When planning a wedding, there are so many details to cover! But you wouldn’t believe…planning a vow-renewal is just as detailed! And this little stationery detail is one that is fun, functional, and informative! It’s a “welcome fan”! The Mother-in-law placed these unique paper fans into the welcome bags that were given to all of their out-of-town guests. Having this “fan” was super thoughtful of her because the event was in the heat of summer down south, in Georgia. So, while guests toured the beautiful city of Atlanta and surrounding areas, they were able to stay somewhat “cool”! This “fan” featured important information, as well as a custom hand-drawn map on the backside. Information that was included were the vow-renewal weekend events such as the Welcome Dinner, Vow Renewal, Reception, and Farewell Brunch. Other info included was a personal list of “favorite things to see and do” in Alpharetta, Roswell, and Atlanta. The list included cool places to eat and drink, popular shopping areas, antique stores, golf courses, parks, farmer’s markets, and museums…like the renowned High Museum of Art.
Your welcome bags should be filled with other fun goodies too! Fill them with local goodies such as staple items popular to the area…whether it be food items (snacks), beverage, small gift item(s), or a city souvenir like a cute magnet! Personalize the bags with customized favor tags with each of the guest’s names on it! It’s all in the details! Make it fun!
This welcome fan was one of many stationery items designed for my client. Stay tuned, as I will be featuring her beautiful Vow-Renewal Invitation! She fell in love with our Julie Collection Invitation but wanted it tweaked to accommodate some enclosure cards. Can’t wait to share it with you!
