It’s long been de rigueur to have welcome bags waiting for out-of-town wedding guests when they arrive at their hotels. They’re a thoughtful way to show appreciation for loved ones who have traveled to attend your nuptials, particularly if you’re hosting a destination wedding that requires a significant investment of time and money to attend. However, the typical contents of welcome bags – schedules of events, destination guides, and a selection of local delicacies – have become rather predictable.
We invite you to think outside the bag and consider some great alternatives that will communicate your thanks as well as your warmest welcome to loved ones.
