Wedding Welcome Bags Your Guests Will Love

Whether you’re having a destination wedding or are looking to give out-of-town wedding guests a super lovely welcome, wedding welcome bags and baskets are a gorgeous touch and are really appreciated by those who have made the journey to celebrate with you! They’re especially popular here in the UAE with couples who have moved form elsewhere and now call the UAE home. With lots of guests travelling from far and wide to be with them on the Big Day, it’s a lovely gesture that will show family and friends just how happy you are that they’re there! You can pack your wedding welcome packs with as little or as much as you like – if you want to keep them low-key and cute, essentials like water, some snacks, a map and all your wedding day info (so they know exactly what’s happening and where to go) will do perfectly or if you’re looking to go all out and really treat your guests, there are lots of amazing tokens you can include. Check out some inspo and ideas below…

Things You Can Include

  • Your favourite treats (sweet or salty – they’ll be happy to nibble on goodies when they arrive)
  • Bottled water (add personalised labels for a super cute touch!)
  • Tea/coffee sachets
  • Map of area/venue
  • Wedding day timeline
  • Guide to the City/Things to Do
  • A personalised tote they can use over the weekend
  • Essentials like insect repellent, sun cream, sunglasses, fans if you’re having an outdoor wedding
  • Confetti (if you’d like that iconic shot on your Big Day!)
  • Fresh flowers
  • A personalised welcome note
  • A souvenir from the area
  • A postcard and stamp so they can can remember their stay
  • Little extras to ensure they’re comfortable like an eye mask, lotions, soap or a candle
  • Disposable camera
