When creating your wedding day, you’re not only building the picture-perfect event for you to enjoy with your partner. But you are also sharing this crucial moment with your closest family and friends.
In building out your wedding, one of the critical parts to end the night and leave your guests with a memento from the day is picking out the perfect wedding favour. This is the chance to get creative and gift your loved ones something that will remind them of your joyous celebration and thank them for making an effort to share it with you.
Buy wedding favours from local markets
Picking out the perfect wedding gift for your guests can be challenging. Every wedding guest list is incredibly diverse. It often includes older family and friends, children, co-workers, and more. You don’t want to choose something tasteless and overdone. On the other hand, you don’t want to go over the top and extravagant. The wedding gift market is often repetitive. It is littered with old ideas that do not leave that lasting impression that completes the day. Nothing speaks creativity, appreciation, and authenticity like working directly with artisans from street markets and art districts worldwide to provide the ultimate wedding favor.
By using Pigee, we connect you to hundreds of artists from across the globe to provide unique and unforgettable presents your guests will cherish for a lifetime. When using local artisans, you handpick crafts and gifts that match any theme, leaving your guests with the preferred send-off gift while supporting these businesses directly.
Example: The Art of Mexico
One of our favorite artisan markets for wedding favours is Mexico, a beautiful country with an incredibly diverse culture. Pigee connects you with Mexican artisans from thousands of markets and art districts across the hundreds of cities. Mexican art is influenced by indigenous solid cultures and traditions and European and Spanish influences. These make Mexican art vibrant and one of a kind. Today, Mayan, Aztec, and countless other indigenous cultures still influence much of the art seen in local markets. Such art includes Aztec calendars, Mayan statues and paintings, colorful pottery, kitchen tools like molcajetes, and hand-crafted items. These fantastic crafts trace their history back thousands of years. In addition, Spanish and European influences have inspired the most beautiful silver jewelry, intricate Mexican tiles, and catholic inspired art perfect for religious wedding favors.
Mexican artists offer a wide variety of crafts that are perfect for your perfect wedding day. They can come in a wide range of colors, materials, and sizes that work for countless themes and ideas. The street markets in Mexico are overflowing with hand-carved wooden cutlery, intricately braided bracelets, complex painted wooden sculptures, and numerous types of art that can help leave the lasting impression you want for your wedding day.
If you work with Mexican artists instead of a standard corporate wedding vendor, you can choose gifts that fit the specific theme of your wedding. It can be based on color, location, or sentiment. Of course, anyone can get a monogrammed coaster or personalized candy. But giving a gift that is designed specifically for your wedding adds a special touch. What an incredibly rare and elegant wedding. We promise to guide you along the process in finding the right vendor that fits your needs in both quantity, quality, and design. Your satisfaction is always our main concern as we work tirelessly to make sure the vendor you work with is right for you.
The Benefits of Sourcing Local Artists
Working with these craftsmen directly removes the added expenses that many traditional weddings cannot afford. Providing unique internationally-themed gifts is not impossible. However, they are often costly. You will receive these fantastic gifts at reasonable prices by connecting with local artists directly.
Another perk of working with local artisans is that in celebrating your wedding, you are also supporting small businesses that don’t get the global attention and reach that many other companies have. The artists we work with are directly from the street markets and art districts that make many of these places unique and sought after. By using our services and working with local masters, you are helping spread the reach of their art, their culture, and their message and will intertwine their works with your wedding.
Your wedding day is, without a doubt, one of the most important days of your life. Making your dream day really takes years of planning and ideation, and we are here to help. Every wedding has guests, whether they are many or few, old or young, close family, or everyone in the neighborhood. The best way to leave a lasting impression is to give them a unique and meaningful gift. We want to help you create that lasting memory for you and all your guests.
