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.

A Few of Your Favorite Things

Add a personal touch to your bag by including items you love or things that speak to you two as a couple. Maybe it's a signature sweet, a book of crossword puzzles or a mix of your favorite beats. These details that capture your quirks make fun welcome bag additions your guests will surely love (or at least get a good laugh out of).
Get Creative: Give your guests a little context by personalizing each item with a note explaining its significance -- for example, John used to do the crossword puzzle every Sunday morning with his grandfather, or Emily is infamous for keeping a stash of sweets in her purse.
