Here Come the Brides!
Help your customers celebrate everything from “yes” to happily ever after with our wide array of wedding-worthy products.
Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something blue …
With approximately 2.5 million weddings in the United States each year, chances are, some of your customers are in the wedding business or planning a wedding of their own. So of course it makes sense to offer some wedding-worthy pieces in your stores. In fact, with estimates valuing the wedding industry at $40 million per year, it’s a smart business move, a real smart business move.
But what if your store isn’t solely focused on weddings? Look for products that have some versatility, that can be marketed to all kinds of customers for all kinds of uses, including weddings. From glass to lace to metals to color-specific selections and vintage-inspired treasures, Melrose International has an array of special treasures and keepsakes that would bring beauty to any shower, any soiree, and of course, the big day.
Nothing says sophisticated beauty quite like glass. For weddings in particular, we love our Glass Domes. They would be the perfect crowning touch to a small flower arrangement or to protect show-stopping wedding accessories like her veil or bridal bouquet
For a touch of vintage charm, suggest she grace the gift table with one of these vintage-look Boxes. Featuring linen coverings accented with faux leather trim, one of these sophisticated boxes would make a pretty card box or the perfect place for wedding favors, like mini bubbles or satchels of birdseed.
Our antique-look Mini Photo Frames would lend a touch of Victorian charm to any wedding décor. They range in sizes from 4.5” to 6” and feature intricate scroll-work designs that would make adorable place card holders at the reception or lovely wedding favors for guests to take home.
Sophisticated style meets ornate metalwork to create this beautiful set of White Lanterns. Three sizes, each has a hinged door, hanging loop and glass inserts to reflect candlelight beautifully. Paired with real or flameless candles in a variety of sizes, they would add an elegant look to any wedding reception tablescape.
Always a favorite, especially for weddings, are our beloved flameless candles. To create the perfect (and worry-free) wedding ambiance, we suggest our LED Wax Dripping Pillar Candles in white. These candles look and feel like real wax candles and feature a four- or eight-hour timer and long battery life (ensuring that no candle will burn out during an event). With multiple sizes to choose from, including tapers, they can be used at the ceremony or mixed and matched to create a cozy table arrangement. Our flameless candles also come in other colors, like ivory, beige, red and green, so there’s an option for almost any color scheme.
