Our Favorite Wedding Welcome Bag Ideas

Chances are, you won't be able to greet all your guests upon their arrival, so a wedding welcome bag (or basket) of goodies is a great way to say, "Hello, we're glad you're here!" right away. (This is especially true if you're having a destination wedding or hosting lots of out-of-towners.) That's why many couples put together welcome bags for their guests. Want to do the same? Here's everything you need to assemble the perfect prewedding goody bag that's sure to make your guests feel right at home.

Local Ingredients

The whole idea behind the welcome bag is to make your guests' stay more comfortable. Keep them from raiding the minibar! Fill their bags with sweet and savory snacks that will tide them over if they arrive after dinner or if they have a late-night hankering post wedding dance party.
Get Creative: Give out-of-towners a taste of local flavor with snacks that are representative of the setting. For example, locally grown Florida oranges, Cape Cod potato chips or Vermont cheddar cheese.
