I just adore these baskets of goodies! I remember when I worked at the Mills House in Charleston and a local wedding planner delivered them to the front desk to hand out to guests as they arrived. Oh my goodness, they were so cute! They were packed full of Southern delights, Charleston maps, hangover helpers, and lots of little goodies. As the guests arrived they were so excited to receive them too.

Here are a few ideas of what to place in your Welcome Baskets:

  • Itinerary for the Week/Day/Etc
  • Transportation Details, for example a shuttle schedule to and from the wedding
  • Local Maps and Guides to the area
  • Local Menus, Coupon Books, Attraction Brochures
  • Tickets to a local museum
  • Coffee from the local shop
  • Tylenol, Eye Drops, and Pepto for that long night of fun
  • Water Bottles, also for that long night of fun
  • Personalized Door Hangers (Privacy: We stayed up all night partying with the new Mr. & Mrs.)
  • Kid’s Activities for the little ones that come along
  • Wine from local Vineyard / Beer from local Brewery
  • Homemade Cookies made by Aunt or Granny
  • Sunscreen / Bug Spray / Lotion
  • Anything Cute & Homemade
  • Bride & Groom Favorites from the area
