If you are looking for an alternative to the "traditional" (and dare we say, impersonal and quite dull) wedding favours then we have the perfect idea for a "living gift" you can give your guests to remember your big day for years to come.....the gift that keeps on giving is the gift that keeps on growing....sow some seeds of love.
Recently, I came across one of the loveliest people I've ever had the good fortune to meet. Jaime Lawn who owns and runs Love Bespoke Ltd ~ A simply wonderful business which offers personalised seed packets for various occasions.
Sadly, my wife's mother, my wonderful mother-in-law passed away around the end of March having suffered a devestating stroke back in February. I wanted to "do something" for my family (in-law) and came across memorial seed packets. Something I'd never heard of before but thought a fabulous idea. I saw Jaime's seed packets, found her website and gave her a call. Within minutes, I knew I'd found the perfect person to create these for June's (my wonderful mother-in-law) memory.
June always loved Fairies, Butterflies, Flowers and her most favourite colour was the colour blue (especially turquoise!). Jaime listened, suggested, designed and produced THE MOST WONDERFUL design for us which was simply perfect. No other words except perfect. So perfect that June's coffin and the order of service used the same designs ensuring the day was perfectly coordinated.
The feedback came from everyone about what a lovely idea, how and where they were going to sow them, how beautiful the design, how much June would have loved them. Even the celebrant mentioned them during the service. Forget-Me-Nots were the perfect choice.
Speaking with Jaime felt like speaking with an old friend. It was a horrible time for us all but Jaime worked "above and beyond" to make sure everything was "spot on" and it really, really was.
Having met and worked with Jaime, getting to know her and her business, I thought Pink Wedding Venues should give her a HUGE SHOUT OUT!! Hopefully both our couples and venues will love them as much as we do.
Giving seed packets as a thank-you to your guests, to mark and celebrate your wedding is such a beautiful idea and one which your guests will absolutely love. They can plant the seeds and when they grow they will have a colourful reminder of your day for weeks/months even years to come. They can keep the packets as a souvenir of a wonderful day too...
Jaime will be able to design and style your seed packets to coordinate with your colours for your day.
Jaime can also design wedding guest books to match your seed packets or as a "stand alone" order.
If you're a wedding venue or a wedding business (or indeed you might work for a corporate company) why not have some deisgned with your branding as a "give away" to your customers? Jaime also works with brands and can create bespoke packets for your business.
On a personal note, I would like to say a big thank-you to Jaime for everything she did for June, my family and I.
I really hope brides, grooms, venues and businesses alike look at what Jaime does and how she can personalise everything to make it special, just for you.
