Welcome to our celebration! We are so pleased that you are joining us!

Welcome Bags, commonly called “out of town bags,” are a great way to greet people who have probably put some real effort into attending your wedding. Bags stocked with regional delicacies are a thoughtful bit of hospitality. Share your local treasures with your guests. These bags can be as elaborate or as simple as one

wishes, it is all about the personalization.

Here are some wonderful options to include in a New York City themed bag:
A NYC street and subway map
A Metrocard
Henri Bendel Mints
Henri Bendel Make-up Bag
Kiehl’s Products - to place in the make-up bag
C.O. Bigelow Products - ditto
William Greenberg Jr.’s Desserts - mini black and white cookies
Dean and Deluca - SoHo blend coffee is to die for
Manhattan Special - espresso flavored soda with almost a cult following
Brooklyn Lager
Wine from North Fork
NYC themed children’s book or coloring set

Regardless of your locale, a hand-written welcome note complete with a detailed schedule of the weekend will be appreciated. Thank your guests for making the trip, and include a little packet of suggestions, such as your favorite neighborhoods, stores, bars, restaurants, and museums. Also, give them some hip tips. Are there happy hours that guests might enjoy? What about free nights at museums? Make them feel special and in the know. Be good to these valued folks and set the celebratory tone of the weekend. They are your Guests!
