesmaids.
“Keychains were lovely, made with real leather and brilliant colour selection. My friends love their personalised ones!” - Create Gift Love customer Geraldine, January 2021
These are just three examples of the personalised wedding styling decor and accessories that we have to offer at Create Gift Love. All our gifts and keepsakes are handmade to order in our New Forest workshop in Ringwood, UK, by the independent workshop team.
