You’ve put countless hours into planning the perfect wedding weekend. Now it’s time to share those key events with your special guests. To do so, we recommend a wedding itinerary or as it is sometimes referred to, a welcome note. Oftentimes wedding itineraries are paired with a gift box or small favor to greet your guests when they arrive at their hotel.

As you begin to think about your wedding itinerary we recommend that you consider the following 5 key pieces of information.

First of all, begin with a lovingly written note to welcome your guests. There is no better way to kick-off the weekend than by sharing your true appreciation for the journey that your guests have made.

After your initial greeting it’s important to identify the key weekend activities. This should include the date, time and location for each event. Oftentimes this will include details about the Rehearsal Dinner, a Welcome Party (if there is one), the Wedding itself and the Reception. And, if only certain guests are invited (such as the wedding party only) then it’s important to highlight that as well.

Along with a list of key activities it’s also essential to include any travel considerations for the weekend. Some weddings will have a shuttle to and from the hotel for different events. It’s especially important to share those shuttle times. There are also some locations that might be better suited for guests to arrive by Lyft or Uber while other locations may require specific details around parking.

Fourth on the list for wedding itinerary must-haves is the couple’s favorite spots to visit in town. This will be especially nice for those who are unfamiliar with the city. Adding favorite or conveniently located restaurants is sure to be appreciated. And add in a few of your favorite spots or tourist destinations for those who are spending a few extra days in town. It might also be helpful to include a map of the area. These often double as beautiful artwork.

And finally, if you have a planner or month of, or day of coordinator, include their contact info somewhere on the note. This will allow your guests to contact someone other than you with any questions about the weekend.

There’s no better way to greet your wedding guests than with a beautifully wrapped welcome box or one-of-a-kind basket full of your love and appreciation (in the form of food and gifts of course). Your guests, especially those who spent hours traveling, will no doubt be grateful for those branded waters and carefully curated snack packs.

Wedding welcome bags and boxes are exciting to think about as they can be such a fun extension of the wedding brand. When it comes to branding your gift we’ve targeted 3 important areas to consider.

The first is the actual vessel that you’ll use. Once the gift items have been chosen, it’s time to figure out what they’ll fit best in. This could be a bag, or a box or even a basket or tote. The type of containment will depend heavily on the budget but also what will best hold them on (size and weight). Regardless of the box used a tag or sticker on the outside will let your guests know that the gift at the hotel lobby is part of the wedding experience. Here are some fun ideas of branded welcome boxes.

The second way to brand your welcome box is to include labels on some or all of the items included in the box. This could include water bottle labels to small tags on tied goods or stickers on bagged items. All options are a great way to share sweet messages, include a hashtag or simply continue the branded theme throughout.

And last but not least is the inclusion of a welcome note and/or itinerary. This branded card will provide a special message along with any important details for the wedding weekend. Be sure to include times, important parking info and wedding contacts (such as a planner). It can also be helpful to share with your guests your favorite restaurants or hot spots.

Your furry best friend successfully carried your rings all the way down the aisle?! What better way to pay homage to your him than with his namesake on every cocktail napkin and sign!

Cocktail signs and cocktail napkins are a great way to have some fun at your reception. While they certainly provide another opportunity to carry on the wedding design theme, it’s also the perfect place to tastefully deviate from the wedding brand. It all starts with a great concept and beautiful artwork.

Cocktail signs are gaining popularity, particularly those with signature drinks that are meaningful to the couple. We’ve seen everything from a fun drink name that honors a memorable vacation to the name of a couple’s dog along with his/her image.

You'd rather stick to the theme? Signature cocktail signs can be a great way to carry it through to your wedding reception. Some couples choose to have two different signature drinks; one for the bride and one for the groom, one for each bride, one for each groom, whatever strikes your fancy! You can add a sketch of the finished cocktail or a custom watercolor painting of your wedding or reception venue.

Cocktail napkins are also a place where we see couples show their unique personalities. Foil pressed monograms are a big hit with a lot of our couples on their wedding day. The foil can be matte or shiny depending on the look you're going for. We also love the sweet, soft look of full color watercolor monograms!

Why not have some fun with your reception cocktail napkins? Adding an image of your furry friend, a funny anecdote, or even some fun facts can be the perfect way to add your personality to the festivities!

If you are ready to create a new design with custom artwork let us know! Or, find one of our predesigned signs or napkins today!
