Here in the Berkshires, we see more than our fair share of destination weddings. Whether you are coming for the majestic mountain views, the historic estates, or one of our many rustic barns, your guest are sure to find delight in the breathtaking scenery and slower pace that make our quaint little towns a respite from the high energy of city life. There's no sweeter way to introduce them to the area and welcome them to your wedding than with a basket filled with local and personal favorites. 

When planning your welcome baskets, we recommend drawing inspiration from your surroundings. Choose a container that will complement your theme be it a rustic straw basket or an elegant lacquered tray. Start with something to drink as well as a little snack to keep rumbling tummies at bay. We recommend adding some local delicacies such as delicious chocolates or pastries to satisfy the late night sweet tooth. Include a handful of brochures highlighting the local attractions for those guests that may want to explore before your wedding ceremony. You can even personalize a map detailing all the fun places you recommend they visit. 

Some other necessities would be your weekend itinerary detailing the time and location of each event. A trolley or bus schedule if you are chauffeuring your guests from place to place. The contact information of your wedding planner to field any questions about the weekend's activities or suggest a local salon. And of course, aspirin and a "do not disturb" sign so they can recover from a wonderful night celebrating the happy couple!

We love destination weddings and being able to show off all our beloved Berkshires has to offer! Schedule your showroom visit today and let us show you how we can make your wedding everything you dreamed of and have your guests thanking your for the perfect weekend getaway.
