What’s in a gift?
While Emily and Walt were clicking away at expensive home essentials that they may never use or already had for their registry, Emily stopped and dreamt for a second. She envisioned her wedding with a spotlight as she entered her reception, sipping on a signature cocktail made just for her as they prepared for the toast, and a unique food display that amazed her guests, but she sighed as this all surpassed her budget. When Emily and Walt came to us at BG Events and Catering, we gave them an opportunity to have something more; a registry to include elements that would make up the dream wedding that she always wanted.
BG’s wedding registry website is a first for the industry. “We want to be able to give couples the celebration they’ve always wanted, and this service allows just that,” said Ken Barrett, BG Events and Catering’s Executive Director.
With the help of the BG Events and Catering team, couples can create a wish list registry of items they would like at their wedding and share it with their guest list. The guests have the opportunity to give a certain amount of money to any item on the wish list and contribute to the one-of-a-kind wedding celebration that the groom and his wife have dreamt of. There are a variety of items to choose from in the list including a gazpacho station, seafood station, and even helping contribute to the couple’s wedding cake design.
For Emily and Walt’s wedding, the bridesmaids pooled together to rent a photo booth for the reception, as the men pooled together to create a signature cocktail for the couple. Guests raved about these items days after the wedding, and these experiences were kept as life long memories.
Pots, pans, bed sheets and candles, most of this will be stored away in the cupboards of your new home. However, the memory of your wedding will constantly be lingering in your mind, it will be the one to share with people you meet every day, and it will keep a lasting smile on your face for years to come.
