New York City Theme Wedding Welcome Bag Ideas
While New York City is a destination for many couples, here at Simply Styled Events, Ann Marie is lucky to call this city home. Wedding welcome bags are a great way to kick off the celebrations and let your guests feel the love, whether they are coming from near or far. As wedding planners, we suggest keeping the bags simple and including a few local and unique items as opposed to generic snacks. While the basics like advil, liquid-iv and tums are always a good idea, we wanted to outline some of our favorite New York City treats that can be included in your wedding welcome bag.
The Bag Itself | Consider designing your own bag or pulling from your wedding invitations to get inspiration. If you are having a large wedding, you can often buy custom, reusable bags in bulk for a reasonable price. Decided to go with paper bags? You can still create a fun wedding stamp or ribbon to jazz up the bag!
The Items | For many guests, your welcome bag is their first peak into your wedding weekend. Keep that in mind as you select what items you'd like to include and remember to keep things fun!
William Greenberg Black and White Cookies | these are some of our favorite black and white cookies and the best part is, they come individually wrapped and are available in fun colors!
Tate's Mini Cookies | if black and white cookies aren't your thing or you just love sweets like us, consider including tiny Tate's. We love the packaging and it's hard to resist these crunchy classics!
Baked in Brooklyn pita chips | of course we have to have some savory goodies in the bag and these baked in brooklyn pita chips fit the bill!
Hal's Seltzer & Chips | we love Hal's because you can include their potato chips and seltzer! We are big fans of the black cherry seltzer flavor but you really can't go wrong!
Greyston Baker | we got turned onto these treats a while ago and have never looked back! While these treats are absolutely delicious, they also have a really cool story and mission- read more about that here!
While there are many local goodies that can fill your New York City wedding welcome bag, we hope these ideas help! What local items did you include in your welcome bag?!
