Introduction

Every blushing bride wants to have a memorable and romantic wedding that will be remembered for years with pleasant memories by all that attend.

The purpose of this eBook is to help accomplish this, even if you or the bride to be is on a tight budget. It’s not expensive catering and thousand dollar dresses that create lasting memories.

It’s the beauty of the day, the sunshine smile of the bride and the feeling of being special for that one moment in time, no matter if you are a guest or the bride herself. This is what makes weddings special, romantic and memorable.

Many brides spend a lot of money on expensive plastic wedding favors and gifts for the guests that have no sentimental value. Many guests also spend lots of money on new gifts for the bride and groom that really do not hold special meaning at all.

It’s rare that you see a true heirloom shared at weddings these days.

In a world full of manufactured material, it’s so much easier to just purchase something quick just so you can say you care, instead of actually making an attempt to show how much you actually do care.

“Wonderful Wedding Favors And Gifts” not only provides patterns for true heirloom gifts, but it provides also provides sweet memories as you crochet lovely sachets for your bridesmaids, or wonderful Victorian gloves for the lucky bride to be.

No matter what your budget, you will find that none of the projects provided in the eBook require more than $20.00 investment, most only require $5.00 for thread, stuffing and a crochet hook.

So even if your budget is tight, you’ll find your gift one of the most appreciated at the wedding, because it reflects much more value than money alone and also appears to be quite an expensive gift.

There is something provided for everyone in this manual. Sachets for bridesmaids and guest, Victorian purses, flowers, garter and gloves for brides as well as décor for the wedding table like nut cups and lacy looking napkin rings.

If you run a wedding related business, then these projects are wonderful items to add to your line of wedding gifts as well. If you do not operate a wedding related business, you can still make a nice profit by making these fabulous gifts for new brides to be.

3

There are many ways you can use these patterns for pleasure, joy, profit, smiles and lasting sweet memories. Be remembered 20 years from now as the guest that gave the bride a Victorian handbag, that is then used in her own daughter’s wedding.

Brides may glow with pride as they give their bridesmaids wonderful sachets that will be kept for many years to come, instead of tossed in a drawer, forgotten and eventually lost.

Help make your wedding as memorable as can be. Instead of rushing through trying to get things done, and buying a lot of manufactured junk that will soon be in the trash, take a moment and enjoy some time to yourself with a hot cup of tea while putting your heart and love into wedding gifts and favors that will be loved by all.

When you obtained this manual, you also received resell rights where you are free to resell this manual for whatever price you like, as long as you do not modify the content in anyway. If you do not have a website already, then I highly
