Wedding welcome bags and gifts

A nice touch to a destination wedding is giving your friends and family a welcome gift bag. We do this all the time for our clients. We buy the items and put the bags together and deliver them to the hotels before check in. We really like the idea of using a custom canvas tote idea with the hand drawn Big Sur map…and Jamie’s husband, Andrew, can design and print them for you in his silkscreen studio. Here is an idea of a map of Tucson…


There is a local chocolatier in Carmel, Lula’s chocolates where you can buy sea salt caramels


A great local wine made in Carmel Valley, from Big Sur grown grapes



A Big Sur scented cabin spray from Juniper Ridge is a fun treat for guests to bring the scent home with them. Pricey, but perfect for small weddings or special getaways.



This soap by Big Sur Country Soap is made by a Big Sur local, and friend of ours, Sheila. The scents are powerful and wonderful. True Big Sur! We especially love the Mountain Man, Mud Bath and the Sea Kelp scents.



These hand painted leather monarch butterfly wing earrings make perfect bridemaids gifts! They are made by a Big Sur artist, Jill Gisler. She also does super cool hawk feathers. Buy them at Big Sur Garden Gallery.
