Destination Wedding Welcome Bags

by | Inspired Plans, Weddings



Since we’re having a destination wedding, I wanted to put together a little bag of goodies to deliver to our guests shortly after we arrive.

The main purpose is to share a few little creature comforts as everyone is settling in, but also, to inform everyone of what’s on & what to do while in Fiji.

The bag contains:

  • 2 bottles Fiji Water (Our resort will be arranging these for us & will leave a box in our room on arrival so we can assemble the bags with the rest of the goodies we’ll be taking with us)
  • A Pure Fiji Soap
  • Selection of Cadbury chocolates from a box of Favourites
  • Mini notebook from Kikki.K
  • Recycled ‘Green’ Pen

The welcome notes match my invitation set featured back in October.

The white kraft bags were from ebay seller shop fair & the kraft chocolate bags are from Spotlight.

Ms Gingham says: Such a great idea to give a personal touch and welcome to your guests. Love the simple styling that matches the theme so far too!

We’re having an intimate wedding at Maui Palms, Fiji in January 2013 with our immediate families & closest friends. It’s a place extremely close to our hearts, as it’s not only a place we’ve visited 3 times before, but the place we got engaged. You can read our engagement story here.

    Wow, what a nice idea. I like how clean everything looks, sort of like how a hotel prepares for its guests.

    I think Fiji water bottles are a work of art. Love these!
