Personalized Wedding Favors for Summer Weddings

The Tradition

June has long been considered the best month to get married, a tradition which is believed to have begun in Ancient Rome. The month of June is named for Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage and childbirth, who was married to the God Jupiter. It was believed that couples who were married in June would be “blessed with prosperity and happiness”.

Romans celebrated this union on June 1, and the month has since been considered the best time to tie the knot. As it also coincided with their annual bath, it was a great time to get married since they would smell fresh and clean! The tradition of the bride carrying flowers was to help mask any lingering body odor. Thankfully, today we don’t have to worry about that! We can shower as often as we wish.

Still, the month of June remains the most popular month for weddings. “For they say when you marry in June, you’re a bride all your life.” Weddings are a big day in the bride and groom’s lives, and a lot of time and planning goes into making their day unique and unforgettable, which includes family traditions passed down through generations. While some traditions are family-specific, others are standard time-honored customs dating back further than anyone can remember.

These traditions play a huge part surrounding the wedding and include bridal showers, bachelor parties,  bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, and more. One lasting tradition is the giving of gifts to the bridesmaids and groomsmen, which is often a distinctive gift that means something special to each individual.


Making your Day Memorable for Everyone

You can take the gift-giving to the next level and make it a memorable day for all of your guests, not just family and close friends! There are several fun ways to get guests involved in the wedding, to make the event more fun for everyone involved.

One idea is to provide disposable cameras on every table, so guests can take pictures of events as they happen. Your photographer can only be in one place at a time! So this helps capture moments you might miss and provide proof of some of the funny stories you might be told later!


Personalized Gifts for your Guests

Another wonderful idea is sending your guests home with custom wedding favors as souvenirs of your special day! While the traditional wedding is held indoors in a Church, many are held outdoors, in backyards, vineyards, parks, and even the beach.

Summer is the perfect time for an outdoor wedding. Gifts customized with the names of the bride and groom, along with the date of the wedding, provide guests with a permanent reminder of your blissful day.


Beach Weddings

A popular venue during the summer, beach weddings can add a bit of fun to your big day. Since they are held outdoors, you can pretty much do anything you like! Personalized gifts your wedding guests can use during the wedding and then take home with them once the event is over, makes a great keepsake for your special day.

 

Custom Sunglasses

Our Baja Neon and Malibu styles are our most popular personalized sunglasses for weddings. You can choose a color or two to match your wedding theme, or go bold with an assortment of colors and let guests choose the color they want.

An easy way to do this is to place a bowl near the entrance or in the center of each table with a selection of styles and/or colors, and let everyone grab the pair they want on the way in (or out). Guests will not only be guaranteed protection for their eyes, but will be able to see the event unfold without glare or interference from the sun.

 

Sunscreen and SPF Lip Balm

A necessity when spending time outdoors is sunscreen and lip balm containing SPF. When attending an event such as a wedding, it might not be on the minds of attendees to bring these items with them. Place large bowls around the event filled with custom sunscreen and lip balm, and let guests grab what they need.

Everyone will be able to enjoy your event longer without the fear of sunburn or chapped lips. Afterward, they can take the sunscreen and lip balm with them when they leave. In addition to standard sunscreen or lip balm, we also offer sunscreen with an included lip balm for a complete product!

 

Koozies

If you are serving canned or bottled drinks during your reception, personalized koozies are another fun idea for beach weddings. You can create your own design or opt for one of our stock designs, like our Flower, Gold Wedding Rings, or Heart in the Sand designs, and add your names and the date of the event. We have several designs that would make wonderful gifts for an outdoor wedding. You can see our entire selection of stock designs here.

There are many other ideas you could come up with to give guests a more memorable day, and we have products to cover them all at Promotional Webstores.

Take Your Brand on a Summer Vacation

The last couple of years have been hard on us all. But now the winter blues are starting to lift. Many of us are starting to think about that well-deserved summer vacation. A beach holiday in the summer sun perhaps? Maybe a beautiful apartment with a lovely swimming pool. Or a wonderful city break to that destination you have been dreaming about for the last few years. We all deserve it, don’t we?

