A very important wedding detail you may have missed!

It’s almost here!!!
Your wedding is just around the corner, exciting! But you have probably forgotten one detail that may make a huge positive impact on your overnight guests…. wedding gift bags!

Whether you are having a destination wedding or inviting guests to come to you from out of town, placing gift bags in your overnight guest’s hotel rooms upon their arrival is a wonderful way to greet your guests! It is a small token to say how much it means to you that they have come all this way to share your special day.

These amazing jute (burlap/ hessian) bags from Destination Jute are made just for you, totally personalised in your wedding colours, names and even your wedding location! A very special and heart-warming keepsake that are well within your last-minute budget!

Some ideas on what to put in your guest welcome bags are:
– A schedule of wedding events (so they know where to be and when)
– Bottled water
– Fresh fruit
– Natural cereal bars
– Love sweets
– Mini bottles of wine or champagne
– Pain killers for the morning after
– Or whatever you think will make them smile, have fun with it!

For your extra special guests (like your new mother-in-law) you can place a hand-tied bouquet of flowers or a flowering potted plant like a lucky Narcissus (angel flower plant) into these custom made bags to add some freshness to their home for the night.

If you have overlooked this detail, you have to act now, as these are all hand painted with custom stencils made just for you. There is still time, but you must be quick!

Remember… its all in the details!

Best of luck,
