The following items should be included in all welcome bags:
Map of the Region
Timeline of the weekend activities
Bottles of water
Be creative in your bag selection, the types of containers varies from tote bags, to white gift bags to gable boxes.
Tote bags, are filled with snacks, local items and items that represent the couple
Tag the bags with custom tags that match your theme of the wedding.
Add some after party hangover kits, filled with advil, alka seltzer, tums are just some suggestions
Create bags that are native to the area, in NYC we hand out 5th Avenue candy bars, pretzels and apples
In the Caribbean, for planned activities we included snorkeling equipment with sunscreen, aloe and candy native to the island
Palm bags are great, this bag was used a favor with a picture frame that we had photos taken of each guest
Towels are great for the bags, that are personalized with the wedding theme
