Weddings are often filled with out of town guests who have to stay near the venue in order to safely celebrate your big day with you! Consider welcoming guests to the hotel with a welcome bag full of goodies! Place your hotel welcome bag at the front desk and have the receptionist pass them out upon check in. Find some ideas on what to include in your welcome bag and how to get any instructions read prior to your big day!

While hotel welcome bags are not a required element for your big day, it’s always a nice treat to have for your guests for all the prep time getting ready to attend a long night.
There’s a large range of goodies you can include in hotel welcome bags:
- Granola Bars
- Mints / Gum
- Individual Aspirin Packets
(Hotel bag from Vanessa’s modern vintage wedding)
But you might want to also consider some other fun inclusions:
- Personalized Goodies ( like the Rice Kripsies treats with the write on wrapper where my friend Vanessa included their initials and the wedding date)
- Baked Goos
- Pamphlets for local activities
- Custom door hangers (ones we’ve received had phrases like “Recovering from Frank and Lauren’s big day!”
My biggest tip: attach any day of information on the FRONT of the bags! This way people will read them on the way up to the room or once inside.
