Wedding welcome bags shouldn't replace thank you notes, but going the extra mile to say, "I appreciate you being apart of my big day" will go a long way. Getting your guests stocked up on goodies for your wedding weekend will make them feel extra special for attending. That being said, you’ve got to fill your bags with the right goods to reflect your wedding vibe.
When you’re looking to fill your welcome bags with items your guests will love, there are some definite staples. You can’t forget water for hydration, something sweet, something boozy, and an all-important hangover cure. Local finds, maps and itineraries are special touches as well, but it’s important to think about the season as well as the location.
It’s easy to switch up wedding bag staples with seasonally appropriate choices. As you stuff your bags, think about the the refreshing drinks your guests might prefer in the spring and summer months and the cozy cold-weather goodies they’ll appreciate come fall and winter.
In addition to the welcome bag staples, you can also add in extra seasonal necessities to help your guests get through the weekend. Think about the sweltering heat you might be asking your guests to sit through at your outdoor summer soirée, or the chill that comes on a winter night. These special occasions call for extra-special welcome bag additions.
No matter if you're having a destination wedding or a local fête, welcome bags are a great way to show your guests who travelled from near and far how much you appreciate them. Consider these seasonal welcome bag ideas for goodies that will keep the party going all weekend long.
