One of my favorite projects while preparing for our wedding weekend was our OOT bags. It was done on a tight budget and it really made people feel welcome. The Italian side if me feels the need to care for and feed others. The idea of people coming all the way to Burlington, VT and arriving hungry killed me. I put together bags to welcome our guests when they arrived at their hotel and so many of our loved ones approached me later to say how welcome they felt, and how glad they were for the snacks! Many took them on the road with them when they left. It was a small touch (less than $2.50 per bag) that went a long way. How are you making your guests feel welcome?
When you host a “destination” wedding, all of your guests are from out of town, so it’s really nice to make them feel welcome. And packing welcome bags is almost as much fun as Halloween candy or holiday gift bags.
Mr. Onion and I went to visit our parents this weekend (both of them live within 10 minutes of each other which is great) and we got a lot done. The bags were purchased at Papermart.com and were reasonably priced at $.40 each. I chose these bags because of their color, size and the quantity. You could purchase these bags in sets of 25 ”” you didn’t have to buy 200+. We also packed all 30 of our welcome bags for our guests. I’m really happy with how they turned out.
