What to Include in a Guest's Welcome Bag for Destination Wedding

A wise bride once drafted a little cheatbook after her wedding, to be a saviour to other hapless brides, and guess what topped her list? Welcome bags! Since you’re probably going to be having a crazy day, it can be quite a task to welcome each of your guests personally- welcome bags do it for you. Just throw in some thoughtful stuff, and you don’t have to give the whole welcoming drama a second thought! Just remember, customization is key.

Sweetmeats 

Nothings melts a jet-lagged heart more than a personalized candy bar. You have a whole score of treats to choose from- chocolate is obviously more versatile, but you can always work with cute gum candies and mints.

Drinks

An alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage is sure to bring a smile to your guests face. Why? Because it’s the best way to get the party started! In fact, it would also be a cool idea to pack in some vitamin water, preferably the flavored kind, for if your precious guests get famished. They will bless you for it!

Go Local

Trust us on this- nothing will get your guests in the mood like some local stuff. A local personalized souvenir can earn you multiple brownie points. (Cancun has some really alluring silver jewelry that can be found readily, and makes for a great souvenir) Besides the usual, throw in a local map, a local guide around town, and of course, a coffee table book about the local food!

Weather Essentials

This one’s for those who want to go the extra mile. For a cozy beach wedding, keep in mind that your guests are going to want to flirt with the beach. A welcome bag should carry beach essentials like sunscreen, a hat, a pair of sunglasses, a beach tote and a pair of flip flops. P. S. A hangover kit comes especially handy!

Wedding Itinerary

Ah, the most important of them all. Have a gorgeous wedding itinerary printed. It should ideally outline the venues and timings, but add in some information about the theme and cuisine for each event. This really puts your guests at ease and gives them time to plan their own outings.
