Our couples are asking us all the time, “What gifts should I get for the people involved in our wedding?” Coming up with original, thoughtful gifts is tough when you are making other big decisions about your big day. We wanted to help our couples by bringing unique, custom gifts all in one place!
Plus (**Bonus**), we were able to show off our local McKinney vendors and boutiques. Most people don’t know about the hidden gems you can find for gifts and favors right here! We gave our couples a chance to check off some to-do items off of their lists and discover those gems.
The Grand Hotel, located on the square in downtown McKinney, opened their ballroom to host the evening. Rick’s Chophouse created savory small bites and delicious cocktails to top off the night while our guests perused the room.
