Wedding Hotel Welcome Bags

Hi from our mini-honeymoon! Our wedding weekend is over and it truly was the absolute best weekend of our lives surrounded by and family and friends (who are like family). What a whirlwind! You all weren’t kidding when you said it FLIES by. I cannot wait to recap all of the details for you, but let’s start with the first recap, our welcome bags for our guests at the hotel! 

Our Wedding

Here’s a little glimpse of our day thanks to B-Freed Weddings!


 I am so excited to share with you details from our wedding weekend, and to start, I thought I’d show you what went into our hotel welcome bags! Often wedding bags are made up of some snacks and things, so rather than buying junky items, I wanted to compile some of my absolute favorite goodies for our friends and family who came into town.

What’s inside: 

  1. Wedding Map: My amazingly talented friend Jen, from Love Always Cards made our wedding map with highlights from where we met, to our year long distance, then our first apartment, and our home. She also added our welcome dinner, our wedding venue, and our farewell brunch! I am SO in love with this special touch. It makes such a cute framed item for the house, too!

  2. RXbars: I’ve talked about RXbars a TON on my social and blog, and knew they’d be a must in our welcome bags!

  3. Jackson’s Honest Chips: A salty snack needed to make it’s appearance in our welcome bags, and everyone loves a good chip! This is my absolute favorite brand. Ingredients? Potatoes, Coconut Oil, and Sea Salt! No junky oils here, and so beyond delicious. 

  4. Wine Wipes: I heard about these recently and just thought it was SUCH a cute and  fun idea. You know when your teeth get stained from red wine? No more with wine wipes! I know I’ll be keeping these in my purse from now on.

  5. VerMintsEver since I picked up a package of VerMints at my local Whole Foods Market, I’ve been hooked. I always have them with me. I used to avoid any types of mints because they’re so obviously filled with added junk. Not these! 

  6. Eating Evolved Chocolates: Coconut butter cups in flavors like mint and caramel. So. Good. I wanted some sort of chocolate-y goodness, and love my friends over at Eating Evolved and their chocolates (they’re from Long Island- where I grew up, too)!

  7. Simply GumGum has been another one on my ‘not worth it’ list. Added junk, sugars, and chemicals are not my thing! I love Simply Gum because it’s made with real, good ingredients, and lasts just like conventional gum!

  8. Drink Maple WaterWhen the hangover hits, electrolytes and hydrating are a necessity. Instead of traditional bottles of water, I opted for bottles of  Drink Maple. It’s a delicious alternative to traditional water that is naturally hydrating, with just a hint of maple, and is packed with nutrients. Plus, they’re local to me– in Massachusetts!

  9. Advil PacketsFor the hangover 😉

  10. The Bags // The Labels // Ribbon: Pure Color Expressions in Champagne from AC Moore.

I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love!

  6. Love this!! How lucky were your guests to get all of these goodies?! RXbars are my fav! I haven’t tried the chips though…I need to check them out!

  7. Lexi your attention to detail on your wedding day was beyond impressive !!! This is such a great idea, I never see the other end of the spectrum!

  8. These bags are absolutely adorable, and your wedding map even more so! I have never thought of the idea to map out from when you met to your wedding, but it’s brilliant. Also, you included so many items I have yet to try, especially the maple water and Eating Evolved chocolate.

  9. Love all of these ideas! Getting married soon myself on the Cape so will definitely have to consider some of these products for our welcoming bag 🙂

  10. Congratulations! What a great idea for a goody bag! This idea could be used for a number of special events. The coconut butter cups look amazing!

  11. Congrats! Love the bags, especially the map (I grew up just outside of Boston but haven’t lived there in six years or even been back in almost two years and have been feeling so homesick this summer)

  12. The wedding map idea is incredible! I love it so much. You should frame a copy of the map to hang inside your house. It’s so special 😉

  13. Congrats, Lexi! Your bags are so practical and nourishing and the map is something I’ve never seen before! It’s great to hear your weekend was phenomenal 🙂

  14. Lexi, I so enjoy following your Instagram account and have made several of your recipes on several occasions.

    Congratulations on your marriage and best wishes for a healthy and happy one that will last forever.

  15. These are the greatest hotel wedding welcome bags I have ever seen! Usually I just keep the water and have to give away everything else, but this would have been amazing to receive when checking in. These products are definitely something I’d love to do one day for myself!

  16. I live in the Boston area too! I just had my third baby and am trying to get back to my Whole 30 lifestyle, and am loving all these new snack ideas!

  17. Congrats on your wedding! I live in the metrowest area too!. 🙂 I just had my third baby and am trying I get back to a whole 30/clean eating lifestyle but it’s hard to find time to meal prep. I am loving all these snack ideas!!

  18. What a great idea! Especially a healthy alternative! I make welcome bags for family reunion each year and look forward to using these ideas! Especially for family members who are on a healthy life track. (Might even inspire some of the others!) Thanks for the share.

  19. I absolutely love this idea! Usually welcome bags are filled with total junk that just goes to waste. Congrats on your wedding!

  20. This is so awesome! I have seen lots of junk in goodie bags before so seeing this is so refreshing and different! You can feel good about the things you are giving your loved ones and you are showing your lifestyle with all of these awesome treats which i think is really cool! You may even help someone make better choices in the future by showing them what’s out there in the food world! I love it!!!!

  21. I had a huge comment written before but I’m not sure if it posted soooooo second times the charm! Haha these goodie bags are great! It’s different from the norm and kind of sheds light into your lifestyle. It’s great that you can feel good about the things you are giving to your guests and you may even help people see what’s really out there in the world of food, and help them make better choices in the future! I love it!!!!

  22. What a thoughtful welcome for your guests! I can’t think of a wedding I’ve been to where I wasn’t searching for Advil the next day. I imagine Pure Maple would work well for that, too! Congratulations on your marriage!

  23. Congrats on your wedding! Thanks so much for offering to share one of your hotel welcome bags with us. Such great treats inside. Best wishes to you both!

  24. Lexi! Your wedding sounds absolutely wonderful! I’m so happy for you and your husband. The best years are yet to come! I also loved the idea for the welcome bags. So creative and cute!

  25. Congrats on your marriage! I just found your blog from Fed & Fit podcast (I just listened to the one you were on and started following!). The wedding guest bags are super cute!! And that Eating Evolved bar looks so good!!
