Why art is a great wedding gift to give and how to choose it

Limited Edition Print by Mychael Barrat

For wedding guests struggling to find a present that is unique, personal and stands the test of time – why not give the wedding gift of art!

Original artwork is the perfect way to say congratulations to a newly married couple. It’s a unique gift that stands the test of time, that can be carried with them though their new life together, symbolising and commemorating their bond.

Whilst they may forget who gave them the bread maker or the towel set, a piece of art is a memorable present which can bring joy and beauty into their home every single day.

 

Here’s just a couple of reasons why we think Art is a great wedding gift to give:

 

WANT TO GIVE A WEDDING GIFT THAT’S EXTRA SPECIAL?

The results are clear - despite some of the more traditional marriage celebration conventions changing, couples in the UK still want to be spoilt on their big day and have simply become much more savvy in selecting gifts.

Whatever happened to sentimental keepsakes?

Half-heartedly ‘Liking’ a picture on Facebook just isn’t the same as getting a copy of said photo and putting it in a frame, is it? Flicking through a gallery on social media doesn’t compare to sitting shoulder to shoulder, flicking through the photos you’ve just picked up from Supasnaps, laughing at the memories you froze in time. The ultimate personalised wedding gifts were thoughtful albums, stuffed with special photos and keepsakes from the big day.

How much you should spend on that wedding gift

The upcoming wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has sent the nation into a wedding frenzy. With wedding season kicking of this month, guests across the country will be asking themselves the same questions: how much should I spend on a wedding gift and is it okay to give cash?!

Research* from personal loan provider, Hitachi Personal Finance, has got to the bottom of just how much the nation spends on (and expects to receive as)  a wedding gift, and if cash/vouchers or a physical gift is better.

Art: A unique wedding gift

Wedding gift of art

Finding a wedding present that is as unique as the happy couple can be a difficult task. A set of bathroom towels, although useful, can seem a little impersonal and won’t necessarily last a lifetime… That’s why art makes such a wonderful wedding gift; it’s original, personal and will make any new house immediately feel like a home. 

But where to find unique art that suits your budget, for the perfect wedding gift

The artist Anna Wright has a wide range of beautiful art prints which are full of affection, humour and originality and that will suit any couple (and budget) in celebrating their big day. Prices for her prints start at £25 and are all available to buy on www.annawright.co.uk
