Wedding Welcome Bags

If you've ever gone out of town for a wedding, you likely love it when the bride and groom leave you a little welcome gift when you check-in. These wedding welcome bags are such a special touch, and if done correctly, will tie in with the rest of your wedding. Plus, your out-of-town guests will love them and feel super appreciated for traveling to come celebrate with you!

WHAT TO FILL THE BAGS WITH
