Summers Proposal and Vision Board

We'd be honored to work with you to bring your big day to life. After our preliminary discussion we've created a vision which we hope you love and will highlight your day just as you've envisioned. 

  • After you've reviewed our initial proposal please email us at hello@kansascitybox.com with your likes/dislikes and/or order requests. Once we've established each of the products you love we'll work with you to fine tailor your gifts to their perfection. 
  • Some brides or couples love to be 100% hands on and some brides or couples love to leave the creative juices to us. Just let us know how much involvement you'd like!
  • Do you have an event planner? Would you like to pass this project on to them? No problem! Email us at hello@kansascitybox.com with your event planners information and we'll get in touch within 24 hours!
  • We want your big day to be stress free! Once we've finalized your gifts and payment you can sit back and we'll handle the rest. Don't worry delivery is included with every gift. 
  • Please note: We purchase product in bulk and do not have access to all samples until after the order is placed. For that reason we utilize our vision board with inspiration, products to which we have access, and previous events we've worked.

reception

Budget: $20 per person 

I have a few different ideas or routes we can go here - Just let me know what you like! 

  • Option A: 1 Gift for each guest
  • Option B: Several Smaller Gifts 

Option A:

A mini version of The Kansas City Box's most popular gift, The Taste of Kansas City. The Taste of Kansas City is a wonderful well rounded gift that can be tailored to reflect both the person gifting, a snapshot of local Kansas City offerings, plus a lot of delicious goodies for guests to enjoy! 

The Taste of KC - Mini

  • Wooden Keepsake Box or White Hat Box 
    • Photo 3 and Photo 1 
  • Mini Gate's BBQ Sauce 
    • Photo 5
  • Custom Popcorn or Topsy's Popcorn Mini Bag
    • The labels can be customized to reflect the overall theme of your day. 
      • Photo 8 - this was a baby shower label but we'd change this to reflect your style! 
  • Mini Cookie Pack 
    • We could go a couple different route's here:
      • Dolce makes a pack of chocolate chip cookie as seen in Photo 7. Dolce has also offered to put together a custom cookie or double dark chocolate cookie bundle, in a small individual baggie, and tied with twine. 
      • SweetsByRachel makes adorable custom cookies such as these Shuttlecock cookies in Photo 6. She can make any vision come to life. A few more examples of her work she's done are an all white outlined Kansas City skyline cookie, and the Charlie Husle blue heart KC. These cookies would also be individually bagged, and tied with twine.
  • Murphy Family Ranch 
    • Small Honey sticks instead of the glass jar of raw honey 
  • Andre's Chocolates
    • We could do a single truffle pack - Photo 3 reflects the look of their truffles. 
      • Have you tried their truffles? I picked up a dark chocolate truffle as a sample yesterday and holy cow it was amazing! 
    • Alternative: A mini chocolate Andre's chocolate bar
      • I believe the packaging of this Andre's chocolate bar will pair really nicely with this gift! 
  • Coffee
    • Mini Sampler from Roasterie Coffee 
  • I would work with the person who created your wedding invitations or any signage to make an insert for this gift in the same styling. This insert can also express a heartfelt thank you or message to each of your guest. 
    • A very personal touch a something I believe guests would love. 

This is the ultimate gift guest will remember for years to come. We'll package these gifts up with ribbon and optional snips of greenery plus a thank you or take one tag. 

The total for this gift is $23.00 - being slightly over your budget I plan to talk a few of our vendors to bring the overall cost down to $20.00. 

 

option B:

Several smaller gifts which can be set up in different stations at your venue such as one at their seat, one as their name card, one as a parting gift. 

  • Mini Succulents wrapped in brown craft paper with a small thank you note 
    • Photo 9
  • Mini Box of Andre's or Christopher Elbow Chocolates 
    • Photo 3
  • Let Love Grow or Customiized Seed Packet
    • These are 100% customizable 
    • These have a heartfelt Thank You on the back of the seed packet 
  • Doughnut to go in a white box with your initials or thank you note
    • I'd suggest sourcing doughnuts from The Doughnut Lounge they have an amazing product and are well versed in working with both Dolce and in a wedding setting. 
      • Photo 2 
  • Copper Mug 
    • Laced with a Thank You note 
    • A popular gift we've done in the past due to the keepsake nature of the gift 
    • The cost for this is $18
      • Photo 11

We could do a variety of any of these gifts together. 

*See items you'd like removed or added? Let us know and we'll make it happen/adjust the price accordingly. 

 

hotel welcome to KC Gifts

Budget: $100 per couple 

The hotel Welcome to KC is a special way to welcome your guests who have traveled near and far to partake in your special day. This is a great opportunity to give these couples a gift that's both practical for their stay but also a snapshot of what Kansas City is all about. 

Items we love for this gift:

  • Wooden Keepsake Box
    • A gift in itself (these would be different from the reception boxes so we're not doubling up on couples receiving the same gifts)
  • We'll work to create a welcome packet to reflect your style and welcome your guests to Kansas City. This small packet will have details about Kansas City where to go, eat, visit, etc. We'll also include a schedule for wedding weekend festivities. 
    • Photo 5 and Photo 11 has the example of a booklet, skyline, and Welcome to [Kansas City]. 
  • Fresh fruit 
  • Sparkling Water 
    • Perrier Cans or Bottles - Photo 5 and Photo 14 
      • I think a cool local substitution here would Unbakery & Juicery water - Photo 1 
  • Fresh Granola from Dolce Bakery 
    • This comes fresh made in a clear bag tied with twine and the best snack 
    • Photo 3
  • Fresh Citrus (Orange) Juice 
    • Photo 10 
  • White Cookie with the Kansas City Skyline or French Macaroons 
    • Photo 13
  • A sweet of some kind
    • Because we're doing chocolate in the other gifts it might be nice to do caramels here. 
      • Andre's has a beautiful pack of caramels or Salt & Flint in Lawrence, Kansas
      • Photo 11 has a taffy example 
  • Each gift comes with fresh snips of floral and ribbon - Photo 7 and a complementary The Scout Guide Kanas City - Photo 16

The cost for this gift is $100 - free delivery to the hotel is included with these gifts!
