Fishing Cake Topper for Wedding / Groom’s Cake

A while back, we featured this gone fishing cake topper and it was a huge hit. And we loved it just as much as you did. But then the cake toppers were no longer available and bride-to-be, Ashleigh, came to us looking for one, and we think she (and you) will love what we’ve found! This topper has it all, from the adorable bride’s dress to the fishing rod to the puppy! And just wait until you see how this groom holds his bride. So sweet. Check it out below, by Anna Crafts:

10 Things Every Wedding Welcome Bag Needs

Wondering what to put in wedding welcome bags? You’re not alone! Find out below. And, before you jump in, be sure to add your name to our list for the latest. It’s FREE + you’ll never miss a post.

[W]e love hearing from our readers, so when Meghan wrote us with this Ask Emmaline question we swooped in to help. She is planning a wedding in her hometown of Wilmington, NC, but a handful of guests are coming from out of town (she currently lives in Chicago). She says,

Hi Emmaline! Many guests are flying in for my beach wedding in North Carolina and I want them to feel comfortable in the area. I’ve heard of wedding welcome bags, but I have no idea what to put in them. Any advice?

Great question, Meghan! A wedding welcome bag is a nice way to greet guests upon arrival. It’s also a sweet gesture, since your guests have traveled to be a part of your day. Say thank you by leaving a welcome bag in their hotel room (this can be coordinated with the hotel — just be sure to tip extra generously). We’ve compiled a list of top 10 things every wedding welcome bag needs to help. You can make them yourself with just a few, easy-to-find things! Read on for the list!

What to Put in Wedding Welcome Bags

Start with a bag:

We love a bag that can be re-used, and something like this is deep enough to be filled to the brim.

best day ever – by kaspi party | and so the adventure begins – by cotton and birch co | perfect day to drink champagne – by the yellow note | love bag – by wink events

Or something that is totally custom, like this illustrated tote…

Or say welcome to New York (um, it’s been waitin’ for you — I couldn’t resist a little TSwift) or any location with a map tote a la the lovely LH Calligraphy (left) or a state shape with heart on your location…
