The versatility of open loop gift cards allows bridesmaids and groomsmen to afford out of town trips they may otherwise have to skip.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 11, 2013
GiftCard.com, the one stop shop for everything gift card, today released a new suite of gift cards designed specifically with bridal parties in mind. The new designs were created to make it easier for the bride and groom to thank the bridal party in a practical, personal, and meaningful way.
WeddingChannel.com estimates that on average, it cost $1,695 to be a bridesmaid in 2010, based on a survey of 20,000 brides nationwide. Bridesmaids are often required to pay for their own dresses, accessories, travel expenses, and gifts—and the expenses add up quickly. While some brides allow the wedding party to pick their own dresses and shoes, GiftCard.com offers an alternative for brides wanting to maintain a consistent aesthetic.
“Rather than give your bridal party a gift basket or jewelry, custom gift cards are a personal and practical gift for the wedding party,” said David Jones, CEO of GiftCard.com. “The versatility of Visa® Gift Cards allows bridesmaids and groomsmen to afford out of town trips they may otherwise have to skip. Travel expenses, the cost of a shower, and the bachelorette party are traditionally the highest expenses but your potential maid of honor isn’t the only person who might miss your wedding over expenses. Some guests are having to RSVP 'no' over wedding expenses alone.”
Visa Gift Cards from GiftCard.com have flexible load amounts so you can budget accordingly. Each recipient can use the funds on what they need ahead of time, or as unexpected expenses arise, like cab fare back to the hotel or replacing a broken heel. The light grey cards fit into almost any color scheme and covers the entire wedding party from the flower girl and ring bearer to the mother of the bride and groom. Each can be customized further by adding her name directly to the plastic. Mailed in the custom greeting card of your choice, you can send them to yourself to hand out in person or have them mailed directly to your recipient to help with on expenses leading up to the wedding. First class mailing is free.
