Three Ways to Incorporate Gratitude In Your WeddingNovember 17, 2017
Poet G.K. Chesteron said, “…thanks are the highest form of thought; and…gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” It is no wonder, then, that one of the best moments to express gratitude is on your wedding day. On this day, couples are grateful to have found one another and to affirm their commitment, whereas family and friends are grateful to share in the ceremony to support their loved ones.
During such a joyous and love-filled celebration, tokens of gratitude are extremely apt. Here are a few ways to incorporate the art of thankfulness into your wedding ceremony.
Say It With a Toast
Typically, the gentle clinking of glasses is in celebration of the bride and groom. However, what could be more gracious and grateful than a toast coming from the newly betrothed to their family and friends. A simple ¬†verbal offering of your thanks to those who invested their time, money, and energy into your big day goes a long way.¬†
Say It With Signs
While most wedding guests arrive to a ceremony program or seating arrangement, why not welcome your guests with an expression of gratitude? Use signs or wedding programs to tell guests how glad you are to have them share in your wedding day. Thank them for their time, travel, and thoughtfulness.
Say It With Food
Ok, ok, we’ve saved the best for last. You know what they say, food is love (and we could not agree more). If you really want your guests to feel the love, say thank you with festive goodies. The options for expressing gratitude with food are nearly endless. Will it be a secret family cookie recipe, a sachet of tea, a jar of local honey? No matter what you choose, your guests will be sure to think of your sincere gesture every time they enjoy it.
Whether its the holiday season or not, these tokens of gratitude lend added warmth to any Destin Bay House Wedding. Be sure to ask our event planner how to customize your big day!
