Niagara Falls Wedding Guest Bags
In the days leading up to your wedding, you’ll be so busy that chances are you won’t be able to greet all of your out of town guests personally. But as the wedding guests arrive at Niagara Falls or Niagara-on-the-Lake, you can certainly have something waiting for them that will make them feel special and know how much you appreciate them coming to celebrate your special day. Putting together Niagara Falls wedding guest bags for your out of town guests is the perfect way to make your guests feel right at home here in Niagara. Maybe before the week/weekend starts, you want to see Niagara for all it is and take a tour? If you do, you can check out Tours4Fun to see what they can do for you during this time.
If you’re unsure of what to put in your wedding guest bags, we’ve listed some ideas for you below. In terms of what you want to put your items into, it’s entirely up to you. You can search out beautiful and trendy totes or use a basket or decorative re-usable plastic container. However, once you’ve put together an amazing welcome bag, you’ll need to get it to them. You can ship bags (or boxes) to your guests, but that will cost you. If you’ve got too many things to do before your wedding, assign someone to distribute the bags at the hotels your guests will be staying at. They can either hand out the bags personally as people arrive or you can arrange to have hotel staff place the bags in your guests’ rooms.
Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake are home to amazing and unique items, particularly tender fruits like peaches and cherries, award-winning wines and artisan breads and cheeses. Select something that is representative of the Niagara region to give your guests a flavour of our area. Make sure to ask Patti for some hints!
No one wants to leave Niagara Falls without a souvenir, so do the legwork for your guests. Find Niagara Falls snow globes or other kitschy knick knacks or a pre-stamped postcard of the Falls they can send to a loved one who isn’t at the wedding.
Let your guests know when and where things will be taking place. You can include a welcome letter and papers detailing maps, phone numbers, dress code information and contact information for someone in case they have questions. Make sure you delegate this responsibility to a member of your bridal party. You will be busy enough without fielding calls and texts about times and locations from your out of town guests.
Wow! Where to start for Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake guests! If you have out of town guests coming for your wedding, chances are they’ll come for a couple of days before or after the big day, giving them lots of opportunities to see Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake sites. Include brochures, maps, discount coupons and other items in your wedding guest bags. And give them recommendations. Don’t just list Niagara Falls, suggest the Niagara Sky Wheel or Journey Behind the Falls. Also, include your favourite shopping destinations and restaurants and hints on where to get the best deals (sometimes, you can save a substantial amount if you dine outside the immediate Fallsview area). They will appreciate any insight you can give them on what’s best to see in Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Make sure you have some refreshments included in your wedding guest bags, such as a bottle of Niagara wine or Niagara craft beer, as well as chips, other nibbles and pop and water. You want to keep your guests satisfied without sending them to the hotel gift shop.
If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, include sunscreen or bug repellent, or perhaps include a decorative fan. Also plan for the day after the wedding by providing some hangover helpers, such as Advil or Tylenol, Alka-seltzer, or other emergency necessities, such as Band Aids, stain remover or mini sewing kits.
Your Favourite Things
Do you have a favourite book or magazine? Do you love to do crossword puzzles? Do you enjoy music? Why not include these items in your wedding guest kits? You can share your personality with your out of town guests and give them something to do while they’re just relaxing at the hotel room.
Your guests know how much time you’ve already spent planning your wedding and they understand how busy you are. Including a handwritten note in your wedding guest bag is not only thoughtful, it’s a great way to show your guests how special they are and how much they mean to you and your fiancée.
Niagara Falls wedding guest bags are a great choice!
