Giving someone a gift that is unwrapped, is like showcasing a whole movie in a trailer – there is absolutely no element of surprise.

Weddings, and all the events leading up to the special day, call for a different class of gift and subsequently, a different class of gift wrap. Generally, wedding gifts are either highly practical (the old tradition of gifting cookware, bakeware and kitchen accessories springs to mind), or extremely personalised to ensure the bride and groom have sacred memories of their leap into marriage. Gifts of this nature firstly need to be packaged and secondly, they demand a very specific style of gift wrapping. Reading up on wedding etiquette is the first step to ensuring you’re on the right track. After that, scrolling through some gift wrapping ideas for weddings will inspire your creativity and help with your selection when visiting a gift wrapping showroom.
