Choosing the right gift when attending a wedding is always a daunting task but need not be. With a few helpful tips from Sara Farah, the founder of Dubai’s first luxury wedding gift registry, White Almonds, you’ll be armed with ideas on how to purchase the perfect fail-proof gifts.
1) Help Set The Table
A beautiful dinner set has always been a traditional gift for weddings; something that can be brought out on occasions and that will forever bring back memories of the special day. To make it even more special why not personalise a dinner set with one of our favourite designers, Marie Daâge who is available exclusively at White Almonds in the Middle East. With a stunning selection of 40 colours and patterns to choose from, or the choice to have a customised set, it’s a wonderful concept to create a beautiful table.
2) Relish Special Crystal
A stunning set of crystal is always a popular choice and can be used in so many wonderful ways. Good crystal does much more than reflect light; from arranging small floral arrangements to serving wonderful desserts, there are endless ways for each couple to use their new heirlooms. To add a more personalised touch, you can even have the pieces monogrammed or initialed with the special date.
3) Style Signature Pieces
Don’t underestimate decorative Items. A beautiful vase or stunning candleholders are forever a safe, timeless and elegant choice.
4) Mine and yours!
Personalised linen, whether it be bathrobes, set of towels, sheets or even cocktail napkins is an all time luxury for any couple. Fall in love each time you eat, sleep and bathe with some of the most luxurious linens and cottons.
5) Travel & Explore
If you know the couples honeymoon destination, an ‘experience’ whilst on their honeymoon such as, diving with sharks or dolphins is always a memorable gift to give. The Travel Attache, a unique boutique travel concierge who we work very closely with for honeymoons will organise an unforgettable gift for anyone’s dreams and create memories that will last a lifetime.
If this all still feels a little daunting, Sara Farah registry consultants will take the ‘Guest Work’ out of what may seem to be a time consuming experience, to guide and point out pieces within the comfort of our showroom over tea coffee and sweet delights.
