Having the people that you love surround you on your wedding day is what makes it so special, so be sure to properly welcome your out-of-town guests with the perfect welcome kit. Upon their arrival to Niagara-on-the-Lake, make sure your wedding guests have a charming basket of goodies that will encourage them to explore, taste and experience all that the region has to offer.
Highlight Niagara’s Best Attractions
If your guests are coming to stay in Niagara for a few days, ensure they know where to visit and all they can see in the heart of wine country. In their welcome kits, place brochures for local winery tours, attractive boutiques and landmarks. Because you don’t know exactly what every guest will be interested in, be sure to include a wide variety of locations they can visit, so everyone finds something that strikes their interest.
Encourage guests to take part in a Trolley Wine Tour or, if they’d prefer to design their own tour, type up a list of some of the area’s best wineries, cideries and breweries where they will be able to taste a wide array of Niagara’s well-crafted beverages.
In case you have history buffs on your wedding list, you can also include a sneak preview of Fort George National Historic Site, Queenston Heights, the Laura Secord Homestead and many of the area’s other museums and heritage sites.
Let Them Sample Niagara with your Wedding Welcome Kit
You’ve chosen to host your wedding in Niagara because you recognize it’s a truly special place. Help your guests see all the area has to offer by including samples of wine or other regional treats they’ll love.
Niagara is full of local artisans who are celebrated for their craftsmanship. There are plenty of gift shops you and your spouse can visit before your guests arrive for the wedding to choose from artistic gifts, candies, jams and other affordable treats that you can place in your wedding guests’ welcome baskets. In addition to these special items, it may also be a good idea to include wedding day essentials such as a bottle of water, mints and tissues – just in case your vows bring them to tears.
Here are a few of our favourite local vendors:
- Chocolate FX
- Chateaux Des Charmes
- Greaves Jams
- Neob Niagara
- Willow Cakes & Pastries
