5 Must Have Items in your Destination Wedding Welcome Gift Bags

January 23, 2017


Hello there, bride to be! 


We've put together a list of the 5 must have items for your destination wedding welcome bags. You're guests will be thrilled to receive a personalized gift filled with sweet treats, area information, and an itinerary for their stay. 



Include any items you've planned for the week with dates, times,

and dress code. Be sure to list if the items are optional or restricted to

specific guests (like the wedding party).

How should your guests get around? Include local transportation

information - subways, city bus, taxis and preferred car services should

your guests choose to venture out on their own. Including a map with

transportation may be helpful but we recommend having your guests pre

download an app that can be used offline. Read about it here: How to get around without Cell Service 


Restaurant & Entertainment Guide

Remember that pre-wedding site visit you took to your wedding destination? Be

sure to include some local restaurants and activities your guests may enjoy

including pricing, hours and phone numbers. You can also check with the

local chamber of commerce for a pre made list.


Local Snack

A sweet and savory snack or drink for your guests is a nice addition to the

welcome bag. Coffee in Costa Rica, Cannoli's in Boston, Mini Bottles of

Appleton Rum in Jamaica, Bagels in Philadelphia, Cookies from Levin

Bakery in New York

- other examples include locally roasted nuts, local

popcorn, & locally made adult or non alcoholic beverages.

If you opt to

not go local, little packs of nuts and mints are a nice addition.


Destination Must Haves


Going to the beach? Include a pair of sunglasses or sunscreen.

Getting married in the desert? Include umbrellas or fans.

Worried about pesky bug bites? Add a bottle of natural, neutral smelling bug spray. 



Convince Items 

Guests will be thankful of the thought you put into essentials they may

have forgotten. Include items such as a travel toothbrush, aspirin, bandaids, bottled water, etc...


We hope this list helps you start planning an awesome treat for the people who mean the most to you.
