Planning Tips | Wedding Welcome Bags for your Out of Town Guests

With Michigan being a wedding destination location, many of our clients put together welcome bags for their guests. They can be filled with almost anything - snacks, information about the area, wine, sweets, special treats for the kids, etc. The possibilities are endless!

A couple months ago, Daisy, a 2008 Pearls Events bride, shared the contents of her welcome bag. I wanted to share it here, just in case you were wondering exactly what goes into a welcome bag and how much it will cost you to put together.

Goodies that Filled their Bags:

  • 4 assorted beers, New Holland Brewery, ($1.70 per beer)
  • 2 bottles of water to complete the 'six pack', Sams Club, (13¢ per bottle)
  • Dessert truffles (4 truffles total), Heilman's, ($4.25 per box)
  • 2 packages of cookies (4 cookies total), Sam's Club, (27¢ a cookie pack)
  • 2 packs Gardetto's Snack Mix, Sam's Club, (27¢ a package)
  • 2 packs of mixed nuts, Sam's Club, (75¢ per package)
  • Traverse City map, Provided by the Convention and Visitors Bureau, (FREE)
  • Reusable shopping bag, Amazon, Cmya brand, ($2.00 a bag + Shipping)
Cost Breakdown per Bag (one bag per couple)
  • 4 beers @ 1.70 = $6.80
  • 2 Waters @ 0.13 = 26¢
  • Truffles @ 4.25 = $4.25
  • 2 Cookie Pack @ 0.27 = 54¢
  • 2 Snack Mix @ 0.27 = 54¢
  • 2 Mixed Nuts @ 0.75 = $1.50
  • 1 bag @ 2.00 = $2
= $15.89 per bag
