Custom Totes + Wedding Boxes
Before we get to all the goodies, you’ll need to first decide what’s going to contain them all. There are a couple different routes to go here, but here are two of our favorites:
Custom Totes: Provide your guests with a functional and stylish tote that they can use throughout the weekend and even after they return home. Personalize it with your wedding logo, date, or a meaningful design that represents your special day.
Welcome Boxes: If you want a more gift-like feel, consider using welcome boxes. These can be customized to match your wedding theme and overall vibe. Fill them with treats, mementos, or small gifts that will make your guests feel extra special and appreciated.
When it comes to creating welcome packages, the design of your box or tote is crucial. It's important to select colors, elements, and themes that align with the overall look and feel of your wedding. Our team is here to offer guidance and provide valuable insights as you craft your perfect welcome packages. Let us help you ensure that every detail of your welcome packages is in harmony with your wedding vision for a cohesive and unforgettable guest experience.
Including the wedding weekend itinerary in your welcome package is a great way to give your guests a sneak peek of the upcoming celebration and get them excited about what's to come. It's also important to ensure that the printed version of your itinerary matches the overall vibe of your wedding, as consistency is key in creating a cohesive experience for your guests!
One of our favorite ways to fill wedding packages is by incorporating local flavors, gourmet treats, and knickknacks. Explore nearby businesses and hometown favorites that represent the local culture of your wedding venue or your home. Choose items that you love to shop or eat and include them in your welcome packages as delightful surprises for your guests. By adding the local touch to your packages your guests will feel even more at home, relaxed, and ready to celebrate your big day.
Hangover kits can be a lifesaver after a night of celebration. If you're not familiar with them, hangover kits typically include items designed to help alleviate the effects of a hangover. From pain relievers like Tylenol and vitamin supplements like Emergen-C, to face wipes, granola bars, and gum, these kits can contain a wide variety of items. When choosing a hangover kit for your welcome package, be sure to shop around and find one that you think your guests will appreciate. You can even customize the container of the kit to match your wedding visuals, adding a personalized touch to the package. Your guests will thank you in the morning for this thoughtful and practical inclusion.
Small Wedding Memorabilia
Add a touch of fun and nostalgia to your wedding packages with memorable tokens of your wedding day or weekend. Think coasters, polaroid pictures, disposable cameras, or small keepsakes for your guests to hold onto. These thoughtful items allow you to infuse a bit more of your personality into the welcome packages and connect with your guests on a more intimate level. Let’s face it…when everyone feels welcomed and excited, things just feel better.
Quality vs Quantity
When it comes to creating your welcome package, it's important to be mindful of not overfilling it with items that may not resonate with your guests. Instead, focus on being thoughtful and intentional with the items you choose so that you can communicate just how grateful you are that they are there with you. Quality over quantity is key here. Too many items can feel overwhelming and may distract from important items, like the itinerary.
Consider seeking design support from a third party to elevate your welcome package and create custom gifts that truly impress. A professional touch can really take your welcome packages to the next level, ensuring that they align with your wedding theme and vision.
