Make gifts for the wedding itself
Favors come from the heart
Thanks to the gifts you say not only”Thank you!”. At the beginning of the festival you greet your guests and express your joy and hospitality. That’s why your guests will be even happier if you have made the gifts yourself or at least have packed them, provided they look original and chic.

In this case you should rather put on monochrome packaging with small pearls or gemstones or, in the best case, fill small glass bottles and cans with glitter powder.
White organza fabric and fine silk as well as gold and silver are also recommended in this case
