Welcome to Welcome Bags

February 7, 2011

Make your guests feel at home, especially those who have travelled outside of town to be with you on your special day. Leave an awesome welcome bag at the hotel to greet your guests. Include items unique to your wedding destination or theme.

Although the classic “hangover welcome bag” (water, Advil, vodka mini bottles & Bloody Mary mix)  is very handy post wedding celebration, we wanted to step it up a notch and be a little more original and creative.

 Bee original! Remember our “Bride-to-Bee?” This would be a perfect welcome bag to compliment her bee motif wedding.

A client from last spring used her black, white & yellow color scheme throughout her bag. She had black & white paisley bags & custom cookies designed with the black & white motif. She even went a step further & had personalized yellow beer labels added to the craft brews.

What says lowcountry more than a burlap bag with Southern Fried Peanuts and good ol’ homemade honey mustard.

Here are a few more ideas to get you thinking…

  • Are you having a winter wonderland wedding? Try throwing in some hand warmers, hot chocolate mix and some cozy socks.
  • Beach-themed? – Sunscreen, a bottle of water, a beach bowl & a  towel.
  • Is your wedding more rustic & taking place in the mountains? Think bugspray, hiking socks, and a map of local hiking trails.
