When you are planning a wedding there are so many extra details that can be added to enhance the day, from creating an exciting itinerary of events, lighting, decorations, transportation and finding the perfect accommodations to suite each guests needs. With so many details to plan, we often forget the smaller details that really show your guests how much you appreciate them sharing your special day.
Whether you are inviting guests to a new destination or hosting your wedding in your home town, nothing says thank you for attending better than Personalized Welcome Bags. They can be delivered to guest hotels for destination weddings or handed out as guests leave your welcome reception or rehearsal dinner.
Your welcome bags can be a fun, creative way for you to incorporate your own personal style or theme into your wedding. The bags can include items that guests will use during your wedding and long after they return home.
Be sure to include items that your guests will enjoy and that can assist with planning their time with you.
Here are a few resources your guests will appreciate:
Map & Itinerary
Help your guests with planning activities during their trip by adding a personalized touch with an itinerary of events and a map of things to do in the area. Your itinerary can include the details of your rehearsal dinner, wedding and farewell breakfast. It can also give your guests the opportunity to know about other places to spend time with you, drinks at a local brewing company or winery, kayaking and paddle boarding or an afternoon poolside. The map can be customized to include where each event will occur and is a great resource for your guests to locate restaurants and shopping during their free time.
Snacks & Hydration
Be sure to include sweet & salty snacks and water bottles. Your guests will love your thoughtfulness to add snacks and water to their welcome bags, especially if traveling and enduring airport check-ins, flights and taxis to spend the weekend celebrating your nuptials.
After attending all of the amazing events you have planned it may be a good idea to include medicine to assist with rejuvenating your guests, which they will surely need after experiencing your fun-activity filled weekend of events. Add the things that your guests may forget to bring with them, like band aids and mouthwash.
After adding the basic essentials, now comes the fun items that allow you to incorporate your wedding design.
Here are a few ideas to help you find the perfect bag to reflect your wedding style.
Select bags that will match the setting. Incorporate color palettes with light blue, turquoise, burlap, and coral. The items in your welcome bags should remind your guests of their Sand & Sea adventure for years to come.
