Who doesn’t like to be pampered?
Well, even though the day of the wedding is all about the spouses, who says that the guests should not feel important and pampered as well?
Here’s a nice idea for your guests: the Welcome Bags!
A pretty bag of paper or cloth, personalized directly by the bridal couple, to welcome the guests, especially if they come from far away.
A trend born in the United States, but which has already spread widely throughout Europe.
But…what to put inside these bags?
1. Useful information
Especially for those coming from far away, it would be nice to have a map or a mini guide of the wedding venues. Some historical nods of the place you chose for the reception and suggestions on what to visit nearby if your guests decide to stay a few more days.
2. Wedding Kit
You could put inside your bag the program of the day; the book of Mass, if you choose the religious rite; the cockade for the car; a pack of personalized handkerchiefs and the bag with the rice to throw or the soap bubbles to blow.
3. Personalized accessories
Your photo with a billboard saying “Welcome” or “Thank you” can be a souvenir of the day and an early thank you to your guests.
A small personalized gadget with your names and date of marriage: a keychain, a mini-pen, a USB stick with a few photos of your pre-wedding service or a funny pin.
