In today's climate families, businesses and now even brides must look for ways to maximize their spending dollars. Fortunately, the bridal couple can still enjoy the luxury of a beautiful and even "dream wedding" without breaking the bank.
Start by being creative and letting your imagination expand to include practical as well as non-traditional wedding decorations and wedding accessories. One such item is the nested box set. The boxes usually come in a set of three, four or six.
Use nested boxes for guest table centerpieces as an alternative to the usual floral arrangement or vases and bowls. Allow your florist or decorator to create a striking arrangement with the boxes as innovative container holders. Another suggestion is to fill them with all sorts of goodies and place in the center of your bridal party's table. As the boxes empty, encourage your family and friends to take them as mementos. You may also choose to have nesting boxes at your guest registry filled with favors for all to take as they arrive. The possibilities are endless.
Imagine the surprise when your mother and the mother-of-the-groom are seated at the reception and they're presented with nested boxes filled with notes, photos, and an assortment of sentimental gifts and goodies.
Nested boxes are practical because they're not only beautiful, they're functional and are excellent for re-gifting and packaging all sorts of gifts in a variety of sizes. Add a little color and your distinctive personality to the wedding decorations by choosing bold, soft or even whimsical color palettes. Some may choose to leave the boxes nested other may want to split the set, placing them strategically in the reception area to enhance the wedding theme.
