Cheshire wedding venue welcome package ideas

Your wedding is about you and your big day. However, making sure your wedding guests feel welcome and have a great time is a big factor and worry for most couples.

One way to help do this that has become very popular recently, is to give your wedding guests a welcome package. If done right, this is a great way to make your guests feel special and a part of your big day.

Presentation is key with this idea and a canvas tote bag is not only a great way to hold the items you plan to give, but it can also be used for years afterwards for shopping or the gym. Here, the important thing to remember is if you decide to have a custom-made design, steer clear of names or monograms. If you want to personalise the bag, choose a motif that’s in line with your wedding style. You want to design something your guests will use after the wedding.

Once you’ve decided on your bag and design, you’ll need to decide what to put inside. There are so many things you could choose as a welcome gift – food, candles, alcohol, bespoke jewellery, toiletries or even items they can use during your wedding.

Choose romantic wedding gift items that say something about you and your partner.

  • Local ingredients – get creative with local snacks that are representative of your wedding setting. The Dunham Forest catering team can provide excellent cakes and treats all made using local ingredients that would add that personal touch to your gift.
  • Something to drink – whether this is alcoholic or not, add in a bottle with a custom label to show off your wedding colour, motif or monogram.
  • Toiletries – provide a few items that may be useful at your wedding such as makeup or body spray if you know your guests will be doing a lot of dancing!
  • A few of your favourite things – add a personal touch to your bag by including items you love or things that speak about you as a couple. Add in a personalised note explaining the item’s significance.

Whatever you decide upon, one thing’s for sure – our Wedding team would be more than happy to see how we can help to welcome your guests and ensure they feel part of your big day.
