Brides: if you’re planning a destination wedding or have guests traveling from other states or countries, wedding welcome boxes upon arrival are a must! We’ve seen wedding welcome bags, but these gable boxes are the latest trend. Find out how you can make your own wedding welcome boxes with expertise from Prepping Parties, your source for welcome boxes, labels, itineraries, water bottle labels, etc. They have everything you need to make your welcome boxes absolutely perfect. Enjoy!
Wedding Welcome Boxes
The shop at Prepping Parties has anything you can imagine to bring your wedding welcome boxes to life.
Here’s how easy it is to create your own boxes in three easy steps.
1. Choose gable boxes and ribbon.
First, to make your own welcome boxes, you’ll need to order gable boxes and coordinating ribbon. Once you choose your color (kraft brown or white are popular options), choose a ribbon to match your wedding. We recommend selecting a color ribbon that ties into your color palette or the season.
2. Design labels for your wedding welcome boxes.
Once you’ve selected your gable boxes and ribbon, it’s time to design your label. The labels are really what make these wedding welcome boxes unlike others we’ve seen; the personalization is amazing! Take a look at some of our hand-picked favorites from their shop.
Going to Hawaii for your wedding? We like these welcome boxes with Hawaiian flair. Don’t forget the leis!
Hilton Head: a beautiful place to have a wedding! And we love the Adirondack chairs on these welcome box labels.
For nautical weddings, we love these variations.
Planning a Philadelphia wedding? Make sure you greet guests with these custom boxes, complete with a view of the Philadelphia skyline.
As mentioned, you can choose welcome box labels for your wedding season, rather than wedding colors. For instance, here’s an example of wedding welcome boxes for a fall wedding.
For a winter or Christmas themed wedding, these wedding welcome boxes are festive.
3. Select items to go inside the wedding welcome boxes
This is the fun part: filling up your boxes! We recommend the following items in your welcome boxes.
Include at least two bottles of water with coordinating bottle labels.
Upon arrival, guests may be hungry. I know whenever I check into a hotel, I’m pretty hungry, tired, or need a serious caffeine pick-me-up. Choose snacks like pretzels, nuts, cookies, or granola bars to give guests a boost in energy. These bars are jam-packed with protein and taste great, so they’re a good choice for guests to get energized upon arrival. We also recommend these coffee drinks. Tossing in a bag of coffee (if there’s a local favorite blend, like this coffee for a Michigan wedding) or a gift card for a local coffee shop is also a wonderful idea.
We love the idea of a wedding itinerary inside guests’ welcome boxes. Here are a few examples of itinerary styles to choose from (the customization choices are endless) in their shop.
If you’d like, a map of the town where they are staying and suggestions for favorite places to visit is also recommended.
And there you have it… making your own wedding welcome boxes is easy! And let me tell you, guests are always so impressed by the kind gesture. You can have wedding welcome boxes waiting for guests upon arrival at their hotel; simply leave them with the concierge to present upon check-in.
