We are very fond of "Welcome Boxes" for you out of town guests. It is a nice way to welcome them to your city and thank them for traveling from afar to celebrate in your day. For a recent June wedding we created these gorgeous boxes filled with wonderful items. These boxes were special to the bride and groom as over half of their guests were out of town guests with both the bride & grooms families traveling from Florida, California & New York. The boxes were filled with wonderful items such as a map of Chicago, Points of interest, Postcard from Chicago, Tissues for their tears of joy, Bottles of water with custom labels, Miniature bottle of champagne, Flutes & much more! The bride & groom also added a handwritten note to their guests that read:
"Thank You for joining us for our special day!
We hope you have a great time and
fall in love with the city that we fell in love in"
Love Mr & Mrs. Mouradian
Every aspect of this wedding well thought out and cohesive with the wedding itself. The wedding was held at ZED451 in Downtown Chicago and has a very earthy yet modern feel. The boxes were white with band of woodgrain paper and a pretty sating ribbon bow. It fit perfectly within the couples Modern meets Organic wedding!
Please remember you do not have to break the bank with your welcome boxes or bags!! Visit your local dollar store for boxes, bags, treats & more! You also do not have to add tons of goodies, just a welcome card, map & couple of bottles of water is just fine! Think about what you would like to receive and take the type of wedding into consideration as-well. If you are having a beach wedding add a pair of flip flops for the lady, sunscreen & water.
The possibilities are endless!!
