Our Outstanding Occasions team had the incredible opportunity to attend the Engage!13 Wedding Luxury Business Summit back in December at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia. We were inspired by the inventive welcome gifts we received throughout the conference. The thoughtful and unique packaging showcased at Engage!13 would be perfect for future wedding welcome bag ideas. Here are five of our favorites from the experience:
1. Hello Delicious and Gorgeous
As attendees, we were greeted with bright yellow welcome totes filled to the brim with plenty of amazing goodies including savory snacks and sweets, scented candles, a marvelous travel mug, a very cute necklace and a cozy cashmere scarf. To create a similar idea for weddings, the couple could select some of their favorite items to share with their guests.
2. Hello Engage
Who wouldn’t love a chevron cosmetic clutch filled with plenty of conference cures? Our cases featured lemon lip balm and scrub, a mini personal mister, eye drops, yummy lotion, and stress relieving patches. For weddings, couples could fill a clutch with items their guests might need to survive the wedding weekend.
3. Hello Inspiration
Our wonderful week continued with more fun surprises including an inspiring box filled with enough goodness to get our creative juices flowing. We absolutely loved the clever packaging presentation! We encourage couples to think “outside the bag” with their welcome gift ideas. Not every welcome gift has to actually be presented in a bag of some sort. Incorporating different ideas such as boxes, tins or baskets could take the presentation factor to the next level.
4. Hello Sunshine
This gift was an extremely thoughtful one. The lovely tin featured ear plugs, a lavender eye mask, detox remedies, and Motrin. It would be a great hangover kit for wedding guests for the morning after.
5. Hello Organization
We saved the best for last with this awesome organization kit. The Grid It creates such a cool display of many office must-haves. Couples could personalize gadgets and office supplies for their guests. Everyone loves getting organized!
We could totally see these gift ideas translate into some pretty neat wedding welcome bags. With a few special touches like customization, color choices, and great goodies you could leave a lasting impression on your wedding guests well after the weekend is over!
