Hello, bride-to-be! As someone who’s been working in the business of beautifying moments for years, I’m here to share one of the best-kept secrets of wedding planning. Let’s discuss the magic of custom-printed ribbons and why they are the perfect finishing touch for your wedding favours.
Why Custom-Printed Ribbons Make Perfect Wedding Favors
When I first started creating custom-printed ribbons, I noticed how they instantly transformed a simple gift into something unique and memorable. And what’s more special and memorable than your wedding day, right?
I recall working with a bride named Emily. She wanted to add something to her wedding favours that would express her and her partner’s personalities. We ended up designing custom-printed ribbons with a sweet quote they both loved. The guests found them charming and took them home as keepsakes! So, custom ribbons don’t just add beauty; they tell a story too!
Think of custom-printed ribbons as the final touch of makeup, that eyeliner wing or pop of lip colour that elevates your whole look. They can complement your wedding theme and colour scheme with suitable materials and designs.
Creates Lasting Memories
Here’s a fun fact: some guests keep the ribbons long after the chocolates or sweets are gone. Ribbons are light, easy to maintain, and a beautiful reminder of your special day.
How to Choose the Right Material and Design for Your Custom Printed Ribbons
The best part about my job? The endless possibilities. Ribbons come in various materials and designs, and I’m here to help you find the best match for your big day.
Selecting the Right Material
Consider the texture and look you want. Satin ribbons add a smooth and luxurious touch. Organza gives a fairy-tale, ethereal feel. I’ve seen couples incorporate both in their weddings, and let me tell you, it looks fantastic!
Considering Design and Colours
In terms of design and colours, I always advise brides to choose something that matches their wedding theme. For instance, if you’re going for a rustic country wedding, earth tones with a simple, delicate print could work wonders.
Ideas for Ribbon Personalisation
Customization is where you can let your personality shine. Remember Emily? She chose a quote for her ribbons. But you can get creative with it!
Names and Wedding Date
A classic choice is to print your name and the wedding date. It’s simple and sweet and gives your guests a memento of your special day.
Quotes and Symbols
Quotes, symbols, or even song lyrics that hold a special meaning for you and your partner are also great. I once worked with a couple who were avid travellers, and we designed a beautiful compass symbol for their ribbons. It was a hit!
How to Incorporate Custom Printed Ribbons in Different Types of Wedding Favors
Think beyond tying a ribbon around a box. Let’s get creative!
Sweets and Chocolates
Tie custom ribbons around little jars filled with your favourite sweets or around chocolate boxes. You could even tie a small ribbon to the stick of a lollipop. It’s all in the details!
For mini bottles of champagne or olive oil, tie the ribbons around the neck of the bottle, adding a chic flair.
If you go the extra mile with homemade goods such as jam or soap, secure the wrapping or lid with a beautiful custom-printed ribbon. It enhances the homemade, personal vibe and adds a touch of elegance.
How to Order Custom Printed Ribbons for Your Wedding
So, you’re ready to add that special touch to your wedding. Great! Here’s a glimpse into how you can order your custom-printed ribbons:
Begin by deciding the design and details to be printed on the ribbons. This could be a fun couple’s activity! Remember, these ribbons are an extension of you.
Estimate the number of guests and consider whether each favour will have a ribbon. It’s always safer to order a bit more, just in case. I’ve seen brides run out of stripes at the last minute, and trust me; it’s not a pleasant situation! Try our complimentary ribbon estimator here.
Placing an Order
Once you’ve figured out the design and quantity, contact us, and we will guide you through the rest of the process.
Remember, custom work takes time. I always recommend placing the order at least a few months before the wedding to ensure ample time for adjustments.
Common Mistakes to Avoid When Ordering Custom Printed Ribbons
In my experience, I’ve seen couples make some common mistakes when ordering custom ribbons. Let me save you the trouble:
Ordering Too Late
As I mentioned before, custom-printed ribbons take time to perfect. Don’t leave it to the last minute!
Misspellings on the Ribbon
It might seem obvious but double-check all text. You don’t want to receive a hundred ribbons with a wrong date or, heaven forbid, a misspelt name!
Incorrect Colour Coordination
Ensure the colours you choose to complement your overall wedding theme. We provide colour samples to help you make the best choice.
As you and your partner work on perfecting those tiny but significant wedding details, I can’t stress enough how custom-printed ribbons can add that special touch to your wedding favours. They embody your unique love story and are delightful keepsakes for your guests.
