Welcome Bags for Wedding Guests?

We are having our wedding this coming March. We will have a lot of out of town guests and some local friends and family staying at a hotel close to our wedding location. We are looking for some interesting ideas for items to put into their welcome bags. Please help.

Local map, state map, church information (if they are staying over a weekend), info regarding local attractions, list of all numbers and where everyone else is staying, info about local parks and pool (if the hotel doesn't have one), maybe a sheet with photos of the bridal party and a brief story of how everyone met, list of barber and beauty shops, perhaps a bag of home made cookies.

My neice is getting married in May and she found some good ides at Michaels. They have some mini cameras that she is going to give all her guest so they can take pictures and Michaels has them in bags of 5 cameras per bag, they even have projects you can make as favors.


I was looking through their wedding favors and they have a lot of great gifts for your guest to take home that will give them a lot of wonderful memories from you wedding. Check them out at www.michaels.com. If they do not have one your area it will still give you some good ideas of what you can do.

Michaels also has a lot of decorations for weddings also.
I hope this helps and that you have a wonderful Wedding with many years of a happy marriage.
If you do not have a Michaels in your area check your local Arts & Crafts store.

In their 'welcome' bag, our friends included water bottles, a granola bar/snack, mints, pen, pad of paper. We loved it & it all came in handy!

You could check out the local Chamber of Commerce. They often have visitors guides and local discount information to include. You can get this stuff free and it helps them get around.


I think a couple bottles of water, map, area guide, wedding schedule, crackers, mints, chips or candy that you can buy in bulk at the warehouse store and then split up pretty cheaply.
