Is anyone providing tissues for your guests at your wedding ceremony? I just thought about it but am wondering if I can just put some in a basket at the beginning of the aisle for people to take as they find their seat rather than buying enough for everyone. What did/ are you doing?
That is thoughtful, but a friend of mine did that at her recent wedding and literally no one took the tissues. That's not saying your crowd wouldn't want them, but I'd be cautious about the extra expense and only buy a few.
I don’t think is necessary. Criers know they’re criers (🙋🏻♀️)— I always tuck a couple of tissues into my own purse before a wedding. It’s a nice idea but actual logistics make it seem more complicated than it is worth.
I found a cute bunch on amazon for $15.00 for 60 of them so I just ordered it. I plan on having about 120 guests but atleast they'll be there for those who may need them. If no one take em ill just stache them in my car for my child lol But Ill just put them by my "welcome sign" for the ones that do want them!
I bought these mini boxes at Hobby Lobby and put one or two tissues in each. I thought they were cute, and they were a quick, easy, inexpensive item to include at the end of pews during the ceremony. Several of us are definitely wedding criers, so a few ppl definitely used them for their happy tears.
So I had thought about this and wanted to do something entirely different.
I purchased vintage reproduction handkerchiefs to go with the programs so that everyone will have one. If they don't want them/leave them behind then I can re-use them and sew them into something like a small blanket or something memorable.
I know there will be tears shed at the wedding (all tears of joy, mind you) but wanted to do something a bit more "personal" than small packs of kleenex's.
We're thinking of getting a dozen or so packs for our 46 guests. I saw the cutest ones that say something about tears of joy. We'll probably have a basket just as people step outside to our outdoor wedding. That way they will be there during the big moments like speeches, first dance, and so on.
I am doing this! We are having a rustic style wedding so I will be putting two tree stumps at the beginning of the aisle. One with a welcome sign and the other with a basket of tissues (just went to the dollar store, got a woven basket and a couple packs of travel tissues) with a sign that says "No ugly crying".
