As the days are counting down to the wedding I start thinking about all of the little details. This week I started focusing on the “out-of-towner” welcome bags to give our guests upon arrival to their hotel. I have been searching online to find out what exactly I should be putting in these bags and this is what I came up with. I am in love with the way Navy and Lavender and pulled some ideas from them; here is what I have come up with so far. 1. First, I had to find something to put all of the goodies in. I had Laura Hooper create a tote bag for my guests that they would be able to keep and remember our day by.
2. Include information on the wedding itself and all of the events surrounding it. Wes and I are going to create some information and get it printed up of all of the top things to do in the Santa Barbra area: eat, drink and play. As well as what time the welcome dinner and brunch are. 3. Make sure there is magic for the morning. I will be including Advil or Tylenol of some sort to help my guests that may have consumed too much alcohol.
4. Hydration. I will be sure to put water in the bag as well as a wine from our favorite vineyard up in that region.5. Something to nibble on. I will be adding my and Wes’s favorite candies to the bags as well as some chips and protein bars.I am sure I will stuff more things in these bags, but that is at least a start in the right direction. Still to do: order vintage stamps for invitations, mail invitations, order chair rentals for the ceremony, and book hotels for the honeymoon. Oh how things add up.Always with Love, Aly
