Out of Town Gift Bags
Happy Tuesday, ya'll!
Today I'm diving into our Out of Town gift bags. My bags had a Virginia theme and my wedding's theme was Southern comfort, so I tried to merge both of these ideas into our little bags.
To match the country chic theme, I got brown paper bags from a small party store in Roanoke called Captain Party. They were pretty cheap and looked really great once they were all set up on my parent's dining room table.
Then we went to Michaels and got 12 sheets of brown construction paper and cut out little luggage tags that said, "Welcome to Our Wedding. Love, Jess and Z" We then hole punched the top and tied blue straw through them-also bought at Michaels.
Then, we stuffed the bags with fun Virginia items like Route 11 potato chips, Va peanuts, a postcard of Roanoke, a Virginia map and a personalized CD that was filled with songs that reminded us of our relationship or that were included in the reception.
To make the CD, Z and I went to Staples and bought a lot of blank CDs and then blank CD labels that we designed with our colors and monogram.
Finally, since most of our guests came from out of town, we decided to include fun restaurants or activities they could partake in around Roanoke.
The back had more of an "adult" theme meaning it was full of bar and club suggestions for those interested in going out after on Friday or Saturday after the reception.
Love, The Mrs.
