Welcome Bags for Guests

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow maui bound brides,

 

I starting to get ideas for my welcome bags for our guests.

Any ideas of items to include? I really want to keep the price down. Is anyone using regular gift bags? I need about 20. I've heard about the Maui Costco, any ideas?

 

Thanksdrum.gif

Oriental Trading Company has lots of cheap ideas/things to put in bags.. that is where I've bought alot of my stuff

 

I'll also be buying snacks and bottled water from the Maui Costco when we get there :)

That is a great idea! I thought about doing that as well but haven't made my mind up. It will be a last minute thing but here is what I came up with....

 

Chips and pineapple salsa

Hawaiian music cd

disposable camera

chapstick

sunscreen

bottles of water

all or some of these items wrapped in a beach towel

If you're getting stuff when you get there, definitely check out Costco & any ABC store. The ABC stores had lots of souveniours & things you could use in the bags. They also have treats like macadameia nuts & coffee in all types of flavors!

You could also give out t-shirts because they usually have shirts that vary from 5 for $10, 4 for $10, etc. Ofcourse the quality of the t-shirt varies.

Oh, they also have magnets, cups, leis, lots of variety.

I also went to Halo Hatties. They had a great variety as well.

I'm leaving for Maui in 50 days. It's been a crazy year. After researching every destination wedding book and surfing the net, I'd like to suggest a couple of things:

1) bug repellent (I found cute single use packets online...minimus.biz)

2) sunscreen (try to get smaller packets as opposed to large bottles. Some people may be sensitive to the active ingrediants in your offering)

3) local region maps. If everyone is flying in, they won't know the first place to grab a quick snack or a yummy breakfast. Your guests will definately thank you for the options.

I agree with the bug repellant. I got bit up & I used the repellant.

I picked up some "Maui Gold" or "This Week In Maui" books at the airport when we arrived. They have tons in baggage claim.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
