Wedding Thank You Gifts

Thank you gifts and welcome baskets are often given to guests who have traveled a long distance to attend your wedding and to bridesmaids and groomsmen for participating in the big day. For your out-of-town guests, the welcome baskets are typically presented as they arrive at their accommodations. You can work with the hotel to coordinate delivery of your gifts so each guest feels appreciated and pampered on their arrival. Gifts for the wedding party are often presented at the rehearsal dinner or groom's dinner.

For the out-of-towners, a basket of fruit with a bottle of water used to be the norm, but today couples are getting more creative and personal with their gifts and welcome baskets. Here are a few ideas to get you started. Incorporate your own special twist and your guests will thank you for the incredibly thoughtful gesture.

Spa Bags & Baskets
You don't have to spend a fortune to prepare this pampering gift. Load cosmetic bags or totes with scrubs, lotions, lip gloss, a compact, and a loofah for a perfect spa bag. You can even add a robe and slippers to larger totes for a more elaborate thank you! Don't forget to add a touch of personalization either by monogramming the bag or including a handwritten note. Leave these in the rooms of guests who have traveled a long distance to indulge in a little R 'n' R before the festivities begin.



Welcome Baskets
A little less pricey, but equally appreciated, is the more traditional welcome basket! Include bottled water (add custom labels), munchies, teas, and coffees. You can include an itinerary of the wedding festivities, as well as maps to the venues and personalized thank you note to let your guests know how much you appreciate them making the trip.





Treat your bridesmaids to a great bag that is fashionable and functional. It's perfect to tote accessories, shoes, and makeup to the wedding venue. If you are having a destination or beach wedding, fill it with necessities such as a pair of flip flops, water, and a beach towel.




Winning Wine Caddy
Thank your wedding party with personalized picnic bags. A wine caddy filled with a bottle of wine and stuffed with a baguette and cheese is a guaranteed hit! You can include personalized bottle openers and wine toppers for an extra special touch. Top off the gift with a set of personalized wine glasses.

If you're looking for custom labels for water bottles, I highly recommend bottleyourbrand.com. We bought custom labels for water bottles for our wedding and they did a great job and had really reasonable prices. Plus, their designs are super cute.
