Create A Custom Wedding Welcome Bag
Depending on the size of your wedding, you may not be able to greet each guest personally, so a wedding welcome bag is a great stand-in to say “Hi! Thank you for being here.” Wedding tote bags are especially popular with destination weddings or if a large part of your guest list is traveling from out-of-town. No matter your theme or size, personalized tote bags add a unique touch to the prewedding experience for each guest.
Deciding on a custom tote bag isn’t that challenging. With all the color options and scripting detail, you can easily find a combination that matches your wedding colors and greets guests in a way that reflects you and your partner’s personalities. Deciding what to stuff in each bag, however, can be a little challenging. What do you give your wedding guests? Some wedding favors reflect the wedding theme – like personalized sunglasses for a beach wedding – while other gifts are handpicked by the couple as their favorite items. If you’re planning to surprise your guests with welcome tote bags, check out our themed goodies for inspiration on what to put inside.
For out-of-town guests, a bag full of snacks and beverages that make your hometown unique is a great introduction to the area. Do you have a local brewery that makes a custom drink? Or maybe the locally owned bakery has a special recipe for a cookie you can only find in your hometown. Fill the tote with treats they’ll only find while visiting your zip code.
Local or not, you know what you like! Create a wedding welcome bag with snacks that you and your partner love. Whether you load up on a Netflix and chill style weekend or the snacks are included in your bag wherever you go, create a tote filled with goodies hand selected by you and the groom.
Brave The Elements
Are you hosting an outdoor wedding with a beach ceremony? Hook your guests up with a pair of shades. For the barn wedding that will host an outdoor fire at the reception, create a smores pack with chocolate bars, marshmallows and graham crackers. If your cocktail hour features a local bourbon, include personalized shot glasses in the tote so guests can sample the hometown flavors.
Not sure what to include in your wedding welcome tote? Everyone loves late-night snacks. Pack the bag full of your favorite movie candies, popcorn, and drinks. Your wedding tote will be the perfect favor when guests arrive home after the reception and want to enjoy a midnight snack.
Create a custom wedding tote bag for your guests by choosing a matching color and thinking of a fun word or saying for the front of the bag. No matter what you choose to fill the tote with, guests will be able to use the wedding favor long after your nuptials are official.
