Give the best. gift. ever. for any occasion! Our Concierge team is always available to guide you through our collection of readymade gifts, or design a completely custom gift for one person to one hundred. With summer (and wedding season) just around the corner, our gifting director, Ashley, is highlighting a few of her favorites for bridesmaids, groomsmen and guests!
As a wedding planner in a previous life and a recent bride myself, I know that the planning process can quickly become a burden of never-ending checklists and to-do’s, so I love that Foxtrot can help check a few things off that list with our bridesmaid, groomsman and ever-popular welcome gifts for guests. By getting to know each couple and the vision for their upcoming wedding, we’re able to make suggestions and create unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for their big day!
I love this custom bridesmaid’s gift because we were able to tie in the bride’s Charleston bachelorette to the theme of the gift – a gold pineapple tumbler for a touch of southern hospitality, and of course a Champagne Carry on Cocktail kit so they could get the celebrations started early – it was the perfect way to ask them to be part of her day.
It’s probably no surprise that groomsmen are typically considered a bit easier to buy for when it comes to gifts, but how many kitschy cufflinks or personalized flasks does one guy really need? I love this custom groomsman gift we put together with the groom’s favorite bourbon paired with an ice tray and cigar. The groom later sent me a picture their wedding photographer took of all of them enjoying their cigars that day!
One request that we always see is for welcome gifts for guests hotel rooms, and with our extensive list of snacks and drinks (many of which are made in Chicago!), it’s fun and easy for couples to pick their favorites to welcome their guests to the Windy City. I usually recommend a mix of salty and sweet snacks with some essentials that guests can enjoy while traveling, however, one of my favorite gifts we did was a Bloody Mary package so guests could enjoy a little hair of the dog the morning after the wedding! The options are endless, and by complementing the gift with your wedding weekend itinerary or a personal welcome note, guests immediately know how grateful you are that they’re there to celebrate with you!
So stop stressing, brides (and grooms!). We’re here to help design the perfect gifts for your wedding and hand deliver them exactly where they need to go, so you have more time to enjoy your engagement and less to stress about.
