absolutely! I think people are going to need some direction when they arrive especially since most haven't attended a destination wedding before

We did one for the day-of that went into our welcome bags: 

 

 

700

 

And the onsite coordinators also put one together for everyone and had the front desk provide them to our guests when they checked in. It included our welcome dinner time/location.  That was a nice surprise!!

Any recommendations for places to get affordable bags in Eastern Canada? I'm jealous we don't have easy access to places like the Dollar Tree or Oriental trading.

I'm assuming it's generally best to give the OOT bags to guests at the airport before leaving? I'd love to have them waiting for guests as they check in to their room, but I'm thinking baggage costs would be huge if we took them all ourselves. What do others think? Did your guests have any problem with receiving an OOT bag at the airport?

We're buying our from Oriental Trading. They have great prices and their shipping to Canada is really reasonable!

I would rather not receive it at the airport, because most people already have a carry on and a personal item figured out before arriving at the airport.  If you give people a heads up so they don't have too much stuff though, it could work.  I know a lot of people do it that way.

Welcome bags

Hi There,

 

Just checking out your Welcome Bags and noticed that you got married  in Runaway Bay... I'm getting married at Gran Bahia on May 1 and was wondering if by chance that's where you got married... If so, how did everything go?
