SSE Gift Guide

Spencer Special Events - Friday, December 18, 2015

We love this time of year at Spencer Special Events and all the happiness that it brings. The smell of Fraiser Firs, warm fires, gathering for holiday parties, putting up Christmas decorations and the joy of gift giving!

Christmas is a perfect time to reflect on a wonderful year and all of the couples that we had the pleasure to work with on their special day. We want to share some thoughtful gift ideas for those newlyweds in your life. 

What a better way to remind them of their wedding celebration through picture gifts, a newlywed book of firsts, a Gullah basket filled with local Low Country goodies, or a symbolic ornament to hang on their first tree. 

Christmas time is also a great time to think about our up coming Bride and Grooms and gift ideas for their exciting year ahead!

The gifts below will have the groom looking stylish (maybe even some wedding attire) and ready to host a party with his bar goodies!

We love when our darling ladies have the cutest and most stylish accessories. Or you could set her up with a subscription to Birchbox to try beauty samples for the big day! 

Happy Holidays and Cheers to the New Year from the ladies here at Spencer Special events!
