There’s no better way to be greeted as a wedding guest than with a custom designed wedding welcome gift filled with useful gift items and fun theming. If you want to ‘wow’ your guests from the very start of your wedding weekend, unique wedding welcome gifts can help you do just that. Here at Marigold & Grey we love a good roundup of our top gifts, so today we're taking a look back at some of our most memorable custom wedding welcome gifts of the year.

Personalized for the couple and the wedding, custom wedding welcome gifts give wedding guests a peek into what the wedding weekend will look like. Our gift design experts work with couples and wedding planners to gather information about the wedding color palette, the wedding theme and the couple themselves. Using these details, we design wedding welcome gifts that are personalized and tell a story about the future newlyweds and their wedding. 

Whether you deliver the wedding welcome gifts at the rehearsal dinner, at a wedding welcome party, or in their hotel room for out-of-town guests or destination weddings in amazing locations, custom designed welcome gifts packed with useful and thoughtful items they can enjoy throughout the weekend as well as long after your wedding is over will create a memorable moment for your wedding guests that lasts a lifetime. It’s a sweet moment to make sure family and friends feel welcomed and appreciated!

At Marigold & Grey, we’ve been honored to work with so many couples on their custom wedding welcome gifts. Your wedding is more than just an event for you and your partner - it’s about the friends and family you’ll be sharing your special day with! Your celebration wouldn’t be the same without them so make sure this celebration welcomes them with open arms and a heartwarming wedding welcome gift.

With that, let’s take a look inside of our top custom wedding welcome gifts of the year.


Wedding guests were greeted to this Fire Island, New York wedding with custom wedding welcome gift sets featuring a fresh color palette and the couple's dog, Nala. Since their wedding location featured a unique icon from its destination, a lighthouse, we made sure to feature it within their welcome gifts. The wedding’s fresh color palette of white, beige and hints of greenery was a perfect choice for their custom welcome gifts.

Inside each custom wedding welcome gift were useful and memorable keepsake items themed to the wedding's location that their guests could bring home to enjoy after the weekend festivities were over including a set of lighthouse stone coasters featuring Fire Island, a “Great South Bay” Fire Island themed candle, a Long Island matchbook and a ‘Penny & Cooper’ sea foam hand cream.

Incorporating a custom designed golden retriever cookie to look like the couple’s dog was the perfect treat and a unique personalized touch to their gifts! We also made sure their guests enjoyed plenty of snacks from local New York based companies including a tea chocolate bar, two basil and lemon sparkling waters, and North Fork potato chips that were repackaged to feature a custom monogram wax seal for an additional personalized touch.


What more personalization could you ask for than a custom wedding welcome gift with the bride and groom’s portrait turned into an edible cookie included inside?! For their elegant wedding this couple wanted celebratory wedding welcome gifts to make a statement, and start the wedding weekend off in a fun way.

To match the elegant and luxurious tone for their big day, we sourced unique circular hat boxes and used the couple's monogram for a special touch of detail throughout. But, what took their custom gifts to the next level was that each gift was topped off with a personalized welcome note from the couple that we printed on a mirror, as well as a gift tag with their monogram printed on a mirror !

Inside the gorgeous welcome gifts with a black and taupe theme for guests was a set of four gourmet and custom designed personalized cookies to celebrate their wedding including one with the wedding date, one with a monogrammed bottle of champagne, one with a portrait of the groom, and one with a portrait of the bride. It was a sweet treat that felt like a piece of artwork, but also doubled as something for the guests to enjoy!



For their California destination wedding, this couple wanted to deliver elegant custom wedding welcome gifts with luxurious items their guests could enjoy. This Dana Point, California wedding was planned to include white flowers, champagne bridesmaid dresses and gold accents, which was a top priority to include in their welcome gift boxes. Their formal wedding would be overlooking the ocean with a fancy feeling and Italian vibes, so we wanted to re-create this feel within their custom wedding welcome gifts for guests.

These formal welcome gifts were inspired by the oceanside wedding’s design and filled with useful items and treats for guests including gourmet toasted cashews from a California based company, a custom cookie decorated with the couple's monogram, and kettle corn in a clear bag with a custom wax seal with their monogram for a touch of personalization. A keepsake gift of a California travel tin candle and custom matchbox with their monogram printed in gold foil was also included for guests to enjoy after the wedding weekend. Finally, two bottles of luxury natural spring waters were included for an elegant appeal and useful hydration!


For their culturally inspired wedding in Napa Valley, California, the couple wanted to delight their guests with custom wedding welcome gifts that didn’t feel like typical wedding guest gifts, or even basic gift boxes. Their wedding celebration was to include events by the pool, and a color palette of greens, pastels and ivory. The couple shares a passion for food and tea, which they wished to share with their guests for their wedding weekend and include in their gifts.

To meet their wedding welcome gifting goals, we designed unique luxurious gifts filled with locally sourced items, and items themed around the wedding's California wine country location. Chic ivory and spring moss green custom wedding welcome gifts included a California sunrise themed travel candle, a Napa-made chocolate golden milk bar, a dried Sanfordii flower bundle, a California made sour gummy bear candy treat, jasmine tea with a custom label, a satin amenity pouch, two basil and lemon flavored sparkling waters, a package of Napa-based organic rosemary almonds and pistachios, and a custom foil printed matchbox. The gifts were topped off with a welcome note from the couple and a custom wedding weekend itinerary with a watercolor print of Napa Valley.


