I love recieving wedding gift bags at the hotel.  There's no better way to show hospitality to your guests for traveling a long way for your special day.  However, whenever I see the magazines with inspiration it all looks really expensive!  Let's face it, by the guest bag stage of planning, there's not a ton of funds left for most brides!  My sister in-law Jenn always thinks of everything and I thought she hit her guest bags out of the park!  

Jenn printed a monogram logo from onto stickers and placed them on plain bags.  Great cost effective way to personalize something you can buy in bulk! 

She also included a custom coozie and local treats to represent Charleston:  Cheer Wine, Pecan Cookies, Sweet Tea Vodka

Jenn created an itinerary and a list of things to do in Charleston to help everyone maximize thier weekend. She used a vendor on Etsy to lay everything out for her in a professional way.  It was really cost effective to find someone on Etsy vs. using a stationary store.  Jenn still raves about Sara from Simply Modern Designs.

For the wedding party, Jenn laid out a timeline of events for the weekend (with pictures!).  As a professional bridesmaid, I know there is always a lot of confusion on where to be and when.  There's always a few in every wedding party that need extra hand-holding.

 Check out Jenn's blog for all of her stationary/signage ideas she had for her big day.

I'd love to hear about any great gift bags you've recieved!  Sometimes it is tricky to find signature treats for your city - feel free to reach out to our community in the comments for help!
