Weddings, as we all know, are a celebration of love. A couple stands before their guests sharing a piece of themselves in front of ones they love. It is also a way to gather together the people you love for a fun day of excitement that everyone can cherish.
Being a bride, though, can be overwhelming. The timeline alone makes every little decision feel like it’s the most important one you’ll need to make. This includes all the gifts you will be buying throughout the wedding planning process. You have so many people to thank that it seems impossible to get everything right. While the focus is on the soon-to-be newlyweds, friends and family travel near and far to witness the festivity. If you are planning a wedding, there is no better way to show your appreciation for your loved ones than a Wedding Welcome Box.
In this series, Bestowe is going to share all the ins and outs of gifting during your wedding season. Who should you buy for? What types of gifts do you need for a mother-in-law, or the ring bearer? What does a good wedding box entail? By having a timeline and a handful of ideas before you start, you are guaranteed to have a seamless planning experience.
What is a Wedding Welcome Box?
Simply put, it is a gift package that you give to your guests when they arrive in town for your wedding, usually placed in their hotel rooms prior to arrival. The concept of showing your gratitude through this gift is not new, however, you will want to make sure that your Wedding Welcome Box has everything your guests could need to share in the experience of your Big Day!
Here are the Top 3 Reasons you should have a wedding welcome box
To Show Your Appreciation
Many guests, even if you are having a local wedding, will be traveling to join you on your day. While your loved ones are coming to support and celebrate you, a welcome box is a great way to say “We’re really happy you came” before the festivities begin.
Introductions to Your City
If you have out-of-town guests, chances are they may not know the best local bakery or some nice sightseeing excursions or what makes this destination unique and special to you and your soon-to-be bride or groom. Giving the highlights of your town to your guests will ensure that they have a fabulous time throughout their stay.
Insight into Your Relationship
Remember, there will be people who might only know one of you. A Wedding Welcome Box is a fantastic way to show your personality as a couple. Do you and your partner play laser tag or like to bake? You can include fun, personalized information about your relationship so your guests have an idea of how you enjoy spending your time.
No matter how you decide to fill your box, it’s your chance to thank your guests for celebrating this exciting beginning with you.
