Welcome Bag for Your Wedding Guests


Weddings are not only a wonderful day to remember for the bride and groom, but also a day for loved ones to celebrate. Chances are, you will either have a destination wedding or have many friends and family members that will be traveling far to attend your wedding. Either way, your attendees will travel whatever distance they have to in order to be there on your special day.

With so many making the road trip, have a welcome bag ready for your wedding guests, bridal party, or family members to welcome them to the wedding weekend. It’s one of the great ways you can thank your guests and help them get the celebration started! Within this post, you will explore a wedding welcome bag stocked with provisions for the wedding weekend using labels to help you get started on your own!

There is nothing worse than spilling a drink on your cocktail attire, getting a blister from dancing the night away, or having the strap of your dress break. Give your guests a first aid kit to save the day! After all, a marriage celebration is ‘in sickness and in health’.   Creating this first aid kit tag takes a few extra steps.

Step 1 — Stick your label on a piece of white cardstock paper.Creating a tag for first aid kits using a label.

Step 2 – Very carefully cut around the edges of the tag.
