Now, we know that weddings are famous for receiving presents. However, you probably want to buy and wrap some special gifts for the important people who helped you with organising the wedding or by being part of the day. Especially gifts for the two mothers, the fathers, the maid of honour and the best man.

Giving gifts to friends and loved ones who have helped you with the wedding is a rewarding experience, especially when you see the joy on their faces as they tear into the wrapping paper to find a present that has been carefully chosen just for them.

A Note of Using Silk Paper to Wrap Floral Arrangements

While a lot of brides have their floral arrangements done by a professional, some prefer to do it themselves. No matter if you do it yourself or have it done, silk paper is a great way of making your handheld and lapel wedding flowers look luxurious.

Choose an excellent quality silk paper like Clayrton’s silk tissue paper that is ideal to create bouquets and other floral creations. With a thickness of 28g/m², this muslin is a paper that is thicker and therefore more resistant than Sirius and cosmos tissue papers. Thanks to its thickness, this roll of the paper provide good support for bouquets.

How to Wrap Wedding Gifts Like a Pro

Before you can send paper and ribbon flying, you need to make sure that your wrapping job is just as impressive as the gift itself. In this article, we will share top tips from gift-wrapping experts to help you do just this.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll be able to wrap anything from small gifts to larger presents perfectly. Don’t get discouraged if your first few tries don’t have the super crisp corners and clean lines you desire – practice makes perfect.

  1. Get your supplies ready – wrapping paper, especially silk paper, scissors, ribbon, and double-sided tape – and start practising your wrapping skills.
  2. To make your package more personal, we suggest getting creative with your ribbon choice. Try wrapping a few layers of ribbon around the box or tying an extra large bow.
  3. Remember, it’s easier to wrap something square or rectangular. So do yourself a favour and pack your gift into a box and tape it shut.
  4. The cardinal rule for wrapping paper is that the thicker, the better. To make it easier to trim, look for a roll with a grid pattern on the back.
  5. Consider using silk paper to make your wedding gifts look extra sumptuous.
