Wedding Welcome Gift Bags and Gift Bag Ideas

Once brides have decided on their wedding favor gift to their guests, the next decision would be how to display the gift on their wedding table. Brides may have decided they wish the venue hosts to place the presents on the tables as a decoration before the guests are seated for their meals.

Having different favors for men and women can be a good way to go if you can't decide on something that is universal for both sexes. For women, you can use things such as special beauty product samples, small bottles of nail polish, or even nice lotion.

Item weight. Let's face it - you will be traveling not only with all your normal vacation items, but also with all your bridal items as well. Carrying another 30 plus pounds is not something you, your groom, or your attendants want to do.

Different couples choose to do different things with their wedding gifts bags. A gift bag can be filled with bottled water, snacks for the room, and brochures with things to do in and around town for those who may not be familiar with the area. This is especially helpful for traveling guests who - in between wedding activities - may want to explore a city/town they have never before visited.

Create goody bags based on homemade products, and to make them even better make the contents yourself. These could include homemade preserves or chutneys, mini cakes or cookies, chocolates, soaps, scented sachets, candles, note cards, and even homemade wine, cider or beer! Give your guests a taste of something local, especially if a large percentage of them are out of town.

Make up goody bags with favors such as pear scented soaps, a leaf shaped bottle stopper, fall themed cookie cutter and photograph coaster set. You could also include edibles like apple and cinnamon cookies or pumpkin cake.

The best place to shop for these bags is online. This is considered by many as an ideal international shopping experience to find the perfect gift bag for the perfect wedding. With so many websites available all over the world representing many cultures, the variety of choices is staggering in design, prices and types of wedding bags - with or without handles, kraft, frosted poly cub and personalized bags for sale.

You will probably want to assemble your guest welcome bags and box them up before you leave for your 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 so you can purchase local goodies to add to your bags.
