Wedding welcome bags?

Recommended Posts

We are going to have many out of town guests come in for our wedding, so we are making "wedding welcome bags" , please give us any ideas or suggestions you have for what we could put in the bags. Preferably inexpensive items, we are on a budget with these bags. Also, I am very crafty if you have any creative ideas as well. I like also BagsQ clothing and messenger bags for girls...

I found  mini Spanish phrase books for dummies and Spanish to English dictionaries to add into the OOT bags.  I found them for $1 at Target so they didn’t break the bank and I think they are a really cute touch. I am going to hit up Bath and Body works during their semi-annual sale, which I believe is right after the holidays and buy some hand sanitizer to add to my bags.  Also, I am going to add mini beach balls, which I will probably order from Oriental Trading

There are so many great ideas on these boards. I keep adding things to my bags bc there are so many things that I've seen that I wanted to copy:) luckily my fiancé keeps me in check so I don't go too crazy. Gotta pay for a wedding too and not just bags!

This is a great list! http://floridianweddings.com/2012/05/wedding-welcome-bag-summer-in-florida/

1 - Gift guests with a kitschy way to send a postcard home (don't forget the stamp!)

2 & 3 - Using cute glassine bags (and maybe some custom stickers?), add some tangy key lime candy slices and white chocolate key lime cookies to satisfy their sweet tooth

4 - Water for the room is essential, and Zephyrhills is from right here in Florida (available pretty much everywhere)

5 - For a healthier treat, include some delish mango snacks

6 - flip flops are a fun touch

7 - Stash everything in these eco-friendly jute & cotton bags... you can have them imprinted, but I'd add a sticker or tag instead so your guests can use them again & again

8 - These travel-size tubes of sunscreen are really affordable when you order in bulk

9 - Mmm, tangerine lib balm = perfect!

10 - Guests can easily carry these practical bug repellent wipes everywhere

11 - This Evian facial spray (perfect after a sunny outdoor ceremony) is a luxurious addition

Awesome ideas on here! Mini beach balls is something I really wanted to do, I wish I did! I ordered everything from Oriental Trading (and I've mentioned before, Canadian girls watch the shipping fees!) RIDICULOUS. I had my stuff sent to my BFF in Boston and when she came to Canada she gave them to my Mom.

 

-paper gift bag with initial B and our names, date, place

-lip balm

-mints

-golf tees

-shot glasses (they were more like plastic medicine cups) but hey, served the purpse

-paper fans with seashells on it, I had these placed on all the chairs at the ceremony

 

Everything had a sticker with B or our names and the place, date, in navy, my color. Shot glasses said Gracias!

 

I also wish I could have added a little Spanish dictionary, or Spanish for Dummies, I think that would have been super cute and helpful.

Small Pringles (box of 36 at BJ's) $7 put 2 in each bag

Mini chocolates (I bought a big bag from BJ's) $10 and I had enough for 15 bags

Frito lay chips- (box of 50 at BJ's) $10. 2 in each bag

Travel size toothpaste (pack of 4 at cvs) on sale for $2

Dr. Fresh travel kit with toothbrush, brush cover and travel bag (walmart) $1

I also bought a few boxes of Smashbox lip gloss at the Estée Lauder warehouse and added one lip gloss in each bag. These came out to be $3 each.

By the way, I also got my Clinique summer bags from the Estée warehouse for $5 each and they go great with my beach theme wedding.

I also put some of the stuff in Ziploc bags and will be adding the water in DR.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
