@Beachy0404:  How bought this poem?

 

We made a little bag,
completely full of treats,
whether your mouth gets dry and thirsty,
or you’re in the mood for some sweets.
It’s just a small token
full of our love, hugs and kisses,
to thank you for the trip you’ve made
to see the new Mr. & Mrs.
 
And for the timeline you could do something like these??

I’m not sure if this is what you are looking for–

We included a little card (5″x4″) handwritten in each bag.  It was important for me to leave a handwritten note, some of our guests are traveling from another country and I didn’t want a “canned” letter.

They are not personally addressed (no names) since we don’t know who will get each bag. We varied the wording a bit on each one so no two guest would get the exact same note.

Examples:

Thank you so much for traveling to be here to celebrate with us.

Here are a few treats and some local information to make your stay more pleasant.

We can’t wait to see you at the wedding,

Love -(our first names)

****

It means so much to both of us that you were able to make the trip.  We cannot wait to celebrate with you at the wedding.

Please enjoy a few treats and some local information.  

We will see you soon.

love, (names)

****

We are so happy you are here.  We hope your trip was a pleasant one.

Here are a few treats and some local restaurants and things to do.

We look forward to celebrating with you very soon.

Love, (names)

***

On a separate sheet, we printed out restaurants and local attractions (restaurants on one side, things to do on the other).

Think the “Everything we do needs to be a cutesy poem!” trend is waaaaaaaaay overdone at this point. Last time I received a welcome bag it was just a timeline of events, some brochures from local attractions, a booklet of coupons for area restaurants/shops (this was actually really helpful), regional snacks, and a letter basically saying “Dear Matt & Rachel, thank you for joining us we look forward to seeing you tomorrow if you have any questions please call anyone but the bride”. Straightforward, clear, useful. I liked it a lot.
