There is something to be said for a perfectly curated wedding welcome bag. It helps to set the tone for the weekend ahead and creates a sense of excitement for things to come. Make your out of town guests feel right at home with some hand picked items that are a reflection of the region you chose to tie the knot in! Always include the essentials such as bottled water, emergency contact numbers, and snacks, then mix in some of our picks to create the ultimate wedding weekend swag bag.
Choose a unique Vessel
Ideally something reusable, like a tote bag that guests can reuse. Also pick something that can serve as a reminder of their memorable trip to New Hampshire.
A Travel Guide & MAP | WEEKEND ITINERARY
Make sure that guests know how to get around the area if they would like to explore. Mark major landmarks and happenings on a map for them, such as wedding ceremony location, reception location, sights of interests, trails, lakes, etc.
Include an itinerary with times and locations of key events happening throughout the weekend. Also be sure to provide a contact number (ideally not yours) just in case guests need to get in touch with someone.
Local and seasonal snacks are always a treat. Here are a few suggestions.
The "Tamworth" Cookie from the Lyceum.
New Hampshire Maple Syrup....you might even snag some that we tapped right here on property!
Local Spirits from the Tamworth Distillery.
Apple Cider Donuts. You can find these little tasty delights throughout the state in the fall.
A Touch of Luxury
Make your guests feel at home. A lovely scented hand lotion, some herbal tea, a hand poured candle, or some fresh flowers will do the trick.
Weather Related Necessities
Time of year and season play a big part of this one. Add in necessities that make sense for the season. Bug spray, chap stick, sunscreen, a cozy hat or warm mittens for winter. You get the idea.
A Personalized Note
Complete the package with a heartfelt short and sweet thank you note letting your guests know how much you appreciate them taking the time to celebrate with you.
