You did it. You planned a wedding far from home, and now family and loved ones are flying in to see you say “I do.” And while blocking off some hotel rooms is customary, you might want to say “welcome to the celebration!” with just a little bit more. From cute candles to cozy cover-ups, here are some thoughtful gifts to make your wedding guests feel right at home, no matter where they are.

Wedding Welcome Bag

A wedding welcome bag is the perfect little gift to leave for guests as they check in for your destination wedding—you can include anything that might be helpful for them (think: local maps, sunscreen, lip balm…) in either a paper or canvas bag that’s customized for the occasion.

Wedding Flip-Flops

Getting married somewhere with sand? Place assorted flip flops in a big, galvanized bucket or wooden crate to let people kick their shoes off—literally—should they want to. These ones even let your guests pick a “team”—you can have them on either side of the aisle.

Mini Candles

Let there be light. These mini candles are a great sendoff for your guests—and the tins can be reused once the candle is long gone.

Bottle Openers

Talk about a cute takeaway! These bottle openers are the perfect destination wedding welcome, with a cheers to new adventures ahead—literally.


If you’re getting married somewhere where the temperature can fluctuate (and fast), consider investing in a bulk order of customized pashminas or shawls that can serve as the wedding favor.

Chocolate Bars

A little bit of chocolate will guarantee that guests have a sweet stay. Bars with a touch of sea salt are a fun choice for a beach wedding.

Customized Mint Tins

These tins have heart-shaped mints that can be toted around all weekend long—from pre-wedding drinks to after-wedding brunch.

Mini Boxes of Water

Keep your guests hydrated upon check-in and keep the earth happy too with these boxes of water. The packaging is made from paper, and the water comes from municipal sources to reduce the carbon footprint.

Hangover Kits

Similar to a wedding welcome bag, a hangover kit will help guests let loose, knowing they have the supplies to be taken care of the next day. Grab these personalized bags and fill them with helpful items like Advil, water, Alka-Seltzer, Visine, and anything else you think would help your guests out following the festivities.
