The Idea Behind Our Company
The Welcome Bag Co. originated from our own experience as bride and groom-to-be in 2002. We wanted to express our gratitude to our family & friends who traveled vast distances to attend our wedding. In addition to presenting wedding favors at our reception, we placed personalized welcome bags in each of our guest's hotel rooms as a symbol of our appreciation. These gift bags were filled with refreshing snacks & drinks, directions to events, local maps, entertainment guides, and Colorado “high altitude” reminders (sunscreen & lots of water) that could be enjoyed throughout their stay. Our guests absolutely loved their warm welcome and we heard appreciative feedback about them for months after our wedding.
However, what we thought was going to be a simple gift-giving process actually took a tremendous amount of time, planning and effort and created some extra stress during an already busy time. Finding elegant & personalized gift packaging materials that coordinated with our wedding and that were also affordable seemed nearly impossible and took us to dozens of stores. We launched The Welcome Bag Company LLC shortly after this experience.
Our mission is to help event planners, corporations, hostesses, and brides & grooms save energy, time, and costs by providing one-stop shopping with outstanding products, elegant designs, and exceptional service. More importantly, we want to help our customers show their appreciation and gratitude for the special people in their lives.
We hope you enjoy our products. Best wishes to you!
