Your wedding is the most special of days, where you share your love for your best friend in an intimate setting. Sure, right? Capping off your wedding festivities with an escape to a destination of crystal blue waters and views of the beach can be the perfect setting for your nuptials. Destination weddings are stress-free, relaxing and less expensive.
But, how do you celebrate your nearest and dearest that hopped on a plane to watch you and your partner say your vows? Take a deep breath. The below will help.
To honor your guests, here’s our top picks to pack into the ultimate destination welcome tote. Now you can get back to the fun stuff, like daydreaming about your honeymoon.
- Swag bag
Your wedding can be a blast for guests, but your wedding favors don’t have to become home décor for years to come. Instead, think something useable in day-to-day life.
- Note for weekend line-up
A handwritten welcome note is always a nice touch. These letters should be short and sweet. Be sure to take this time to thank your guests for making the trek to your destination. Also, adding a wedding weekend itinerary is essential to keep informed of celebrations and — no-brainer — add contact info.
Boozing and weddings are two things that typically go together. Offer your guests some warm-fuzzy feelings in a mini bottle of local rum or wine. You can also opt for non-alcoholic local drinks — draw from local fruits for inspiration.
- Go local
You don’t need a beachside zip code to reap the benefits the local offers. Ask around to get the skinny on where to shop and what to buy for one-of-a-kind gifts to pop into your goodie gift bag.
- The basics
Before you start to clink Champagne glasses, make sure your guests have the right supplies on hand for a weekend-long party. This includes water, aloe, surf wax and whatever else your guests may need for a well-prepared and comfy weekend.
