My Wedding Journey 10 - Bridesmaid and Groomsmen Gifts - Sweet Bunny



I have always felt that it is important to convey to others on how much you appreciate them. It is easy to overlook and take for granted the little things people do for you. In appreciation for all the help my Groomsmen and Bridesmaid have provided dear and myself, I prepared a token of appreciation for both groups. I know bridesmaid proposals are on the rage these days but one must not forget the awesome Groomsmen. No need la men no need to be pampered like girls, you might say; but to me, a little gesture of thanks had never hurt anyone has it?

Dear and I arrange different dates to meet up with our Groomsmen and Bridesmaid separately for a guy’s afternoon out and for me a Hens party arranged by one of my Bridesmaid, I felt that was the most appropriate occasion to pass them their gifts. I spent quite a number of days deciding on what would be best as gifts for them and finally decided on shot glasses for the guys as mementoes and a gift bag for the ladies.

If you ever asked me where I love shopping for unique gifts I would instantly tell you Etsy. It is the best platform to get handcrafted, delicately made items and what more in a way you are supporting a small business of the arts community.

Best Groomsmen’s gifts on Etsy – The shot glasses got for the guys were from this shop One19stationery, the seller was very attentive and write me a couple of messages about my preferences on how the names should appear. The boxes she provided had all been specially customised for the Groomsmen with their names. What I loved most were the tiny tuxedos that were meant to be stuck on to vodka bottled, just adorable. Shipping took about a week or so and everything was well-packed nothing arrived broken or squashed.

Best affordable and useful Bridesmaid gifts – In the gift bag for my bridesmaids, I prepared a pink robe with the sister of the bride written on it, I got it via Taobao. I totally regretted not ironing or steamed them haha they came all wrinkled. I also added in facemask from Innisfree, A sewing kit, plasters for blisters, makeup remover, a full set of nail cutters and files and much other stuff the ladies would need for the actual day.



My Bridesmaids and Groomsmen are all wonderful helpful people. The Groomsmen are fathers of young children and one is a father to be, to take an entire day off to assist dear and I on our wedding day meant the world to us. One of my bridesmaids who worked on Saturday even took the day off a year in advance. Dear and I treated them to a nice meal on another occasion, Always remember to be a blessing to others as they have been to you. One of the Groomsmen mentioned that he wished he gave his Groomsmen a gift during his wedding; he was deeply touched that I took the time and made the effort to show my appreciation.






Lasting Graduation Flowers Singapore - Sweet Bunny






My younger sister graduated with Masters and I wanted to surprise her by getting her a bouquet of flowers. There is a great range of florist in Singapore but I specifically wanted something more lasting, that wouldn’t wither after the special occasion.



Adorable plush keychain perfect as a memento - I also wanted my sister to have something that commemorates her graduation day, I recalled that she once told me that she liked Angel from the cartoon Lilo and stich. I did spend quite an amount of time in my quest for a Plush Graduation Angel. It wasn’t easy but I eventually found her on Carousell, described as a Pink Stich on Mizzu Flora’s website.


 


Lasting dried flowers –Dried flowers are just as pretty and way more lasting and economical, my sister’s boyfriend and I decided to share the cost and save on transport by doing self-collection. The colourful baby’s breath and the 3 cotton plants were a pretty arrangement, as long as the flowers were kept away from sunlight in a well ventilated room, they would be able to last half a year and perhaps longer. Mizzu Flora is a Korean certified florist who has about 200 good reviews on Carousell, which more than vouches that they are an excellent choice for flowers.

Beautiful flower bouquet wrapping
– I liked that we were given a choice of wrapping colours. There were 2 styles to choose from a white one and a black one bounded together with a ribbon which consisted their branding.

                                           
Great website and shopping cart system - The website was simple but well designed , I could easily navigate thru the site and at a glance was able to see the floral collection available. Checking out with my order was also a breeze, no hassle at all, they accept credit card payment. 

                                 

Ease of self-collection of flowers - In the checkout page there is a column to select your preferred self-collection timing, just set the date and time and your good to go, the collection address was sent to me via email once my transaction was successful.

                                           

Well packaged bouquet of flowers
– After my sister’s boyfriend picked up the flower he sent me a photo of it. We arranged to collect the flowers the day before and we were pleased. It was packed in a transparent bag and had a complimentary gift card in a shape of a silver heart.

Support budding businesses – I always felt that we should support budding business rather than well-established ones from time to time, budding business usually consists of an individual completing all the task from design to delivery all by themselves. For their time and effort I deeply feel that we should give them kudos for their hard work, effort and determination.

On the day of my sister’s graduation she was thrilled to receive the bouquet and how much effort we made to get her what she loved. She found Angel plush adorable in her graduation gown. My sister’s BF and I were glad that our efforts paid off, bring a smile to someone you love does make you gleam with happiness too.
