Are you planning your wedding?
Are you planning your wedding? Chances are you’re already overwhelmed with costs, service providers, fittings, tastings, guest-list arrangements, decorations and everything else that goes into throwing the biggest party of your life (did we mention the costs?).
Luckily, all of this tends to be totally worth it (and a year down the track you won’t believe you spent that much time debating the merits of different cake icings) and it will not only be a fantastic experience for you and your partner, but for all of the guests who have travelled from near and far to witness your big day.
Celebrate your wedding Traditionally
While it’s traditionally expected guests will gift the bride and groom with some kind of present to wish them well on this new chapter of their lives, it’s important to remember a gift is not a way of ‘paying’ for their invitation in the first place. In other words, if you’re throwing a wedding that ends up costing $350 per head, a guest shouldn’t be expected to fork out $350 in order to earn their place at the table.
A piece of art may not be every newlywed’s dream come true but for others, it will be and has been. So if you’re a couple who has decided to create an art wedding registry (which can actually be of huge assistance to guests who don’t know what to buy), there are a couple of things to keep in mind: first and foremost, just because you’ve decided to spend big on your wedding day, it doesn’t mean everyone else has to. From experience, most guests will be pretty generous and there may also be guests who cannot attend your wedding but would be keen to contribute towards a beautiful piece of art.
Tusk Gallery has created an online Art Wedding Registry
You can easily set up your very own Wedding Registry online and then let your family, friends, and guests know about it. This will give them the opportunity to gift you and your new partner a sum of money towards a piece of art (or anything else available at Tusk Gallery).
Later when all the excitement is behind you, drop into the Gallery or on any of our websites and choose a piece of art that will be with you for the duration. You may choose to use the whole sum for one painting, some people have added a bit extra to get the painting of their dreams or you can use the money to purchase several cheaper items. Whichever way you look at it, it’s a win-win situation for both you and the people celebrating your special day.