With restrictions starting to lift around the planet, those summer vacations are back on and it may just be a record-breaking year for the tourism industry! Well, let’s hope so, especially after the last couple of years!

Does Your Brand Need a Vacation?

Have you ever considered sending your brand on a summer holiday? Now before you question if I have already started on the summer cocktails, let me explain what I mean.

When we go on holiday there are a few items we regularly need! Sunglasses comes to mind, a bag to carry my kit to the hotel gym or down to the pool or beach, and even a bottle of sunscreen. Imagine if these items were promotional products that highlighted your brand!

In a previous article, we highlighted the value of using promotional products for great brand awareness. For someone to keep and use a promotional product it needs to fit two main criteria. It is something they will regularly use in their daily life, and it has to be of high quality. Here at Promotional Webstores, we offer a great range of quality sunglasses, sunscreen, and bags that can be customized to your brand. All at competitive prices! Hand these out to your clients, let them use them not only in their daily lives but also when they go on vacation. Then suddenly you have international exposure!

Now you might be sitting there reading this, thinking my brand does not really need international exposure. So, this really does not apply to me. Before you click away let me convince you that this is might not be the case!

Social Media is a Powerful Advertising Tool

With the boom of picture-based and video social media, your products have the potential to be viewed by millions of people worldwide along with the whole of the US. Just one great photo or video where your branded product is in full view and before you know it you may just become a viral sensation!

Just think how many pictures and videos will be posted and viewed this summer, of people enjoying their summer vacations with the most wonderful views, on the most beautiful beaches, at a great romantic restaurant, or at that tropical swimming pool. Each picture potentially has your branded sunglasses, sunscreen, or bag in that photo. Viewed by all their followers who suddenly start thinking…. I wonder who that company is?

Still not convinced?

Think back to your last holiday. We look at everything, taking it all in. We see everyone. Intrigued by their appearance, what they are wearing and carrying. Then we take pictures and videos and post them on social media for the world to see!

I bet you can picture someone you saw on your travels with a certain bag or product, and you remember the name of that company that was printed on it. Maybe you even googled them. Maybe you ended up being one of their customers…

After the Burn – Using Aloe Vera to Heal

You didn’t heed the warnings and spent time at the beach, gardening, or another outdoor activity without the proper use of an SPF sunscreen product. Now you’re paying the price! From a painful burn to subsequent skin irritations, the consequences of not using sunscreen, or not using it properly, are yours to bear. The best way to combat a sunburn is by using Aloe vera to ease the pain and promote healing.

Benefits of Aloe Vera

Aloe vera soothes and softens the skin, bringing relief to the discomfort and pain associated with sunburns by promoting regeneration while moisturizing the skin. An extraordinary cactus-like plant, Aloe vera contains a healing gel-like substance comprised of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids to help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and accelerate the healing process.

Aloe Vera Uses

Not just for sunburns, aloe vera is used for various skin conditions including burns, bug bites, psoriasis, frostbite, psoriasis, cold sores, and acne. Aloe vera gel also treats the itching and inflammation associated with these conditions. As a bonus, it also helps fight the visible signs of aging, prevents dark spots, reduced dental plaque, treats canker sores, and more.

How to use Aloe Vera

Using an aloe plant can be a bit daunting, given the spiky ends of the plant’s leaves, and isn’t very practical for everyday use for today’s on-the-go lifestyles. Luckily you can easily purchase this wonderful product in convenient travel-sized bottles you can toss in a purse, backpack, or briefcase for quick relief anytime you need it. Custom aloe vera gel makes a great promotional item as well. Whether handed out alone or alongside a promotional sunscreen, customers will appreciate the gift and think of your business each time they use it! You can find everything you need at the Custom Sunscreen Store to both prevent and treat a sunburn.
