Many of her guests had travelled over 5,000 miles to attend her wedding in March, so it’s no wonder Billie Faiers wanted to give them a little something back to say thank you. The Mummy Diaries star revealed the thoughtful gift she gave to each guest on her wedding day with Greg Shepherd in the Maldives on Instagram, and it may well inspire brides-to-be currently in the wedding planning process!
Sharing some close up photos of her pretty wedding tablescapes, which featured bronze tealight holders, beautiful blush pink and white flowers, and white tablecloths, Billie explained she recruited a poet to write individual poems for each guest based on their personalities and some of the happy memories they have shared together.
Billie Faiers revealed she gave each of her wedding guests a personalised poem
"The personal touch. I think when you plan a wedding it’s always lovely to do something personal for your guests. The amazing Jess from @worditrhyme created a personalised poem about every single one of my guests and we used them as name cards on the table," Billie explained.
"My guests absolutely loved them. Greg and I sat with the extremely talented Jess one day and told her stories, memories, descriptions and more about all of our guests… and she created individual poems that everyone took home with them," she added.
