@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.


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.
