More couples are getting married outside of their hometown, state or even their own country. Here are a few tips on how to make your destination wedding guests' stay a pleasant one with destination wedding favors and guest gifts.
A destination wedding is a wedding ceremony or celebration typically outside of the couples' state of residence. The most popular destination wedding locations are:
U.S. Virgin Islands
Many couples travel to areas within the united states that offer beautiful scenery for the purpose of ambiance or to a destination where they may have first met. With destination weddings becoming more popular, another item added to a bride's agenda may be the task of ensuring their out-of-town guests are provided with all the comfort items necessary to make their overnight stay a pleasant one.
One way to make your guests' stay enjoyable and memorable is to have a wedding guest thank you gifts or comfort items neatly packaged in personalized wedding gift bags
, displayed on the vanity or night stand of each hotel room, welcoming them to your city and your wedding weekend.
Fill each custom printed gift bag with bottled water and snacks or homemade treats. Maybe you want to add a little romance to your guests' wedding weekend. Try a scented candle, a small bottle of champagne with a couple of glasses and some fresh strawberries or other non-perishable fruit or snack. Use your imagination and be creative.
Assemble you guest welcome bags and box them up before leaving for your wedding destination. This will make it easy to transport and deliver to your hotel. In some cases, you may want to wait until you have arrived at your wedding location to assemble your gift bags. You may want to add items found locally or, as is the case with fresh food favors, it is always best to add to your welcome gifts no more than 24 hours before your guests arrive.
Once you have created your guest welcome bags, your hotel management will be happy to place a bag in each of your guests' hotel rooms prior to their arrival. Your wedding guests will be delighted to find such a treasure when they check in to their hotel rooms and nothing will make them feel more at home and appreciated than a personal message from the bride and groom.
