I am having a small Church Ceremony in my original wedding date for Oct 10, 2020 but had to push my reception for April 2021 because of covid. My bridal party will not be at at ceremony. When I give them their gifts next year while getting ready for the reception should I personalize the gifts with 10.10.20 or the April 2021 date? We also have a Mr & Mrs Wedding cake topper with the original date. Should we still use it next year?
I personally wouldn’t give your bridesmaids a gift personalized with your own wedding date. That’s not super useful for them. I would prefer to have my actual wedding date on my cake topper opposed to the celebration date, but I think it’s personal preference.
I agree not to put your date on gifts, gifts should be things for those individuals that they will like and use. Anything that’s a prop for your wedding pictures is not considered a gift. I would still use the cake topper, because it’s still your date. If you weren’t getting married on 10-10 still it wouldn’t really work, but I definitely wouldn’t put the reception date on the cake topper because that’s just the celebration not the marriage date.
I agree with PP. I wouldn’t give gifts to your bridal party with dates in them. That’s an even greater chance they won’t use your gifts afterwards. If you are using the for photos then I’d do the date in which they are participating, but that’s not really a gift more so of decor or a prop. The only item my MOH & Flower Girls received/will receive were cookies in their proposal boxes.
If you put any date, I suggest you put the date that they will be in attendance with you. I think the gifts are more about the memories that you have with them about the day. Some people get gifts as if it’s their birthday which I plan on doing, and others get the same gift like a charm bracelet type of deal or personalized robes type deal that has more remembrance of the day. So I’d suggest the date that they’re celebrating with you out of sentimental/remembrance purposes.
