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.

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

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
