The secret to my wedding success

One thing I quickly discovered when planning my destination wedding was that welcome bags for guests were an absolute must. When guests are spending extra money and taking time away from their lives to attend your wedding, it is important to show your gratitude and appreciation.
Want to know the absolute FAVORITE item in my welcome bag? A Shutterfly photo book that included pictures and names of every guest attending our wedding. With 125 of our closest friends and family at the same resort for a week, there were a lot of people meeting for the first time – and it’s a challenge to remember who’s who and how everyone knows the bride and groom when you have been drinking margaritas at the pool most of the day.
The main reason my husband and I chose to have a destination wedding was to give our friends and families time to get to know each other, and this booked helped more than I could have imagined. Our guests were so delighted when they first saw this book and expressed how helpful it was for them throughout the week. Some people even brought the books down to the pool so they could reference it if they needed to.
It was a great keepsake and even if people didn’t keep it, I know it was useful during the week. We also ordered an 8×11 to use as our guest book at the wedding. We added extra blank pages to the end so people could sign, but many people chose to sign by their picture.
How do you make one:
Other items in the welcome bag included a “survival kit” with snack bar, water, pain reliever, etc., and a Koozie (foam can cooler).
