Greet your out of town guests with a customized welcome bag or basket at the hotel. These bags add a nice touch and really show your guests how much you appreciate them traveling to help you celebrate your big day! To help you create a great welcome bag or basket we have put together a checklist to make sure you have everything!

1. Itinerary– Make sure guests have an itinerary of the weekend’s events to keep them in the loop.

2. Snack and/or Drink– Add your favorite candy or a treat related to the city. For example, for an Atlanta wedding a glass bottle of Coca-Cola, a peach, bag of peanuts, or a cookie in the shape of Georgia.

3. Small Keep Sake-Include a small keep sake for your guests to take home with them. Some great ideas are a small candle, a hand cream, or a personalized magnet.

4. Map of the City– It’s nice to list a few local places for guests to enjoy dinner, local shops, or some great tourist spots. Just make sure they have their itinerary handy so they are on time to your big event!

5. A Thank You Note– The final touch is a thank you note, this will really let your out of town guests know you appreciate them being a part of your wedding day. Use pretty paper and a fancy font to make it look hand written.

Don’t forget the bag or basket! Using a small canvas tote or basket is a great option because it allows your guests to reuse it! Get the canvas bags screen-printed with you and you groom’s names and the date or use a large tag on the baskets.  Get creative and add you and your groom’s own personal touch!

When it comes to planning your wedding, picking the venue is first decision you make. It can be overwhelming looking at different places and trying to narrow down the perfect spot to host your event.

It often helps to step back and look at it in a different way. Brides should sit down with their grooms and keep in mind that this is the first event you are hosting together. Let the space reflect both of your personalities and make sure you are both comfortable with the choice. To help you get started here are a few topics that we use at We Tie The Knots to help you find your perfect venue!

  1. How formal do you want the event to be?
  2. Is there a location or place that is meaningful to both of you?
  3. Do you want an outside wedding or inside wedding?
  4. Consider your guest count when selecting your venue.
  5. Do you prefer to be able to bring in your own alcohol?
  6. Consider parking or transportation for bridal party and guests.
  7. Consider your entertainment, if you want a band; make sure there is plenty of room for a stage. Or opt for a DJ that’s just a fun but doesn’t need as much room.
  8. Do you want the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at the same location?
  9. Do you prefer a venue with an in-house caterer or bring in your own?
  10. Does the venue have a food or beverage minimum?
  11. Ask what is included in the rental price, each venue is different with the items they include such as chairs, tables, linens, etc.

With the help of We Tie The Knots and these essential questions, we will get you thinking in the right direction. It’s fun to think outside the box too! Choosing the perfect venue will effect the rest of your planning so making sure it reflects you both as a couple is the best advice!
