One of my favorite trends in the last few years has been a welcome bag for wedding guests. These are a great way to show your appreciation for you guests as they arrive from out of town to celebrate – or to welcome your bridal party, too. I’ve seen some incredible ideas for welcome bags over the years, including some super custom to wherever your wedding is taking place. Today, I want to share some of my favorite ideas for your wedding welcome bags! All of these can be found on Amazon and put into your bags to help your guests feel super welcome and appreciated.
The Perfect Bag
Finding the perfect bag really depends on how many welcome bags you’re planning to make. If you’ve got a large number, consider a paper bag. If it’s only a few people, you could opt for a canvas or custom tote! Depending on the contents of your welcome bag, you may also want to use smaller bags inside the big bag to hold like items together.
No one appreciates a snack more than someone who’s been traveling! Consider a few light options that won’t go bad for your guests. Mints and gum are also always a great option to add into your welcome bags, too. One other great option here are small water bottles or packs to help with hydration – especially for the morning after your wedding! Finally, if you’re looking for more snack ideas, consider asking a local baker or food shop help you create a personalized snack to welcome your guests.
Weddings are parties! The next morning can be pretty rough for people if they’re not careful. Consider adding in a few options to help them feel a bit better in the morning! This could be things like make up wipes, ibuprofen, or even eye masks.
After traveling into town, everyone’s ready for a little refresh. Try adding some hand sanitizer, tissues, and wipes into your welcome bags. They’re a great way to help your guests stay healthy!
As you can see, wedding welcome bags are an easy way to show your loved ones that you were thinking of them – and are grateful they made it to join you. Throw in whatever makes sense for your wedding weekend and don’t forget a local treat or too!
