Putting together a stellar Wedding Welcome bag can be trickier than it seems. Between finding the right tote and trying to select the goodies, it can cause unexpected stress in wedding planning. Trying to do it yourself and pull it all off on your own is even more stressful. Luckily, a few custom labels can take the hassle and guess work out of coordinating the items in your bag.
A basic box is a great start and holds a ton of items. Kraft and black paper make for a simple color scheme that is easy to coordinate. These water bottle labels are waterproof and self adhesive, so they couldn’t be easier to use! Small plastic bags are cheap and perfect for treats, plus they are easy to find at your local craft store. Add scrapbooking paper and a favor label, like this one, and your guests will have a handsome snack. Every good welcome basket has mints and booze, so don’t forget the mini wine labels and candy kiss labels. With coordinating labels, the effort is minimal and the impact is massive! Don’t forget the favor label on the top of the box to tie it all together!
Here, custom labels are the hero again, pulling all the items together for a coordinated container. Use this label, typically used on a wine bottle, with a length of black and white ribbon on the front to create a dynamic looking gable box. Dress up a basic water bottle with these custom labels. Mini liquor bottles and soda mixer get a makeover with custom liquor and favor labels. Tried and true spice labels designate hand wipes as “fresh and clean” and snacks as “favorites” to add a dose of personality. Literally tied together with black and white yarn this attractive welcome bag is a cinch to create. As for convenience, you can order your labels, gable boxes and treat bags all in one place…wedding bag: complete!

Lastly, is this stunning and modern wedding welcome tote. Perfect for a swanky affair, this colorful label will let your guests know they are in for a great event. Here, this wine label works overtime as both a bottle label and is used again as a door hanger. To create a hanger like this for your bag, simply add a wine label to a length of sturdy card stock. Next, use a 2.25″ round hole punch (like this one) at the top and you’re done! We also switched up the use of this mini wine label to go on a cute square hang tag. Snacks and the ever-important Tide pen are given descriptive spice labels. Finally, the quintessential wedding welcome water bottle is beautified with these custom labels.
Encourage your guests to have a great time by including a mini hangover kit as well. You know, hangovers last a lifetime, but memories last forever! We made a fun kit here by including a little something for hydration, a little something for the head and a little hair of the dog.
Now that you’ve gathered your items and decided what you want to go into your bag, you’ve got to decide how to get it in the hands of your guests. In the past, it was common to have the bags waiting for your guests at check-in. Another alternative is to assemble your items, display them in a pretty way, and let your guests pick and choose what they’d like. What may be work for you can turn into fun for your guests!
Wedding welcome bags are a quintessential way for you and your new Mr. or Mrs. to really show your personalities. Don’t be afraid to be fun, playful or a bit tongue-in-cheek. After all, this is just the start of your amazing festivities… ENJOY IT!!!
