The custom of exchanging sweets between the bride and the groom’s family once the wedding is fixed and at the wedding is practiced even today. Earlier sweets were exchanged in cardboard boxes which you would get from the sweet shop itself. But today sweets are artistically placed in thalis covered with netted or woven fabric or ornamental boxes and displayed during the wedding rituals.

Apart from the eye appeal, these decorated boxes and thalis add to the wedding décor making it look more festive rather than just placing sweets in cardboard boxes. Also since it is usually done by family members you can get cousins and close relatives to help so that they feel involved in the celebration. You need not buy expensive thalis or boxes. Instead try and use stuff which is easily available and spice it up by using your creativity and imagination, keeping in mind the wedding theme. Useful tip – you could use fabrics like Bandhani or Lehariya as they are bright and will make the décor livelier. You could also use old brooches or earrings as motifs.

At Marry Me we specialize in Indian wedding gift packaging among other things. We would be glad to assist you with unique ideas for your wedding gift packaging.

    I’m getting engaged in 6months time. I’m looking for sweet-boxes, that comes across as a little stylish, yet simple.

    Could you provide me a product catalogue with an idea of your prices ?! Something likes that, would be of great help !

    Thanks x
