During the hustle and bustle of planning your wedding, your hotel welcome bags can sometimes fall to on the back burner. But with a little bit of preparation and some help from local experts (like us!), curating a welcome bag that delights, surprises and engages your guests doesn't have to be stressful. When done right, a welcome bag can be a perfect way to show guests your appreciation and kick off the weekend of festivities.
What type of items would your guests enjoy?
To get started on what to include, think about the type of guests that are attending your wedding. It's likely that many people have traveled at least 30 minutes by car or even by plane to attend your big day so include items that can help them settle in and relax. Think a salty snack, perhaps a healthy granola bar, a sweet treat and a mini alcoholic beverage.
The Day After...
If you're really thinking ahead, you can also provide your guests with a few items to help them get on the next day. After a long night of celebrating, your friends and family may need a pick me up. Include a mini cold brew coffee, a calming essential oil spray or perhaps a map to the nearest coffee shop!
