Trousseau Packing Ideas That Will Leave Your Guests Spellbound
It’s not what you say but how you say it that matters!
Similarly, when it’s about wedding trousseau, it’s not what’s in there, rather how it’s presented that has become a trend. Since you’ll be having all your neighbourhood aunties visiting to check what you have got along with you, we have some trousseau packing ideas that will leave them stunned!
For the Big Items
Do you remember trunks? Not the trunk shorts, we’re talking about the carved wooden and tiled mosaic chests or boxes that once stored some of the most precious household things in the corner of your home. Though not in vogue, it makes for a great trousseau packing box that can neatly hold most of your clothes and linens, which you wouldn’t want to display out in the open. These trunks are sure to add a traditional touch to your trousseau. If you would like to spunk it up, you could opt for hand-painted trunks that look chic and stunningly awesome!

Decorated thaalis and trays are quite popular these days. They make for a perfect trousseau packing option when you want to highlight your dazzling bridal jewellery. These thaalis and trays are decorated in shining motifs, silver and gemstones work. Set your diamonds and pearls on a blue velvet surface and place them on a metallic decorated tray, while your kundan and gold jewellery will look impressive against the traditional red surface on a silver tray.
The Wedding Couture
Unlike the other clothes you’ll be carrying, the designer suits, formals and ethnic wear; gifts for your in-laws demand special attention and require extraordinary packing. Ditch those lifeless folding patterns and try out funky shapes like fan, boat or kite, and neatly pack the couture in protective cases with frills, flowers, beads and whichever decorative elements you desire.
Having a theme for your trousseau packing makes it attention grabbing. The colour coordination and arrangements will instantly attract your guests to your presentation. You could either match the theme to your overall wedding planning ideas or go completely contrast; the choice is yours. The advantage of keeping a theme around your trousseau packing is that you can add and present your personality to all things in display. It gives you the freedom to play around with the designs and showcase your charisma to people who are yet to know more about you.
Make Sure It Smells Good
The last and the most essential of all trousseau packing ideas we’ve specified so far is ensuring your trousseau is fresh and smells good. This could easily slip from the back of your head, but don’t you worry, we always have your back reminding you of these little things that make a big difference.
You could place some camphor tablets in your trunk to ensure your clothes smell fresh and don’t catch up the trunk smell. While for the others on display, add a little fragrance by placing a potpourri. You could maybe add some soothing aroma candles or essence sticks around just to add a traditional element to the décor.
