Color Schemes for Wedding Welcome Bags

Here are a few of our favorite color combinations for wedding welcome tote bags.  There are so many fun ways to play with color in your welcome gifts.  You can mix and match colors on your totes and coordinate them with your ribbons and packaging.  We love the patriotic feel of navy and red, the beach vibe from our turquoise and pink colors, and the simple elegance of light grey and gold.  If you have a hard time visualizing how colors will work together we will always provide proofs of your totes.  We can even send a few proofs with different color combinations before you purchase. 

Have fun browsing some of our favorites!

4.  Your welcome gifts will ship from us or from our lovely vendors. 

If you want to use our welcome gifts as wedding favors at your reception, go for it!!  If you only need a few more items to top off your welcome packages, by all means, grab a few things.  There are no rules - except minimums, there are minimums.  So make sure you check those out on each product page.  And if you are completely overwhelmed, we get it!  Wedding planning is a lot of work and takes a lot of time.  We are here to simplify your welcome package process and would love to ease any anxiety, questions, concerns, that you may have.  If you have an idea of what you want, but would like to see how it all works together we are happy to mock up a few photos or mood boards so you can get a better visual on how everything comes together.  Contact us for design ideas or with any questions.

How To Make Your Own DIY Bohemian Headband

Here's how to stitch up your own Bohemian style headband, great for any wedding gift.

Materials:

  1. Styled ribbon.  The ribbon I used was 1" wide.  You could also use two thinner ribbons or an even thicker ribbon - you're the designer, you choose!  Check out the ribbons, trims, home dec sections of your local sewing shops to find different materials you can use as headbands.  I also had fun playing with gimp for double stranded headbands.
  2. 5/8" solid color trim.
  3. 3/8" elastic.
  4. Coordinating thread.

 

DIY Bohemian Headband For Wedding

Step 1: Cut your ribbon 17" long.

Step 2: Cut a piece of elastic 4" long.

Step 3: Cut your trim 3x the width of your ribbon so you can fold-over both sides.  **Note - to prevent fraying burn each end of your trim.

Step 4: Place your ribbon on one long side of your trim.  Place your elastic on the other side.  The ends should overlap the center of your trim slightly.

Step 5: Fold over one side of your trim.

Step 7: Pin everything together.  You can pin the ribbon to the trim and the elastic to the trim separately to prevent shifting.

Step 8: Stitch the ribbon to the trim.  Make sure your thread matches your trim so you won't see it.

Step 9: Stitch the elastic to the trim.

Step 10: Repeat Steps 3 - 9 for the other side of the headband.  At Step 7 try on your headband (careful of the pins!) make sure it fits the way you want it to.  Now is the time to adjust your elastic placement to make it fit tighter or looser.
