For Your Guests Who Have Traveled Far
Welcome gifts started particularly for those guests who are coming from out of town or to a destination wedding as a special thank you for all the travel and sacrifice they made to get there. This is especially relevant for a destination wedding since most all of your guests have to travel far to make it. But some may have to travel across multiple countries or continents to make it there. This gift set is for them - to show how much you appreciate them making the trip and to help them unwind once they get there! Let the feel of the milk bath soothe their skin, restore moisture, and leave their body feeling silky. Tien Giang Chocolate is a signature bar of 9th & Larkin. It’s made from cacao beans with notes of brown sugar, nuts, cinnamon, and hints of figs and persimmon. Also, consider pairing it with a memento from you as a couple, a custom activity guide for the town you are in, or your favorite snacks from the area.
Another option, if you’re looking for something extra special, are custom welcome gifts! We offer this service for couples who want to choose specific local artisan gifts for their welcome boxes and create a truly custom experience. Learn more about this option here.
For After the Party
After all the walking, dancing, and late nights, your guests will love utilizing this unique welcome gift to recover! This set includes everything they need to revitalize their body and spirit with Ajna tea, a rose and salt bath soak, and a decadent single-origin dark chocolate bar. Consider including a gift card in each one for a complimentary breakfast at your hotel or resort as well as part of their post-wedding recovery!
For Your Right Hand
This wedding would not have been possible without your right hand. Whether it was your mom, future MIL, maid of honor or wedding planner, give them a unique gift to say thank you for everything they did to make your perfect day a reality. Give them a gift for pampering with candle collections handcrafted with 100% GMO soy wax and lead-free wicks using a blend of essential oils, a floral-scented soap from Sade Baron, and a silk eye mask to block out the light and protect the eyes.
A destination wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Make it even more memorable for your guests with these luxurious and unique welcome gifts or our custom gifting option, that would make anyone glad they came.
