In the words of Jeremy Grey from the hit movie Wedding Crashers “What do you like better, Christmas or wedding season?...The answer would be, um, wedding season!”
Wedding season, traditionally spans June through September but varies depending on geography. It’s the time of year when new life is blooming and love is in full swing. While many of us are gearing up for beach weekends and cookouts with family and friends, others are anxiously awaiting the wedding days of their sons, daughters, best friends, or loved ones. It may even be their very own big day!
Before the wedding day, there is much planning to be done to ensure that everything goes smoothly. One must prepare for the bridal shower, engagement party, and rehearsal dinner for the future bride and groom. And don’t forget the ever-important bachelor and bachelorette parties. To enhance these events, consider buying custom champagne glasses for the bride-to-be with her new initials or custom beverage napkins for the rehearsal dinner with the wedding date and/or a meaningful quote.
Blinged-out bridal party t-shirts and tanks are all the rage for showers and bachelorette parties. And don’t let the brevity of the marriage turn you off from the very cool custom tracksuits that the Kardashian clan sported when Kim and Kris tied the knot. Customized gifts such as flasks and other keepsakes are very popular for bridal parties and groomsmen. And, while most of you know GAP for its innovative items to promote beverages, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves when it comes to enhancing a wedding party. Whether for you or for a friend, please feel free to reach out if you are looking to add that something special to your wedding events.
Once the showers and parties have come and gone, the wedding day finally arrives! While the wedding ceremony itself authenticates the marriage, many people look forward to the reception when the serious celebrating begins. And what is a celebration without delicious cocktails to enjoy throughout the night? It’s time for dancing, singing, and, most importantly, trying some new beverages at the open bar. Whether you prefer vodka or whiskey, beer or wine, we’ve suggested some beverages below that are perfect choices for the next wedding reception.
