Make it Count for the Big Day!

An advent calendar doesn't just have to be for Christmas. It's a great way to give gifts for a countdown to an event such as a wedding. It’s so much fun to put together and an ideal gift to give to bridesmaids and maids of honor. You can theme the calendar to match your wedding or your favorite movie for example. You can choose the length of the countdown you want and have one gift for each day leading up to the occasion. So if you are going to do the whole month you'll need 30 gifts for your calendar. If the wedding is June 2nd then you would give them the gift on or around May 2nd and if you are doing a calendar that is a week long you would give that to them the week before the wedding. Check out these Wedding Advent Calendar Gifts
