One of my favourite projects from 2017 was the bridesmaid thank you gift boxes for Rafa’s wedding. I’ve shared some snippets of those works over on Instagram including Lovebirdstories feed, but now I’ve got the full footage from the photographer and I’m feeling over the moon to see all of them together once again.
I can say, working with Rafa was such a blissful experience! It’s such a pleasure to make her vision comes true into a beautifully crafted wooden box filled with pretty little things for her ladies, matching ribbons and some personal touches such as a handwritten card and tag. We decided that natural and greenery feel was the personality of the whole design. It’s something that is so ‘her’ therefore there’s a strong connection between the giver and the recipient- it feels like it relates on a personal level.
All lovely details including the mini folder which provides an empty blank card for the bride to write her personal message for each bridesmaid. We carefully hand-picked all items including the packaging. I ordered the boxes from local craftsmanship source in Jakarta which custom designed these sliding handmade boxes. We agree that we wanted the base of the gifts was something reusable so nothing is gone to waste. This beautiful eco friendly packaging turned out to be the perfect keepsake. The same reason we added succulents and dried flowers as the finishing touch. Each box was topped with ribbons and bridesmaid’s names to make it more special and personal.
For the colour palette, we opted for the shades of green and copper accent. I found some mini bottles of Kriter which were the perfect addition to the box. As a thank you gesture, these mini bottles were finished off by the hand lettering tag said ‘Cheers’ which suited that purpose. We had the matching copper ribbons which tied in perfectly with the copper foil wraps.
These curated gift boxes also contains all pampering gifts all girls love. She carefully selected her little treats for her bridesmaids in rose gold theme from lipsticks, earrings and essential oil tubes. Something that they could wear in the wedding day and they would be smelling awesome too.
Happy bride means happy bridesmaids!
