The New Wedding Gift List Etiquette

It used to be simple. You get engaged, you plan your wedding and somewhere along the line you decide to make it easier for yourself and your guests by setting up a wedding gift list. Regardless of whether you’d like gifts, cash, honeymoon, charity contributions (or a little bit of all of the above), having a dedicated gift list service has always been a good idea. So what happens now that your wedding plans may have become more complex or in some cases, more simplified? What exactly are the expectations surrounding wedding gifts? We’ve taken all of the most asked questions on this topic to give you everything you need to know about the new wedding gift etiquette.

Cake & Crowns {Alternative Hen Party Inspiration}

This afternoon’s hen party inspiration is pretty much perfect for a Sunday afternoon – it’s all about afternoon tea and flower crown making. I couldn’t think of a nicer way to spend the afternoon, let alone for your hen party, with additional bubbles, so it’s a real treat to share this with you all. The styling is gorgeous but totally achievable if you wanted to recreate this yourselves. However, Becky at Feather and Ferns, and Jess at One Part Love, offer this as a hen party package, making your life SO much easier. You can go to their gorgeous Cambridgeshire location, or they can bring the fun to you! Plus you’ll find it hard to beat their floral and cake baking skills 😉

P.S. For more alternative hen party ideas, check out this brunch and this boho picnic
