Q: What should I think about when planning my wedding welcome gifts for guests?
Theme: Finalize your thoughts and ideas about the theme of your wedding welcome bags.
Whether you are having a destination wedding in Mexico or a wedding in your neighbor's cozy and intimate barn, your wedding theme should extend to your gifts. We have seen many occasions where a beautiful and well-planned wedding misses the mark by giving “cheap” feeling wedding welcome gifts that don’t really fit in with the overall aesthetic of your wedding. We have even seen situations where the colors of the items provided arrive in a strange variety of colors that don’t fit the vision that the happy couple has so meticulously planned.
Some of the most popular themes we have seen in our years of creating custom wedding welcome gifts include general themes such as beach, destination weddings, Urban/city, or rustic wedding gift boxes. We have seen even more unique general themes such as a specific floral or even a Harry Potter wedding. At this point in planning you most likely have settled on a general theme, color, or guideline to begin planning your wedding welcome bags.
When thinking about what items you will be including in your wedding welcome bags, you need to think about how those items will be useful to your guests. We have all attended weddings where you have received a wedding favor that later just ends up in the trash as it simply takes up space. Finding items that are useful is key to creating the perfect wedding gift box that fits your theme.
Budget: Figure out what a realistic budget is for your custom wedding welcome gifts
We all look at those beautiful Pinterest-worthy weddings and wonder to ourselves, “How much did that cost”. We want your wedding to be as beautiful and unique as your relationship and to build the perfect wedding gifts that you will be proud to share with friends and family. In general, our wedding welcome gifts range from $55-$75 a gift including shipping. We can work with a lower budget and have often worked with a much higher luxurious budget, though most often our services fit into that range.
