If you’re having a destination wedding or having guests travel, a lovely touch is a little wedding welcome bag left in their hotel for them. But if you’re not sure what to include in the wedding welcome bag, then here are some ideas for you.

Once you’ve traveled far and wide to finally set down in your hotel, what do you want? Comforts! Besides a quick nap, what else would pick you up after that long, arduous journey?
