    Wedding giveaway gifts are the gifts being given away by the newly wed couple to all guests attending the wedding party to show their thanks for the guests' attendance.
    1. Is my above understanding of the subject correct?
    2. Is the above writing correct?

    I have made a couple of amendments to your actual writing. I've never heard the phrase "wedding giveaway gifts" but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I've heard "wedding favours" or possibly "party favours".

    Definitely - wedding favors, or party favors.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
