Build a Stellar Wedding Welcome Bag

by

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!

Who wouldn’t feel welcomed with this gorgeous and dynamic wedding welcome gable box?

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!

Gathered wedding welcome bag items

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!!!

To make your party even more memorable, customize your desserts with personalized labels! Whether you choose to mark your candies with your graduating year or the name of your school, your guests will love the added personal touch.

Yearbook Party

Some schools still do the “most likely” awards in their yearbooks, but if your class didn’t get to partake, why not recreate a yearbook party theme? Place props around the house or venue and set up photo booths with polaroid cameras. Create signs for:

  • Most likely to become famous
  • Most likely to succeed
  • Most likely to win The Voice
  • Most likely to win an Oscar
  • Most athletic
  • Most likely to invent something
  • And more!

Good Luck

Graduating can be an exciting time but also a scary one. You and your classmates may be looking for some good luck wishes whether it’s for getting into their preferred college or landing their dream job. Host a “good luck” party with decor items that instill feelings of hope like rainbows, a pot of gold, horseshoes, shamrocks, and Lucky Charms cereal!

Looking for a low key graduation party theme? Gather your best classmates and host a movie and popcorn night. Hand out custom popcorn bags and watch graduation/prom-focused movies like The Graduate, Superbad, and Dazed and Confused.

Then & Now

Have your classmates changed their look since you first met? Host a then & now party and have everyone wear an outfit they would have worn 10 years ago. Gather up as many childhood pics of your friends and play guessing games to see who can be identified!

Wine & Cheese

Maybe your classmates are a little more lowkey. Buy a variety of wines and put custom labels on them so no one knows the brand. Have your guests try and guess which types of wines they’re tasting. And don’t forget to pair them with cheese!

A Guide to Nailing Your Wedding Wine Label Design

Screen Shot 2016-09-06 at 1.46.19 PM

Choosing the right gifts for your wedding guests is essential for creating lasting memories of your special day. A wedding wine is an ideal way to remind your family and friends years later of the fantastic time they had at your wedding! A generic bottle with its original label is a nice gesture — but a personalized bottle with a custom label makes the gift a thoughtful, special, and meaningful memento.

Custom wine bottles are not just unique and creative gifts; they are cost-effective, too. You’ll save money by ordering just the wine labels for your bottles than specially labeled bottles direct from a winery. It is significantly less expensive to ship wine labels, too, than it is to purchase and ship custom labeled wine bottles. Buy the bottles separately at a local retailer and label yourself for more control, creativity, and savings.

So, where do you even start when choosing and designing your wedding wine label? We’re here to help!

by

Sometimes, relationships end really poorly. Sometimes, the only remedy is – wine (and lots of it). If you got dumped, or one of your girlfriends got dumped, it might be time to pop the cork and dish out some good-old fashioned ‘happy’ juice (yes – alcohol…). Few things are more important than showing your friend you care and displaying your solidarity when the going gets tough. Because we believe in the power of friendship and good spirits, here are some ideas for creating a Men Suck, Drink Wine Party to remember…  (p.s: we suggest setting this ground rule – no drunk dialing)…
