Welcome Bags

Happy Wedding Wednesday! 

I'm headed off to Austin, TX today but wanted to share some photos and wedding tips! 

I wanted to have some kind of "Welcome Bag" for out of town guests in the hotel blocks we reserved. For those of you out of the loop, the Welcome bag is for out of town guests and should have some things they need inside. Ours were filled with wedding info, water (with a wedding label!), gum, snacks, maps and brochures. 

For the bag themselves, you can use any bag. We wanted it to be an eco-choice but fabric tote bags weren't in our budget. So we collected every brown bag that was gently used. I was even trading with friends when I saw them carrying a bag. 

  I decorated this bag myself and hosted a craft night with my friends. I told them to use mine as inspiration and go wild! I got out all of my paper scraps, stickers, die cuts, stamps, etc and let them create! Their designs were amazing and I couldn't have pulled this off without them. Thank you!!!

 Here are some of the things they came up with:
