Creative & Funny Wedding Welcome Bags & Favors

I’ll never forget the first time I went to a wedding and they had coozies as favors that read “To Have & To Hold & To Keep Your Beer Cold.” I thought it was the cutest little detail. It made me giggle, reflected the personality of the couple, and is something I still use today. Like most clever ideas, though, this saying got passed around the Internet and is relatively commonplace now at weddings. I still chuckle when I see it, but I decided I’d take a crack at coming up with some new ideas for creative personalizations for wedding welcome bags and favors.
