Wedding Wrapping Paper

I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I worry about wedding gifts, specifically people not being able to identify my card/and or gift.  Since people don't normally open your wedding gift in front of you, you can't be like 'oh that's from me' if they get confused.  I worry that my card is going to get separated from my gift, especially if it is wrapped rather than in a gift bag.  It probably shouldn't bother me so much, but my parents drilled into my head at a young age the importance of thank you notes (I am the only person my age that I know who sends a thank you note for every gift I receive) so that probably has something to do with it. 

Last weekend, Boyfriend and I went to our fifth wedding of the year (only one more to go!).  It was one of his buddies so I put him in charge of the gift.  He decided to get three different things, meaning I had to wrap three different boxes.  This was a problem for me because I couldn't even rely on my normal strategy of taping the card to the box.  Luckily, I had an idea when I got home--my wedding wrapping paper is plain white, so I got out my stamps and stamped on each of the boxes.  If it is a super fancy wedding, this might be a little to casual but it was perfect for this occasion.  It added a little interest to the packages and made it impossible for them to not know who they were from.

(Please excuse the terrible pictures.  I realized right before we were about to leave that I had forgotten to photograph them and had to rush to get it done before Boyfriend carried them away).

  1. What a great idea! The only time I give a card with a gift is at weddings...any other time I just let them know when opening it(3 year old kids do not need a $3 dollar card that their parents are just going to toss later).
    I like this and will have to do this the next time I give a gift.
