Wedding Welcome Gifts | Branding By Kara

The 2015 wedding season is in full swing, and 2016 dates are booking quickly! It is such an honor to work with so many beautiful couples before and on their wedding days. The trust that they instill into me is amazing, and I am thrilled to go through this season and already looking forward to the next!

I've been meaning to share more about my wedding welcome gifts on the blog for quite some time now, so this is pretty exciting! 

Below are the gifts that I send to new brides and grooms that have booked their wedding photography with By Kara. I searched and searched for inspiration and ideas regarding a wedding welcome gift for my couples, but I couldn't quite decide what I wanted to do. I did know that I wanted something practical, personal, and well, welcoming! I also wanted something that was simple but included small details and touches of beauty... Cut-out hearts, mini clothespins, gold and pink accents, etc.

These gifts, surprisingly to me, ended up becoming quite versatile, so I have even molded them into another version to say "thank you" to my brides and grooms after their weddings when I give them their DVD.

Here is what's inside:

  • Gold Ampersand
  • Welcome Card
  • Welcome Handwritten Note
  • By Kara Photo Business Card
  • Yummy Caramels

The gifts are perfect to mail, or hand deliver to my clients, so I LOVE that! Most of my supplies could be bought at the nearby craft store or online.

You can see that the welcome gifts are simple, but they have been so well received! One of my brides, Audrey, thanked me after received hers by saying, "Thank you so much for sending us a package! I got it this weekend and it brightened my day! It was very thoughtful of you, and I appreciate it so much!"

See, that's exactly what I wanted to do!
