Are you having a destination wedding? If so, have you thought about how to welcome your guests to town? We think a festive welcome gift, box, or bag is a perfect way to set the tone for the weekend and thank your guests for traveling to celebrate with you! So, we’ve rounded up a few favorite fun wedding welcome bag ideas as well as just what you should put inside of them!
Everyone’s hungry after any time spent traveling- or a night full of dancing. Ensure your guests have things to nibble on when they arrive on property or return to their room. This is also a great way to incorporate treats that have a sentimental meaning to you as a couple or the town where you’re celebrating!
2. A Map
Whether you’re getting married on the property where everyone is staying, or down the beach/road a ways, it’s essential (and fun!) to equip your guests with a map! Nowadays, there are so many talented illustrators and stationers who can create something totally custom for your big day.

Inform your guests about the weekend or day’s festivities! Is there a welcome dinner or rehearsal they should be at? Beach games or spa appointments? This is the perfect time to give them the run of show.
4. First Aid Essentials
Blisters from dancing to much? A headache from those signature cocktails? Make sure party-goers are prepared with things like band-aids, tylenol, and sunscreen.
If you’re having a destination wedding, there are probably quite a few things about the place that are special or sentimental. Give your guests a taste of why you love the city so much with a little souvenir, or something from that particular place.
Pop the champagne! It is the wedding weekend, after all! Treat your guests to a welcome toast by including mini champagne bottles or a couple of beers. Sparkling water is always a great alternative for a non-alcoholic choice as well. Cheers!
