of your wedding guests will most likely need to travel a bit to attend your
celebration. If this is the case, it is a hospitable gesture to welcome them and
thank them by placing a welcome basket in their hotel room (or personally
deliver it if you have time)!
contents of the basket are entirely up to you, but here are a few fun
personal note welcoming the guests to your town is a must! Be sure it is
bottled water and light snacks will be appreciated by tired travelers. Perhaps
choose foods that are unique to your local area!
you are a fabulous baker, feel free to include a few homemade cookies or
you wish, a bottle of local wine could be included!
and brochures from the surrounding area will help your guests to plan and enjoy
their free time! Feel free to attach hand written notes offering advice!
to a local event or activity (even if they are just complimentary passes) will
inspire your guests to explore the area a bit!
baskets do not have to be lavish and expensive! They are simply a way to let
your guests know that you greatly appreciate the time and effort it took them to
attend your wedding.
