Wedding Wednesday: Out-of-Town Boxes

A little late, but it’s Wedding Wednesday and I’ve got some wedding inspiration to share! I absolutely loved our out-of-town boxes and so did our guests! We wrote a sweet note and added some of our favorite goodes (potato chips, trail mix, candy, mints, crackers, and Easter candy)! I seriously wish I had an excuse to make these again! Such a fun and easy project!

There’s so much you can do to customize this project! You can really get creative!!

Here are some of my favorite welcome bags from around the web:

OOT Bag-1

Simple but chic! I love that there’s not too much in this bag, but the stuff that is, is sure to excite any guest!

OOT Bag-2

Another brown paper bag, but hardly shabby! In-N-Out hat? AWESOME.

OOT Bag-3

I LOVE when everything coordinates. Seriously, makes my heart flutter! So classy.

OOT Bag-5

Simple, but sweet! And healthy!

OOT Bag-6

My fave! Colorful and festive.

OOT Bag-7

Very fancy, but makes a lasting impression, for sure!

OOT Bag-8

Paper suitcases? I didn’t even know such a thing existed!

OOT Bag-9

Personalized is ALWAYS better.

OOT Bag-10

It might have something to do with my love for pellegrino, but, this is too cute!

OOT Bag-11

Banana bread and honey butter? My hubby would LOVE this welcome 🙂

OOT Bag-12

Loving the packaging here!

There’s also these adorable bags from Mélangerie Inc. on Style Me Pretty! I love the idea of using the best local foods!

Are you making a welcome bag or basket for your wedding guests?

What are you planning to fill them with?

      Hi Kristin! I actually bought them from another bride via the classifieds on Weddingbee. She had ordered too many, and was trying to get rid of the last few. I’ve seen them sold online everywhere, though. Just search “gable boxes.” Good luck!
