Wedding welcome bags can come in all shapes and sizes. You may be opting for a sweet gift for your out-of-town guests, or you're hoping to add an extra special touch for those traveling a distance for your destination wedding. For some, you may have even chosen to put together a welcome bag for everyone attending your wedding.
But it's important to remember that welcome bags aren't just there for show. They provide a glimpse of the festivities to come—allowing you and your partner to effectively welcome your guests and highlight the most important parts of the weekend. Plus, they provide a thoughtful, personalized package of goodies.
While a typical welcome bag consists of basic wedding-day essentials like water bottles and mints, couples are finding ways to incorporate their personality into the details. Highlighting a locale's unique food and beverages, adding in helpful maps and guides, or pampering your guests with a few extra special touches can go such a long way.
If you're looking for an idea for wedding party favors, a personalized wedding welcome bag might be the perfect solution. Cater a welcome bag to each of your wedding party members or fill bags of essentials with items everyone will love.
Welcome bags allow you to get creative and to mix-and-match complimentary items like olive oil and bread or even whiskey and chocolate. Plus, they provide the perfect opportunity to tuck a sweet note inside letting your guests know just how thrilled you are to have them with you to celebrate. And while there are so many options out there to put together a unique welcome bag, it all boils down to finding items that both you and your partner are excited to share with your guests
