A wedding welcome letter is a nice way to make your guests feel special and to ensure they are fully informed about your wedding celebrations.
For our wedding in France we placed a wedding welcome letter together with an out of town bag containing a bottle of local regional sparkling French wine and chocolates in each of our guests’ hotel room.
We organised and negotiated a special rate for all our guests to stay in the same hotel and the hotel staff very kindly placed the welcome letter and bag in each of our guests’ rooms prior to their arrival.
Our reason for having a wedding welcome letter was two-fold:
Firstly, we wanted our guests to know how incredibly touched and grateful we were that they had made such an effort to travel abroad to celebrate our wedding with us. We felt the welcome letter and small gifts was a nice way of doing this.
Secondly, the wedding welcome letter was a good way to ensure that our guests were fully informed about the three days of celebrations that we had lined up. It provided them with everything they needed to know about each event (e.g. where, when, how) so they didn’t have to worry about missing anything and could just relax knowing that everything was taken care of.
I would highly recommend putting together a wedding welcome letter. If your guests are staying in different hotels it may be a little more work to organise but still really worthwhile.
All our guests commented what a nice touch the wedding welcome letter and gifts were and felt it really set the tone for a fantastic weekend.

I have created a “Closed” Facebook Group where you can meet other couples getting married abroad and ask advice from all the fabulous wedding suppliers featured on my site.
You will be able to discuss your wedding plans, ask questions and get inspiration from other couples and from wedding suppliers.
It is a fun friendly group…and private… so your wedding plans won’t be exposed!
I’d love to have you part of it and can’t wait to meet you!
