Guest baskets have become an integral part of Indian weddings. Whether you are hosting out-station guests in a guest-house, having a resort wedding or organizing a five star hotel wedding – there is a basket idea for each style and price range.
There are 2 steps to making a great guest basket – the items included and the presentation. I wish people wouldn’t just throw in all their items into a cane basket, instead think a little more about the theme and presentation. In weddings planned by professional wedding companies this is usually taken care of, but if you are going the DIY route following are 3 guest basket options with personalized touches.
THE CASUAL BASKET (Under Rs.200)
The first step is to plan your budget per guest basket. For this under Rs.200 basket I have used a paper basket (Rs.15 including glue), 2 bottles of 500ml water (Rs.10 each = Rs.20), A5 size itinerary print (Rs.4), blue paper strip (Rs.2) nuts (Rs.15), toothbrush (Rs.15), toothpaste (Rs.17), cookies (Rs.40), giveaway present key-ring (Rs.35), stickers (Rs.24) and plastic pouches (Rs.10) – giving a total material cost of Rs.197 only.
