Your wedding guests have often travelled from near and far to celebrate and bear witness to one of the most important days of your life. They will have bought new outfits, arranged transport, paid for a hotel room and picked out a suitable present to start you off on your new journey; therefore it’s only right that they are given a token to remind them of your wedding day and to thank them for the effort they have made to be there for you.
