Welcome Guests!

Brides and Grooms, are you having a lot of out of town guests?  Here is a cute simple idea that will make your guests feel right at home!

A welcome basket made within a small suit case.  Yes the small suit cases can be expensive so you can use an alternative like a basket or gift bag or decorative paper box they can discard or fold up to take back home.

Some things to include are:
Q     A detailed itinerary to make sure everyone knows where to go and at what time
Q     A map or guide book of the area
Q     Bottles of water
Q     Snacks that can save them money from the overpriced hotel gift shop such as crackers, chocolates or other mini favors similar to those for your wedding
Q     Refreshing mints or gum, maybe include your wedding font on the outside tin
Q     A fix me up kit containing a sew kit and spot remover
Q     A small bag of luxury hygiene items
Q     A small scented candle that has a warm and inviting scent, maybe include your wedding font on the outside tin
Q     A fun game or favor that relates to your wedding

These are just a few key pieces to make them feel more at home!
