If you’re wondering what to get your guests when they arrive at your destination wedding or how to say thanks with a thoughtful and creative wedding favor, then this story is for you! We’re sharing more destination wedding ideas from our recent stay at Engage!17: Nizuc where they gifted us with the most amazing and super creative destination wedding goodies.
It’s customary to give guests at a destination wedding some sort of welcome amenity, in the form of a gift bag, a special treat or even just a personal note thanking them for their travel and time. But if you want to go a little bit bigger than that, the sky is the limit! You can theme your gifts to the location, the activities they plan to partake in and of course the wedding day palette or motif too. For the Engage event in Cancun, Gifts for the Good Life created the swag we received and presented it in a shopping format so each guest got exactly what we wanted as we filled our welcome bags. How fun for the entire family!
During the “shopping” experience there was even a mezcal tasting to get the party started. Anything that reflects the destination is an ideal way to welcome your loved ones.
The goodies we got were functional and fashionable – everything from a wrap to keep warm in the evening and sun protects to enjoy on the beach.
The actual welcome bag itself was even sourced to reflect the setting of Mexico! The hangover kits we received matched the theme of the party the evening before and all the items were branded with the logo of the event and elements that showcased the best of Cancun.
You certainly don’t have to give as many gifts as we were lucky enough to enjoy; even a small token of appreciate goes a long way. But consider the culture, the destination, and even your wedding palette to show your guests you went that extra mile to make their experience as incredible as possible. They’ll thank you for the thank you!
