For wedding guests, there’s nothing quite as welcoming as arriving in their hotel room to find a basket filled with luxurious gifts. Luxury welcome baskets set the tone for the festivities that follow. They show your appreciation for friends and family who have traveled to be with you. And, if you’re planning a destination wedding, they’re also a wonderful way to give your guests a taste of what the location has to offer! Even if you’re not planning a destination wedding, I would highly recommend giving a welcome gift to your out-of-town guests. It’s a thoughtful gesture that shows how thankful you are that they’re there.
One of the bespoke services Alejandra Poupel Events offers to our clients is custom luxury welcome baskets. Each of these is carefully curated, depending on the client and the wedding theme and location. Everything is done for you. We present shopping ideas for luxury gifts, from electronics to beauty products. We then purchase them on your behalf and deliver them to your guests – beautifully displayed, of course!
There are a few elements that a good wedding welcome basket should always contain. The first is a wedding weekend itinerary, with all the details guests need to know. For example, the locations of each pre- and post-wedding event, dress codes, concierge information, etc. You can combine this with a city guide and tuck everything into a stylish custom sleeve. We have a wonderful selection available. They include both paper city guides and digital guides delivered via an app guests download to their phones. You can also present guests with a fun newspaper with your love story, interviews, and highlights of your lives together.
The basket should also contain a combination of practical and fun goodies. For example:
How you present your luxury gift basket is another consideration. We have lots of wonderful options, from tote bags to quality boxes tied with custom Sinjerac ribbon.
Whatever you choose for your luxury welcome baskets, it’s sure to make your guests feel cherished. It’s the best way to get your wedding weekend off to a memorable start!
