I was really excited that our friends and family be all together after so long. I thought it would be a treat for them to check into the hotel after most of them flew to Philadelphia for the wedding. It is extremely common in the wedding industry that welcome bags are provided by the couple at the hotel I tried to cover all of our bases in terms of what people needed and bought most items in bulk to reduce costs.We got a lot of good feedback from our customers.
