Custom Wedding Welcome Bags to Thank Guests

Destination weddings are common events these days and couples want to find ways to thank guests for their support. Whether the destination is the seashore or mountains, most guests will have to travel long distances to attend the wedding. This is where the wedding welcome bag comes into play.

The welcome favor bag can range in size, style and price. I wrote this page to show the various types Cloth tote bags I have available to design on. The fabric totes cost more than paper, but they make very nice gifts. To save money choose a paper gift bag, which is also easy to personalize. Both types can be filled with gifts, or as in the wine bag – a nice bottle of spirits!

Please note that any of my designs can be transferred to any type or size of bag. Just ask, and I will make it for you!

Wedding favors are often handed out at the wedding reception, but the welcome bag is also a type of favor. A favor is a “thank you” and traveling guests deserve a nice thank-you.

At Sandpiper Wedding we offer many wedding welcome bags and all of them contain lines of template text. Most will say, “Welcome” and contain a place for the names of the bride and groom. Often the location and date will be included as well.

The most popular choice of bag has been Zazzle’s Budget Tote. The Budget Tote is a natural color, with optional handle colors that include: Navy Blue, Hunter Green, Dark Red, Black and Natural.

Prices will vary by style and type of bag, but every bag offers bulk order discounts!
