Elegant Oceanside Destination Wedding Custom Welcome Gifts

FILED IN: Custom Gift Designs, Wedding Welcome Gifts

Guests enjoyed a wedding welcome box filled with luxury treats and an elegant style for this California wedding. For their destination wedding in California, the couple wanted their guests to receive custom wedding welcome gifts filled with items their guests were sure to enjoy. It was also important that the welcome gifts that we designed for their guests incorporated design elements from their oceanside wedding venue at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach in Dana Point, California.

Our goal with these black, ivory and gold custom wedding welcome gifts was to design a gift that would give guests a beautiful first impression of their formal wedding and help to celebrate their oceanside location. Since this was a destination wedding, all of their guests traveled to enjoy a weekend of wedding-related festivities in California. It was important to the couple that their welcome gift boxes greeted each guest at their hotel check-in and included useful items that their guests could consume and enjoy throughout their weekend stay.

The couple’s wedding was planned to overlook the ocean and included an ornate style with Italian vibes. Picture luscious bouquets of large white flowers, champagne-colored bridesmaid dresses blowing in the seaside wind, and gold accents for their formal wedding. To compliment their wedding’s black-tie style, we custom designed their welcome gifts in a matching color palette of shades of white and ivory with strong gold accents and a pop of black to tie the gifts together.

Custom California Oceanside Wedding Welcome Gifts

With a white and ivory color base, these sophisticated custom wedding welcome gifts were designed with gold and black accents to exude the luxurious feel for their destination wedding in California. The formal ivory keepsake gift box was filled with useful gift items, snacks, and treats for the guests to enjoy over the destination wedding weekend. 

To match the wedding’s location, we included a California themed travel size tin candle accompanied by a custom linen foiled matchbox. For a personalized sweet treat, a custom-designed cookie was included with the couple’s wedding monogram. A package of kettle corn packed a savory snack and was finished with a custom gold wax seal with their wedding monogram. A jar of California gourmet toasted cashews provided another snack for the long weekend. Two luxury natural spring alkaline waters in beautiful glass bottles with gold accents rounded out the gift contents.

Tied with a chic black bow and finished with a monogram gift tag, guests were greeted with these luxury gift items as they checked into the resort for the destination wedding weekend in California. A personalized note from the couple accompanied the gift boxes, lending to an overall beautiful presentation of a wedding welcome gift in lieu of favors that guests thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish throughout the weekend.

Let’s unbox the custom wedding welcome gifts with an elegant theme that we curated for this destination wedding in California.
