So you ask, what are welcome bags? So a little background to help you out... Jordan, The Welcome Bag Committee's founder, has planned and designed weddings for 15 years and is still a very active luxury wedding planner & designer in the country.
She saw a need many years ago as it related to 'wedding welcome bags' for her clients. So to give you a little background, when a couple gets married, they always tend to have guests coming in from out of town to their wedding or they have guests staying in or around the wedding locale to celebrate.
To say 'thank you' to their guests, who tend to utilize many resources to attend a wedding, couples choose to either gift their guests upon check in at the hotel(s) or have their welcome gift delivered to their rooms. So with this in mind, Jordan would observe how stressed her clients would get over their welcome bags. They didn't really know where to begin the creative process and would tend to only think about them as the wedding drew near. So Payne wanted to launch a company that designed and offered wedding welcome bags.
What used to be more of a trend at very high end weddings back 15 years ago, is now a touch that almost all brides like to provide their guests today.
Wedding welcome bags can honestly be gifted for anything, but for this purpose, it typically begins with a beautiful bag or box filled with specialty items that are customized to the couple's wedding or items that reflect the couples favorite things! They can be super creative and fun too!
The Welcome Bag Committee rolls out new styled welcome bags monthly and will soon be launching 'build your own'! As mentioned, these beauties can be gifted for any occasion! In addition to the welcome bag division, Payne is super excited to be launching her own line of entertaining & specialty products along with her gift shop of unique and pretty gifting! Gifting should be fun and special, so she is looking forward to offering her customers an array of well, pretty things to shop from!
