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.

Spring is Here – Refresh your Promotional Products

A change of seasons always signals a time for renewal! As the saying goes – out with the old, and in with the new! The term “Spring Cleaning” brings to mind cleaning out closets, changing heating and air conditioning filters, refreshing batteries in smoke alarms, and buying new clothes. It’s also a great time to refresh your marketing efforts to attract new business with new promotional products.

Spring means warmer weather and more outdoor events. School will be ending soon, and people will start making plans to head to the beach and other vacation destinations with friends and family.

Custom Hand Sanitizer – a Necessity for Corporate Events and Tradeshows

Large-Scale Events – a Breeding Ground for Disease

No one likes to think about germs and bacteria, but the reality is you pick them up everywhere – work, home, restaurants, shops, and anywhere else you may go. And not just during pandemic events! Each time you open a door, push an elevator button, use the company copier, or pour yourself a cup of coffee (at home and the office), you pick up whatever germs the person before you left behind.

So, just think about what happens during tradeshows, promotional events, and other large events that attract a large number of people! You are constantly shaking hands, exchanging business cards, and sharing pens and literature with hundreds of people throughout the day. Not to mention the number of surfaces you touch that have already been touched by countless others!

Pump Bottle Gel Hand Sanitizer for your Trade Table

At a minimum, when sponsoring an event or booth at a tradeshow, you should keep a large pump bottle of custom hand sanitizer at your table so you can refresh your hands periodically, and offer the same to those visiting your booth. Employees can use it often after shaking hands with guests or sharing objects such as business cards. Guests can use it before they move on to the next vendor, helping to thwart the spread of possible viruses before it starts. It only takes one person with the flu or a virus to pass along their illness to countless numbers of people during large-scale events!

Individual Gift Hand Sanitizer Bottles

You could even go one step further by offering visitors a small bottle of hand sanitizer to take with them. Set up a large fishbowl or another container, fill it with individually sized bottles of custom hand sanitizer featuring your company logo, and let attendees grab one when they come to your table. Not only will they be reminded of your company each time they use it, but others around them will notice your logo as they use it, prompting them to visit your table for their own bottle. This gives you a chance to present your business or products to more people, to gain additional customers.

Hand sanitizer really is a necessity during tradeshows. It benefits you, your employees, and attendees by helping keep everyone’s hands fresh and germ-free during the event, to prevent the spreading of viruses and germs from one person to the next. You don’t know where other people’s hands have been or what they have touched before they get to your booth.

The Benefits of Gifting Promotional Sanitizer

Using custom hand sanitizer to promote your business, allows you to promote your brand in a useful and practical way. Everyone comes prepared with promotional products to pass along to guests in the hopes they will remember their brand after the event is over. A health product like hands sanitizer shows people that you care about their health, and were thoughtful when selecting a promotional gift. You didn’t just throw your name on some one-use gimmick that most likely will end up in the nearest trash bin and won’t even make it out the doors of the event, let alone be seen again as a reminder.

At the Custom Hand Sanitizer Store, we offer a great selection of personalized promotional products to fit every need. From credit card-sized hand sanitizers to gels, pumps, and wipes, we offer a varied selection at low prices made to fit any budget. Head on over to our store and place an order for your next event!
