Other information can also be included such as wedding schedule, contact person and a location address for easy reference. A wedding party cannot be without a starter pack. Kick off your big day by serving a welcome drink conveniently inserted in the welcome bag. A great way is to give every guest a welcome cocktail complete with essential ingredients.
