This is all new to me. What is the purpose of these bags? Is it just a gift to your guests telling them thank you for coming?? Sorry if I sound stupid. I am just trying to figure out if I need to be doing something along those lines. There is just going to be a total of 6 of us for the renewal ceremony. They are my dh and myself, my 2 kids and their boyfriend/girlfriend. We are paying for everything for them(the whole trip). Any suggestions of some basic things I should take? They are all going to be in the ceremony also. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Denise,

 

Maybe it's a little bit of 'thank you for coming' along with 'we were thinking of things to make your stay more comfortable'.

 

I went to a wedding in a different state where they gave us a gift bag with chips, chocolates, gum, water bottles, snack stuff that was nice to have and a thank you note. We ate it all.

 

With destination weddings, I have seen people include items that maybe people will need or maybe don't know they need until they get there, in addition to small gifts.

 

There is actually a 'sticky' in this sub-forum that includes OOT pictures which could be helpful to decide what you would like the to be.

Thanks for the info! Yes, we are paying everything, the airfare, hotel, food etc. Then again it's my kids and their SO. I may still get some things that would be helpful. I will look through the links. I will also get them each a little thank you gift for being a part of our ceremony.

Yeah they are pretty much to Welcome your guests and to tell them thanks for traveling to your wedding. Alot of times they will add a welcome letter, maps, list of activities. It can be easier than telling a bigger group of people absoutley everything there is to do and where it is.

You shouldnt worry about doing them. Those are just welcome bags... to thank them for coming so far... I think your guest could afford to pack well. You might want to take along a first aid kit for everyone just in case.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
