A Crane Is Coming To You

Stephanie Gareri is The Wedding Co.’s project coordinator for The Chandelier of Cranes and is scouring the globe for newly engaged couples to participate by signing their names, wedding date and location to an origami crane.

Our crane obsession continues as Catherine and I assembled the first batch of Crane Kits that will be sent out to suppliers from The List. Once again, we were amazed at the collective impact the group of cranes made as we prepared the kits.

Crane Kits

Each kit contains Crane Chandelier Project description/instruction cards; a return envelope; and 1 to 20 pre-made origami peace cranes.

Here’s how YOU (industry professionals) help contribute to the chandelier project:

Remove the cranes from the package and place in a vase or on a dish. Display the description cards by the cranes. **DIY Tipif you really want to make an impact, watch our Crane Card Holder Video to learn this unique and creative way to display the cards.**

When an engaged couple comes in for a consultation, tour, meeting, tasting, etc. ask the couple to participate by signing their names, wedding date and city anywhere on the crane. Collect the crane from the couple.

Spread the word – give them a card so they can visit The Wedding Co. to watch the chandelier take flight.

Once all your cranes have been signed – mail them back to The Wedding Co. in the return envelope supplied.

They never fail to make an impact when grouped together!

Engaged Couples

Remember to mail us your signed crane or request a pre-made crane kit! OR get creative and watch the DIY video, fold a crane, sign it and send it to us. Trust me when I preach that once you fold one crane you will be hooked!

Taking flight – Catherine will be taking some crane kits with her when she travels to New York City on Thursday. Stay tuned for an updated crane count and to read about the NYC reaction to the Crane Chandelier Project.
