Welcome Your Guests in Soirée Style!

It’s Wedding Wednesday at The Bon Bon and today, we’re focusing on your out-of-town guests.  Here at Soirée, we love putting together guest bags and beautiful boxes filled with lots of goodies for our couple’s out-of-town guests.  What better way to welcome them in to town and truly set the scene for what’s about to come.

Some of the items that we love to use are personalized bottles of water, signature cookies, visitor’s booklets, pecans, and golf balls, just to name a few.  The key thing to remember, is to make it personal and to make it fun.  Once your guests get back home, you want to ensure that they never forget the wonderful weekend they spent celebrating your big day!

Here are a few beautiful “goodie” bags and boxes we put together for our client’s wedding guests!

A key factor to consider when having the guest bags monogrammed, instead of using the bride and groom’s names and wedding date, consider the longevity of the bag.  Will your college roommate want to carry around a bag with your initials on it?  Instead, consider using the logo of the reception venue; something subtle enough to encourage your guests to reuse the bag.

    Hi Ali and Tiffany,

    Our top load cards as well as the welcome cards themselves are all done custom by our sister company, The Lettered Olive. You can contact them directly to create something custom for yourself or choose a design out of one of their collections!

    Wonderful inspirations. Thanks!

  12. Looking for welcome kit for guests at a wedding. Kit has to include things like sun tan lotion, aspirin, condoms, tampax etc. Any other cute things you could recommend would be great. Can you do something like this?

    Hi, so sorry for the late reply… We do offer guest welcome kits to our clients… It’s not something we do retail as of yet. Thank you for checking. Best of luck!
