Ideas for Las Vegas Themed Welcome Bags

It goes without saying that Las Vegas is a destination wedding town – most of our clients are coming from all over the country and world and even planning some extravagant affairs.  A common statement is that they want their guests to have fun and enjoy their time here since it is also a vacation. Common questions we get are “what should we put in our Las Vegas themed welcome bags?”.  Here are some of my ideas:

  • A nice welcome note handwritten by you
  • Since your guests will likely be here for a few days, it would be nice to put an itinerary in the welcome bags (it may be redundant if this is already on your wedding website but hopefully people will not be too connected while away on vacation!)
  • Lotion – It’s an extremely dry climate here
  • Eye drops – Again, it’s very dry here and your guests will be thankful
  • Poker chip – yes, a real one
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglassses
  • Chapstick
  • If you’re hired a local wedding planner, ask her for some restaurant, show, and activity suggestions
  • Aspirin
  • Mints
  • Mini fan
  • Starbucks gift card
  • Bottles of water to ensure they stay hydrated
  • A few small bags of snacks
  • Shot glass souvenir
  • Splits of Champagne, sparkling wine, and/or apple cider
  • If feasible, a custom designed map by Laura Hooper is a nice added touch:

Place all items in a bag with the Las Vegas skyline (they didn’t have an example for Las Vegas but you get the picture):

  1. Thank you for posting this list! I have been trying to come up with interesting bag items for our handful of guests. I am going to buy some aluminum bottles for them to carry during their few days out there plus happy for my green family and friends 🙂

  2. Becca: I love your aluminum bottle idea for going green.

    I attended a wedding out of town and when I checked into my room, I was so excited to see a welcome bag filled with yummy treats for me and my husband. It made me feel loved!