With a wedding in Hydra, Greece, we went all-in on the beautiful blue hues and unique Greek design aesthetics for these custom wedding welcome gifts. For the couple’s destination wedding in the Mediterranean Sea, they wanted to celebrate the beautiful Greek locale for their wedding weekend and welcome guests with gifts that coordinated with the natural landscape textures, and colors of the city and seaside location.

We designed these Greece themed wedding welcome gifts around a custom cotton canvas tote bag featuring robe handles that was painted with a custom evil eye design in brilliant blue hues. A monogrammed gift tag with blue satin ribbon adorned each wedding welcome gift that also served as a beach bag for guests to use on their vacation.

Included inside the wedding welcome gift bags were gourmet gift items sourced from the local Greek islands including dark chocolate bites dipped in vanilla shell, a feta savory biscuit roll made with spinach and pumpkin seeds, and thyme honey with a wood honey dipper. We added a Turkish cotton beach towel, a custom amenity bag with SPF lip balm, after sun lotion, and two coconut oil wipes for guests to use during the destination wedding weekend, and save as keepsakes to take home. Each gift bag also included a wedding weekend itinerary booklet with a map and travel information.


These custom tropical themed wedding welcome gifts complemented the couple’s elegant Hawaiian destination wedding. It was important for the bride and groom that their welcome gifts included gift items that their guests would use and enjoy during their Hawaiian vacation. This isn’t your typical tropical print themed gift though! We sourced luxurious tote bags and gourmet gift items that exuded a tropical and elegant feel.

A chic jute tote bag was used to give the custom wedding welcome gifts a natural yet tropical inspired feel. We knew guests would appreciate a beautiful tote bag to use throughout their time in Hawaii, and again after they are home. Using the wedding’s color palette and location as inspiration, we sourced Hawaii themed gift items in a variety of green and white colors, including gourmet Hawaii-made espresso latte bites, Hawaiian coconut sea salt and exfoliating loofah soap, shortbread cookies filled with Hawaiian fruits, a microfiber beach towel with a chic tropical print, and a custom amenity kit packed with coconut hand cream and tropical lip balm.



These modern wedding welcome gifts were designed to deliver that ‘wow’ factor to guests at a Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina wedding designed and planned by Grit & Grace. For this couple, it was important that their custom wedding welcome gifts made their guests feel welcomed and part of the family.

This wedding design inspiration revolved around funky, modern and colorful decor while keeping things classy and exciting for guests. So we wanted to make sure to carry their overall wedding aesthetic through to their custom wedding welcome gift boxes.

With a modern color palette of black and pops of color in pink and green, we designed each wedding welcome gift to include a set of custom baseball hats embroidered with their wedding date and a palmetto tree as a nod to their South Carolina wedding location, a package of pimento cheese kettle chips, and custom cocktail kit including Bloody Mary cocktail mixer and tabasco hot sauce packaged in a drawstring pouch customized with a dog design.


These personalized wedding welcome gifts for a Colorado mountainside wedding helps tell the couple’s story. The couple met in Denver, share two dogs and call Michigan and Texas their home states, so it was important to share these details within their custom designed welcome gifts for their guests. The couple gave their welcome gifts to their guests who had traveled to their wedding from out of state, so incorporating the Colorado location was also important to them.

To reflect their wedding venue with a beautiful mountain view, and to coordinate with their wedding’s color palette of fall colors with a touch of dusty blue, we custom designed their wedding welcome gifts in an ivory, white and shades of blue theme, including a set of two mini custom decorated dog cookies, an altitude amenity kit packaged in a drawstring bag personalized with a mountain scape, super cocoa energy bars from a Michigan based company, two ginger lemon sparkling tonic waters, coconut caramels and savory vegan trail mix from Texas based companies, a wildflower themed soy wax tin candle, and custom foil printed matchbook.


We designed upscale custom welcome gift boxes for a New York City wedding with an elegant and timeless aesthetic. The couple’s NYC wedding was hosted at the romantic and iconic Rainbow Room. They wanted their wedding welcome gifts to set the tone for their wedding and exude an upscale feeling for each guest to experience from the very beginning of the wedding weekend.

Utilizing the wedding’s color palette of light blush, cream and gold, as well as the wedding's location in New York City, we designed custom wedding welcome gift boxes with a classic and romantic feel. Each gift wedding welcome set was packed with luxurious gift items inside, including an amenity kit in a luxe satin bag, a Voluspa brand lychee scented candle, a package of custom printed matches, a vintage watercolor print of New York, Girl Scout cookies in a clear bag personalized with a monogram wax seal, a package of sweet and salty popcorn, and two peach ginger flavor sparkling waters.


For their June wedding, this couple hoped to thrill their out of town guests with custom wedding welcome gifts that invited them to start the celebration off right! These cheerful welcome gift boxes were inspired by their gorgeous garden filled wedding venue as well as their wedding’s color palette of lighter blues.

We custom designed these organic inspired wedding welcome gifts with a white and blue color palette packed with goodies for wedding guests to enjoy and use, including a custom amenity kit in a chic satin drawstring bag with the couple's monogram filled with medicine and hydration packs, a set of two Levain Bakery chocolate chip cookies in a clear bag with a custom wax seal with their monogram, a blue and yellow bag of chocolate candies with a custom label, a mix of popcorn in a clear bag with a personalized label, a set of two calm and restore sparkling waters, and a half bottle of wine.
