Why Crystal Makes the Perfect Wedding Gift
“Marriage is the golden ring in a chain whose beginning is a glance and whose ending is Eternity.” –Kahlil Gibra
Despite the fact that weddings take place all throughout the year, late spring through early fall has become widely recognized as the un-official “wedding season”–at least it has to Sorelle! Here’s a little insight on how we prepare for a wedding “Sorelle Style”, while simultaneously handling life and the joy of designing your antiques of tomorrow.
If we want to get technical… wedding gifts are a physical representation of support and love for the couple to help them start their new life on a positive note. So if you’re anything like us during the wedding season, you’re constantly wondering what to give the bride and groom on their special day. Whether the gift is large or small, you want it to be a piece that is cherished throughout the years, like the Sorelle Pair of Crystal Lily Votive Candleholders. Plus, most modern couples seem to be already settled before their nuptials, leaving the need for toasters and blenders somewhat obsolete. This is why we always gift crystal.
It seems the People of Wales felt the same way when Prince William and Katherine Middleton were wed last month. The People of Wales wanted to give a gift that spoke of their adoration and well-wishes, so they settled on an extraordinary piece of locally handcrafted crystal to give to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Aside from its regal nature, crystal is delicate and symbolizes fullness, purity, unison and an overall luxurious appeal which is represented beautifully with with a vase like this Sorelle Blooming Flower Crystal Vase, a lavish yet practical accent piece suited for any home. If you want to make the gift more personal, look into a piece with room for engraving something special, like the couples name and wedding date. The Sorelle Rechargeable Illuminated Base with Crystal Heart is perfect for this.
We want to leave you with one last thought… presentation and packaging are important when it comes to gift-giving, so a little thoughtful touch and creativity can speak volumes. Not to mention, wrapping a wedding present is one of the most pleasurable gift-wrapping experiences.
Happy Wedding Season, everyone! Have a fabulous time celebrating the ones you love, and dancing the night away!
Lots of love,
Anoush & Avisha
