Even though we think a weekend on Bald Head Island is a treat in and of itself, it’s customary and polite to thank guests and members of the wedding party for making the trip to your destination wedding. From edible gifts to homemade sentiments, we’ve come up with 5 ways to say ‘thank you’ to your Bald Head Island wedding guests and give them with a little piece, or memory, of the Island to take back home.
People love food! So it may not come as a surprise to hear that edible wedding favors are always a hit. Locally, homemade cookies and treats from The Sweet Spot Bakery make the perfect favor to give, as guests can enjoy a little taste of the Island and a happy belly in one. Be sure to stop in next time you are on the Island, located behind Maritime Market, to taste test a few of the freshly made treats to make sure you are gifting your favorites!
Have any golfers in your group? Or just well-dressed men? Luckily, the Bald Head Island Golf Pro Shop makes it easy to check them off of your list with the Bald Head Club’s wide variety of premium clothing and signature golf shirts. With the option to customize your gift of choice with a Bald Head Island logo, your guests will remember, and re-wear, your wedding souvenir for years to come. You can buy customized Bald Head Island golf apparel online or by visiting the Bald Head Island Club during your next stay.
Finding a gift that will work for the whole family can be tricky. We love this idea from Room Service, a home décor and gifts boutique on the Island, to incorporate iconic bald head sweatshirts into a Bald Head Island blanket that can be passed around and used by all family members in the house! Find this already made blanket at Room Service (located near Maritime Market) or use your own old Bald Head Island tees & sweatshirts to make your own, here!
Some of the best things in life aren’t actually things at all. Help your friends and family make the most of their vacation on Bald Head Island by giving the gift of adventure with a stand up paddle boarding session (SUP) via the Island’s premier SUP shop, Coastal Urge. Coastal Urge is the headquarters for all things SUP on Bald Head Island (rentals, guided excursions and instructional sessions) and can provide a tailored experience for your guests to enjoy while here on the Island. Find out more about SUP or check out the Island’s other adventures available, here.
Last but not least, a great way to save money yet still show your appreciation is by making personalized favors yourself. Homemade vials of sand, made from the wedding location's stretch of beach, are simple, yet thoughtful gifts for memorializing the Island occasion. Perfect for guests of all ages, sand vials can be turned into pendants or ornaments with a tiny hook screw, branded with your wedding logo, or just kept fuss-free for a simple remembrance of the Island. The best part of all? You will need to plan a prior trip to Bald Head Island to collect the sand and prepare your favors! So darn!
