“Every wedding gift bag is a little different and should reflect your personal taste.”
Whether you are planning a destination wedding or are having it close to home, there are always going to be guests that are traveling to be with you on your special day. Obviously, your guests are going to be more than happy to make the journey to celebrate with you, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do something nice for them to make their stay more enjoyable. Though most of your guests will bring along everything they need, it’s always nice to give them a wedding gift bag to make sure they have everything they need for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
To determine what to put in your gift bags for your wedding, you first need to think about where your wedding is going to be held. If you’re having a beach wedding, for instance, then you probably want to consider adding a few useful items such as sunscreen, sunglasses, and a beach blanket so that your guests can get the most out of the experience. Worst case scenario, if your guests already planned ahead and packed the items they need, they can always be brought home to be used at a future date.
Additionally, you should consider adding a few items that your guests normally won’t think to bring along to give them a better experience. You could give your guests some luxury bath salts or bubble bath so they can indulge in a great bathing experience before your big wedding day. You could supply them with some bars of cold process soap so they can enjoy their benefits in their hotel shower as well as at home. Just think of something nice and luxurious to make their time a little better and all of your guests will enjoy the day better.
Lastly, you can never go wrong with adding in a few items that will enhance your wedding celebration. Your gift bags don’t only need to contain items for your guests to use leading up to your wedding day, you can also add a few wedding favors to use at the reception itself. Consider throwing in a few 36 inch wedding sparklers that your guests can light when you arrive at your reception venue. Or perhaps you want to give out disposable cameras to your guests; your gift bags are an excellent opportunity to do that.
So, in essence, putting together great wedding gift bags is the perfect combination of thinking about your guest’s needs and giving them a special luxurious experience on top. Every wedding gift bag is a little different and should reflect your personal taste, but you should always remember to focus on the needs of the guests. With some thoughtfulness and careful preparation, it is pretty simple to figure out what to put in your gift bags for your wedding.
