Weekend Schedule & Maps
With most of your guests being from out-of-town, they will probably stick around for a few days before and after your wedding weekend. It is very important to make sure your guests know where they should be and when they should be there at all times during your wedding weekend. Include a wedding festivities schedule, a map, and any other important information they’ll need to know (dress code, parking, etc).
Drinks & Snacks
Give your guests a taste of what’s to come during your wedding weekend. Consider adding bottled water, juice, or iced tea, and don’t forget some bubbly! A small bottle of champagne or sparkling juice to celebrate the occasion. Make it personalized and add a custom label too! In addition to the drinks, don’t forget to include some tasty snacks. Add a few of your and your future spouse’s favorite treats and if your town is known for a yummy treat, add it too!
We love local postcards! They are a fun and inexpensive addition to your welcome bags. Add a few fun postcards from a local souvenir shop and don’t forget some classic vintage ones too! You can find these online or even at a local thrift store.
And of course, your wedding guests might forget a few necessitates. So adding a few items like a lint roller, wrinkle release spray, stain wipes, a sewing kit, aspirin, lip balm, sunscreen and more will make your wedding guests feel comfortable. And of course, it will be very appreciated by your out-of-town guests. We love the addition of a mini hangover kit too. You can add things like painkillers, eye masks, and a vitamin tablet or sachet!
Thank You Note
The most important item to add to your welcome bags is a handwritten note. While it does require some extra time, it really goes a long way in showing your wedding guests how much you appreciate them joining you on your wedding weekend. We hope you enjoy these.
