Show your wedding guests how much you appreciate their presence at your big day with the ultimate wedding welcome gift! By creating a beautiful gift with care and intention, you can give your guests a thoughtful experience that will always remind them of your special weekend.
Here are our essential elements to include in a unique wedding welcome gift.
6 Essential Elements of a Great Wedding Welcome Gift
Everyone appreciates snacks! Beverages such as water, craft sodas, and beer are always good to include. Sweet, salty, and savory snacks are wonderful additions as well - popcorn, crackers, and trail mix are all great ideas as they are easy for your guests to grab and go.
Even better, include family favorite recipes such as Gramma’s toffee cookies.
2. Dear to the Couple
Get creative! Share your love story and showcase your personality by integrating ingredients that mean something special to you. Include items such as chocolates from your favorite candy store in your hometown or chips from the town where you got engaged. We love designing His and Her kits, too!
One key part of creating the perfect wedding welcome gift is to give something your guests will use time and time again. Rather than printing your name and wedding date on your items, give gifts that won’t go out of style. Beach towels, koozies, cups, and candles are all gifts your guests will get to use over and over.
4. Welcome Note
Help your wedding guests have the best experience possible! Write a note to your guests telling them how thankful you are to have them there celebrating with you. Include an itinerary as well as any other relevant information your guests might need, such as a map of the area, a list of local attractions and things to do, shuttle schedules, etc.
Let your welcome gift reflect the location and style of your wedding! We love designing wedding branding for our couples. Use items that complement your color scheme to make your gift fit with your wedding branding. You can event have a custom monogram designed or pull in elements from your invitation design to give your gift a cohesive look.
Presentation is everything! Arrange your items in a custom tote bag, crate, or wire basket. Using containers that your guests can continue to use in the future can make your wedding welcome gift more functional and meaningful. If you feel your guests may have difficulty carrying the containers back home, opt for a quality paper box so guests won’t be heartbroken if they need to leave it behind.
