Xenia, or in its English translation, “guest-friend relationship,” is the Ancient Greek concept of hospitality, generosity, and courtesy shown to those who are far away from home and or associates of the person bestowing the guest-friend relationship. This type of hospitality was very unusual and distinctive as strangers were greeted, treated, and showered with gifts upon their arrival at a new place. However, it is believed that fear of the gods, rather than pure decency, was the underlying cause of hosts’ exceptional treatment of their guests. Since hosts had no way of knowing who their visitors were, they were forced to treat every guest as if they were a god.
Now, we all know Zeus is not going to show up to your wedding disguised as a mortal to test your hospitality. The point is that, similar to xenia, hosts of weddings or any other event should go above-and-beyond to create an unforgettable first impression with their event guests. Ordering pre-filled wedding welcome bags for out-of-town guests to receive at hotel check-in embodies this concept. Not only are wedding welcome bags a perfect way to express your gratitude and exhibit your warm hospitality to guests, but soon you will realize that guests find them surprisingly useful too. Here is our top five instances you will catch your guests thanking you for their wedding welcome bags.
Boarding pass… Check. ID… Check. Snacks… Snacks?

Can you think of a better way to spend a layover or Uber ride to the airport than munching down the local flavor snacks inside your pre-filled, wedding welcome bag? Go ahead, we will wait.

Weddings are times of celebration with the ones we love and care for most; there is no better example of this than the wedding reception after-party.

Which is why providing your attendees with personalized snacks inside their welcome bags to soak up their liquid mistakes will leave your wedding guests forever indebted to you.
The goal of most ceremonies is to provide wedding guests with a warm, unique, and stress-free experience. Is that possible? Yes, but it demands the host’s diligence and ambition.
