Hi friends. I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend. I sure did!
I’m back today with another gift wrap inspiration post for you. Over the years I’ve shared wrapping ideas for birthdays, mother’s day, Valentine’s day and other special occasions but never for a wedding. Today I’m sharing inspiration for a wedding along with a few wedding specific gift wrapping tips. Enjoy!
The past couple of years we have not attended many weddings but this year is different. We have several weddings between now and August and that means some fun gift wrapping for me.
When I wrap wedding gifts I like to use paper, ribbon and embellishments that coordinate with the colors for the wedding. It’s such an easy way to make the gift even more special.
The hubs and I will be attending a family wedding this weekend where the colors are blue, yellow and silver. The color combination is perfect for a summer wedding and it provided great inspiration for wrapping our gift.
Wedding Gift Wrap Inspiration: Blue, Yellow & Silver
Since our gift is in a large box, I used a wrapping paper with a bold pattern. The blue and white lattice design is perfect for a wedding and the pattern is feminine without being too girly.
tip: buy wrapping paper that can work for more than one occasion and then use embellishments to make the wrapping formal or casual, depending on the event
blue & white medallion gift wrap // white grosgrain ribbon // navy silk ribbon
Once the box was wrapped, I tried a wide white grosgrain ribbon around it and then layered a navy silk ribbon on top. I cut the navy ribbon long enough so I could tie multiple bows on top.
To add in the yellow color, I created a flower bouquet for the top of the box using silk flowers I picked up at the Dollar Store.
The final touch was a silver glitter gift tag that I dressed up with yellow and navy fabric flowers from the craft store.
Using different styles of flowers added interest and gave the top of the box a personalized feel.
It’s wedding season so if you’ll be wrapping wedding gifts, keep these tips in mind…
GIFT WRAPPING TIPS FOR WEDDING GIFTS
- If you don’t want to coordinate your gift wrap with the wedding colors, it’s always classic to use white or silver wrapping paper.
- Always attach a gift tap or card securely to your gift. Or better yet, place the card inside the box and attach a tag with the couples name on it to the outside of the box.
- If you’re planning on giving an envelope containing money or gift cards, put those items in an envelope and wrap a ribbon around it. A ribbon will signify that the envelope it is a gift so it doesn’t get missed or tossed out.
- Embellishments are a fun way to accent your gift wrap and make your gift extra special. My favorite gift embellishments include silk flowers, oversized monogram letters and crystal beads.
