A Warm Welcome for Out-of-Town Guests

Whether you’re having a destination wedding or just have a few guests flying in from out of town, it’s nice to say “thank you for coming” with a personalized welcome gift to greet your tired travelers. We’ve put together some items that aren’t expensive and when you add a few extra personalized touches, it will make them feel right at home.

Choose a basket, bag or box depending on your wedding theme and decorate it in colors to match. Add a personalized welcome note on a hanging tag or postcard that you can customize at Avery Design & Print Online. Then fill your container with items that will make everyone’s stay more comfortable. You can include items like an itinerary for your guests’ visit so they know exactly where they need to be and when. Beverages, snacks, magazines and a map of local hot spots can be useful for everyone’s stay. For extra special touches, personalize a bottle of wine with a printable arched label, or water bottles with durable wraparound labels. Wrap up cookies, candy or other sweet treats with a customized label featuring your wedding design. You can even create a unique, personalized door hanger for their guestroom door when they need some peace and quiet after a long day of celebration.

Check out our list below for some more inspiration. Remember, you can easily create your own one-of-a-kind tags, labels and cards with our free software, designs and templates at Avery Design & Print Online, with no minimum order and no expensive printing fees. Let your imagination run wild, and make sure your wedding celebration is a trip they’ll never forget.
