The latest wedding day must-have? Welcome totes to greet your guests and add that extra personal touch. Whether it’s a destination wedding or local fair, hospitality kits with beyond-the-mini-bar amenities and a helpful schedule for the weekend’s events have become more than just a nice gesture.1.THE TOTE
When choosing what you put your welcome kit in, consider the many options available:
While the snacks are the most exciting part of the welcome tote bag, do not overlook the paperwork. Help guests have what they need to know at their fingertips with an itinerary that details locations, addresses, times and dress codes for the events of your weekend (rehearsal dinner, ladies’ luncheon, pre-wedding photo sessions, after-party details, and post-wedding brunch, for example).
Bottled water in hotel rooms can often add up to big bucks for your guests. Take the opportunity to offer up thirst-quenchers that also add some style. THE LIBATION
Drinks—alcoholic and non-alcoholic—are a nice way to set a celebratory tone for your affair! “SOMETHING SWEET”
Every wedding welcome tote should include something to satisfy your guests’ sweet-tooth!
For late nights after the after-party, something salty is always much appreciated by your guests. While nut mixes are always popular, they can also create issues with nut allergies so consider some of these other salty snacks! Potato chips are always a hit—and come in more gourmet flavors than ever before. Torres Premium Potato Chips come in a variety of exotic flavors from Black Truffle to Caviar to Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Mediterranean Herb.SOMETHING HANDMADE
If you want to take up the luxury of your welcome tote, consider including something spa-inspired to amp up the comforts of your guest’s room such as handmade soap.9. HANGOVER RELIEF
Yes, it’s a wedding and there will be hangovers. Pain relief tablets and solutions are always appreciated! Pop in a couple of Advil packets and a tin of Altoids into a cute “hangover kit” mini-satchel for the morning after.
