The date is set, everyone booked their flights and you and your beloved family and friends are jetting to your tropical wedding destination – hooray! Now that they’ve made the trek to soak up some rays for your big day, how can you give them a big warm welcome to the weekend?
Well, Jordan Payne, the founder of Jordan Payne Events, thinks you should have a special gift waiting to…well, welcome them to your wedding! That’s why she launched The Welcome Bag Committee, a service that can both design and provide beautiful, stylish welcome bags for wedding guests. Her fun new venture has a whole range of designs for whatever your wedding style – and, best of all, they double as beautifully curated gifts for any other occasion you’re celebrating!
We may be a little biased but we’re head over heels in love with her tropical-leaning pieces, such as the Palm Envy Tote and the Palm Leaf Blush collection. Can you blame us? They fall right in line with our Palm Springs linen and our Beverly linen from the Solstice Collection! It’s no wonder that we didn’t even hesitate when Jordan dreamed up a styled shoot with pieces from both of our collections, just scroll through to see the magic come together!
Jordan set the table for this styled shoot with our Palm Springs linen, a bright printed linen from our Solstice Collection that has summer written all over it! This style can go for barefoot casual or be dressed up for oceanside glam, which is just the vibe we’re feeling from this design. The glassware, in shades of green, is elegant enough for rose or just right for a margarita – whatever your pick!
How about the floral arrangement? David Kimmel Flowers blew it out of the ocean on this one! Bright blooms in shades of fuchsia and orange were woven in with palm leaves and succulents for an elevated take on a beachside arrangement.
We can’t get enough of the Ceci New York stationery and menu cards! The invitation, with laser cut palm motifs, gold foiling and light wood accents sets the mood for what’s to come on the big day. And the menu card? Cut in the shape of a monstera palm leaf with delicate hand watercoloring, it’s beautiful enough to frame!
The absolute most fun thing to see come together on this shoot was the pairing of The Welcome Bag Committee’s tote bags against our linens. As if one wasn’t already fun enough, the two of them make for a sure-fire fantastic party. We think it’s the perfect way to, as Jordan puts it, “celebrate guests celebrating you!”
