Chances are, you won’t be able to greet all your guests upon their arrival, so a wedding welcome bag (or box) is a great way to help them feel right at home in their hotel room. Be sure to include a mix of items (water, sweet and savory snacks, local map) and just-for-fun treats. It’s the perfect way to kickoff the wedding weekend! Listed below is a step-by-step process to help you get started!
Step 1 - If you are putting a wedding welcome bag together, the first step is to choose a vessel. We recommend using a canvas tote bag, gable box, or wooden box.
Step 2 - Choose a beverage or two to include in each bag. Bottled water is a definite must and it something your guests will appreciate. You’ll keep guests hydrated without sending them to the hotel gift shop.
Step 3 - The whole idea behind the welcome bag is to make your guests' stay more comfortable. Fill their bags with something sweet and savory. We recommend sourcing items that are unique to your locale.
Step 4 - Keep your guests informed with all the details of your wedding weekend. We recommend including a welcome note, event timeline, phone numbers for a “wedding contact” in case they have questions, and any other important details specific to your event.
Step 5 - For an added touch we recommend including a local map with personalized recommendations. You can also include a copy of the local magazine or newspaper, and sightseeing brochures. Just contact the visitors bureau.
Step 6 - Have you ever gone to a wedding or an event and had too much fun? Salt & Pepper Co. carries “Recovery Kits” just for the occasion, and it’s a favor your guests will actually use. Weddings and events are typically about celebration, so don’t make your guests regret that last glass of bubbly.
