Destination DIY: How to Build the Ultimate Wedding Welcome Bag

A guest blog by our friends at Weddingstar, designer of wedding accessories

Preparing for your destination wedding is an amazing journey. You make your to-do list, double check your packing and have all your wants and needs looked after with the help of your wedding coordinator. But what about your guests? Of course they’re excited to share in your big day, but it can be nice to have the peace of mind that everything they could want will be at their finger tips too! So, we’ve come up with some brand new ideas to share on what helps make the ultimate wedding welcome bag.


Made to give your guests that little extra thanks and feel appreciated, welcome bags are a perfect way to give back to your nearest and dearest – and do so in style! We loved making our bags with the inspirations from our brand new Wanderlust stationery collection. Adding in a few beach-ready accessories, we built the ultimate destination wedding welcome bag in no time and with a budget in mind. The key is working in a few necessities and some local flavor and you’ve got a welcome present that’s sure to wow!



Here’s a trick we learned while making these: you can take a simple favor and make it extraordinary with a few personal touches. Simply add a sticker, some twine or even a little tag and suddenly your store-bought stuffers seem like a personal token of gratitude. And, speaking of which, be sure not to forget your main ingredient – a thank you card!


We hope this inspires you to create your own ultimate wedding welcome bags! All you need is a tote, some stuffers and a thoughtful touch to leave your guests in awe. Happy crafting and best wishes on your destination wedding!
