Welcome Bags for Guests!

26 December 2011

They say that first impressions are everything and that may be true. However, when it comes to wedding guests little treats upon check-in can be a delightful surprise but are totally optional. 

Welcome Sign on Door

What better way to give your guests important information regarding the city you'll be hosting the wedding in! You can include maps, coupons, directions and even hot chocolate or tea packets just to make them feel more comfortable in their hotel room. Although sweet, when I checked with hotels about my guest bags, it had to be generic not personalized for the distribution to be free. 


Snacks, Snackies and Treats!

If your guest are planning on travelling, consider how amazing it feel to kick off your shoes after a long flight or drive and have some chips or a bottle of water. Well, as a step up to just a map and directions, put in some of those snacks. Watch sales at your local grocery stores and with coupons you can purchase chips on sale for less than $1. Blogs such as Faithful Provisions or Krazy Coupon Lady provide coupon match ups so that you can get the best deals. 

Local Sampler


If your guests haven't been to your city before what better way to welcome them than with some locale goodies. Whether it be wines, chocolates, food or even soft drink. You could theme your whole welcome basket on your city.

The vessel is important too so plan ahead if you are in the budgeting phase and get some really cool personalized tote bags to put snacks and overnight goodies in. Your guests can keep those bags, remember you and still have a functional purpose which many wedding favors are moving towards.


DIY Welcome Gift


Make some of your own treats or stuff in the guest bag such as homemade soaps or  body scrubs. On Pinterest you can find hundreds of awesome DIY recipes that are inexpensive things you probably have around the house.
