Welcome your out of town guests to your beach wedding! Fill these reusable beach wedding welcome bags with everything your guests will need to enjoy your wedding weekend. Think maps, water bottles, sweets, mints, and anything else you can think of. Afterwards your guests can fold it up, pack it, and re-live the memories of your special weekend every time they go shopping.
Last summer we spent months and months searching for beach wedding welcome bags for one of our visitors. Our biggest issue became the cost. At just $6.30 these market bags come pretty close to being affordable even for the bride and groom with lots of out of town guests. Be sure to take advantage of the any of the ongoing Zazzle sales of up to 50% off select products. If you can be patient, these bags do go on sale occasionally! One more thing >> even though the price of the flip flop bags seem higher, you can easily reduce that price to $6.30 by eliminating the design on the back. Simply press customize, choose the back side of the bag and delete all the design elements.

Big to Mini Etched Wines & Champagnes for Your Wedding >> Big Bottles
We just partnered with EtchedWine.com specifically because we love love love these etched wine bottles. Not only do these etched wine and champagne bottles look great, they make a huge impression. And many of the bottles can be filled with wine of your choosing. We love the fact that you can choose a six liter bottle to be the centerpiece on your wedding or rehearsal dinner tables and not only serve the wine, you can also have your guests sign the bottle as a “guest book” keepsake!
You can even order coordinating mini bottles to use as party favors. Or if that is a bit extravagant for your wedding budget, maybe just treat your out of town guests by including a mini bottle in your welcome bags.
One more thing >> these fabulous etched wines and champagnes are not just for weddings, they are great for any special occasion! Think fundraisers, milestone birthdays and anniversaries, retirement and graduation parties, and even celebrating the birth of a baby! They would even make a festive addition to Christmas and New Year’s Parties!
With so many decisions to be made during the course of planning a wedding too often the welcome bag is left to the last minute and then the whole process can get a bit overwhelming. Chances are your first stop is Pinterest – we know ours is. Once there, we inevitably fall victim to what we like to call Pinterest envy. OMG everything is stunning and every little detail is addressed in a chic & stylish way. But then we start pricing out all those details and after all is said and done some of those “little bags” filled can cost upwards of $50.00 each. We don’t know about you, but the thought of spending $5000 on 100 welcome bags seems insane. Plus, we are not huge fans of plastering the bride and grooms face on every water bottle and mint tin but rather prefer to choose one signature item and make that item special – think welcome to our wedding weekend Minibooks™ cards!
