Since we are putting out our tip clip on what you should include in your wedding welcome guest bags, we thought today would be a perfect day to share some different versions of some of our recent favorites. For our Newport, RI wedding the floral and fauna pattern that Lettered Olive designed to use throughout the wedding printing, was embroidered onto a travel laundry bag (for us it’s a bonus if we can find a clever reuseable container). Waters and snacks are a good standard for guests traveling, it’s always nice to have a few goodies lying around.

This wedding was all about a big party and the couple’s favorite things, so of course, the guest bags were a great way to do this as well.  We had two small bags with “his” favorite things and “her” favorite things. Also a Retox/Detox kit including asprin, tums, emergen-C, band aids, etc. Also, it’s beyond important you include all of the important information- a timeline of the weekend events, transportation schedule, and important contact information.

Of course, since the welcome bag one of the first things your guests get to enjoy on your wedding weekend, it can be a fun way to incorporate special details that don’t necessarily fit into the wedding itself… Our bride really loved these sweet “LOVE” chocolates, and this was a great way to share them with all of the guests.

Charleston Collage

Today, we’re going to help you with ideas for the perfect wedding welcome favors based on the type/location of your big day.  Of course with Charleston being our backyard, we try to find ways to switch it up a bit, but still representing both the city location and the clients marrying here.  For a formal destination wedding downtown, bags custom printed with the couple’s printing motif are filled with upscale goodies like champagne splits, custom Candlefish scented candles, and favorite treats of the bride and groom.  Another Charleston wedding features canvas totes printed with an illustrated map of the weekend locales, locally made cheese wafers and local chocolate. Of course, providing guests with all of the pertinent information- transportation schedule, addresses of event locations, and things to do in the surrounding areas are all necessities.

Since we do do a lot of destination weddings, we like creating fun and new ways to customize the favors that greet guests upon arrival, perhaps to a location they have never been before. For this Colorado weekend, leather trimmed totes were filled with thoughtful details like wood grain S’well bottles (tote along on your hikes), “trail” mix, and kit full of sunscreen, mini O2 bottles to battle any elevation issues, and fly fishing embroidered caps.

Beach Collage

For a Southern beach wedding, jute beach bags are stocked with printed koozies, ER kits (bandaids, tums, aspirin, sunscreen, and chapstick), lots of beach worthy snacks and magazines for guests to enjoy while soaking up the sun, and printed water bottles.  Other items to include are printed beach towels, flip flips, and printed toss away sunglasses.

For this intimate destination wedding at the Montage Palmetto Bluff, the venue provided home made biscuits and locally made jam, which Lettered Olive created custom packaging for and delivered to each guest cottage the morning of the big day… Talk about leaving a lasting impression!
