DIY luxury destination wedding welcome gifts for guests

Are you looking for a luxurious gift option for your couples to give guests at their destination weddings? Try a custom canvas bag filled with essential goodies! For our example, we used a canvas bag and ironed on a design from the Wedding Day Client Magazine. Creating the bag was simple: we flipped our design horizontally (so that the letters would be correct after ironing), printed it onto white t-shirt transfer paper, then ironed it onto our canvas bag.

When figuring out what to recommend for your bride's bag, keep in mind her budget, destination, and style of her wedding. For instance, she could save quite a bit and show off her bridesmaids' baking skills by including homemade cookies instead of ordering sweet treats like macarons online.

Items shown in our example: 1. Canvas bag 2. Wedding Day Client Magazine 3. Mini Champagne 4. Sweet treats 5. Local postcard 6. Mineral water spray 7. Local map

And that's exactly where sinking unscheduled, unintentional time into social media will get you: nowhere.

Next to framed art, albums are a favorite, no-brainer product you should be offering every client. Albums are the one product that truly stands the test of time and will be treasured for generations to come. Not long ago, album design went a bit “photographers-gone-wild” with acrylic, metal, and even fur covers. Remember that panoramic ultra-wide album fad?

Luckily the tide has turned back to favoring a classic, luxury presentation.

Netflix. HBO. & Hulu.

That could be about 70% of my off season. The time a friend introduced me to Game of Thrones was the most epic two months of my life (sorry adulthood). BUT, the keyword in that first sentence is “could be”. My biggest love during off season is stepping out of my living room for a travel adventure.
