Do You Include Snacks in a Wedding Welcome Gift?

Absolutely! Food and drink is truly the definition of a must-have for your wedding welcome box. Everyone loves to be given a little treat to snack on once they arrive in a new place. This is especially true for those coming from out of town to your wedding. Specialized foods or drinks, such as chocolates or wine, are the perfect addition to your box. It’s even better if you’re able to incorporate a little bit of yourself or your location to the mix. If your wedding is in New York City, add some bagels from your favorite bagel shop for that extra special touch.

Why Personalizing Your Wedding Gifts is Important

Personalized pieces in your gifts are what makes your guests feel welcome and speaks to your event. Rather than throwing in map of your city, why not make your own sight-seeing tour? Have a personalized map that highlights yours and your partner’s favorite spots. This not only shows your personality in your welcome box, it gives your guests pre-wedding activities they can do while they’re in town.

Wedding Welcome Box and Gift

How to make your guests comfortable at a wedding?

So far, you’ve included a tasty treat and something personal for your guests to enjoy during their stay for your wedding. Now is the time to introduce a small gift, such as bath salts, candles, or perhaps a beautiful throw to stay warm while they are visiting and to take home when they leave. This is the category that goes beyond the wedding. By giving a small memento, your guests will remember your day for a long time to come.

When you have these three components in your Wedding Welcome Box, you ensure that your guests will have a fantastic time and feel appreciated.
