Good morning! I am so so excited to write this blog post! We have been working on something for a long, long time and I am so excited to finally announce that we are adding it to our service. At Happy to Be Events, we love to focus on how our couples experience the wedding planning process. We know that wedding planning can be at times pretty stressful, but we find that our couples who hire a wedding planner (us, hello!) tend to get to the wedding day not as stressed through the whole process.
Well, we wanted to elevate that experience to the next level.
A couple of months ago, Nicole of Part & Parcel reached out to me to connect, vendor to vendor. She and I hatched a plan to create beautiful gifts for our beautiful couples. The goal: invoke a relaxing and serene moment. We went back and forth with proposals and brainstorming for weeks. Finally, we found the perfect gift basket full of goodies for our couples.
All Happy to Be Events couples will now receive this gorgeous gift basket the night before their wedding full of goodies. In it, we have a Little Flower Comfrey Spearmint Soap, a bottle of Lavende Lavender Bath Salts, a Voluspa Blond Tobac candle that has hints of vanilla husk, sandalwood, and warm perique tobac.
Then, to top it all off, we placed them in a beautiful clean white gift box and tied it with a slate blue ribbon, preserved eucalyptus, and a little gift tag.
We can’t wait to give them to our lovely couples and see them light up with joy! I just know that they will be able to really relax when they use the bath salts and soap and light the candle! We imagine some very relaxing baths in their future.
Keep your eyes peeled for more collaborations with the awesome team at Part & Parcel!
