What to Put in Your DIY Welcome Bag
Designing DIY welcome bags for your wedding guests can take a lot of thought (and even more time!). You would want these welcome bags to be perfect for your loved ones, who are probably coming from all over the country to celebrate with you. These bags are the ideal token of appreciation for their love and support. So, they should have a personal touch and represent the excellent relationship you share with your guests.
Here are some excellent ideas for things you can add to your DIY wedding welcome bags. Let’s take a look!
1. Start With a Gorgeous Favor Box or Bag
Before we think of the contents of your welcome bags, the first thing to decide is what will hold these knick-knacks. At My Wedding Reception Ideas, we have a stunning variety of wedding favors boxes and bags that you can pick from. They come in different sizes, shapes, and themes, so you can choose one depending on your wedding colors and what goes best with your decor. We even have sophisticated wine boxes for your special aunt and offer personalization so you can add your initials and a loving welcome message on the packs!
2. Add an Itinerary for the Event
Once you have your welcome bag or boxes picked out and personalized, the next step is to print out wedding itineraries for them. Your wedding is a whole-day event, so guests should get a rough schedule of what to expect. It will help them plan their day better.
You can also add a seating chart and a little thank you note inside. Your guests will appreciate knowing that their presence is treasured at your wedding!
3. Candle Holders Add a Romantic Touch
Now, onto the fun stuff. It’s time to pick out the perfect wedding favors for your welcome bags. We always recommend brides start with candle holders as they give off a wonderfully relaxing and romantic vibe.
Our votive candles and candle holders come in different varieties, including:
- Beach themed candle favors
- Heart themed candle favors
- Personalized candle favors
Available in different colors and scents, these candles will set the perfect mood for your wedding and be a favorite among your guests.
4. Baked Goods are Always a Good Idea
You can never go wrong with gifting food, no matter the occasion!
Presenting cupcakes, cookies, or small pies to your guests in these super elegant, personalized boxes will have your guests overjoyed at the thoughtfulness of your welcome bags. It gives them a little something to munch on during the ceremony secretly!
5. Something to Keep the Drinks Cold
Finally, you want your wedding to be a joyful and fun experience for all of your guests. This usually includes a little bit of drinking as you all dance the night away!
Since you’ll probably have a bar at your wedding, why not gift your guests some can coolers and huggies to keep their drinks cool? These coolers act as the perfect insulation against heat, allowing your guests to continue sipping on their drinks while socializing at the reception and having a great time!
The lead-up to your wedding day can be super busy, especially if you prefer DIY-ing most of the decorations and invitation cards. But as you rush about managing everything, remember to take a deep breath in every once in a while and have fun with it all. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and you wouldn’t want to be stressed out for it all!
