One of the best ways to add a personal touch to your wedding day (and truly greet your guests in style!) is with custom welcome bags including all of your local favorites. While staples like bottled water, gum and Advil are always great (and much appreciated), there is nothing quite like showing your guests some unique and amazing locally made products that say “Welcome to Minnesota” in the very best way possible! Check out some of our favorite MN products featured from our recent shoot with Minnesota Bride Magazine!


The crazy talented Julie Chaet of Champagne Press designs stunning custom invitations, escort cards and programs for your big day… but did you know she can also create artwork for tote bags and matching itineraries for your wedding weekend?! Your perfect color palette and theme can be carried through every last pretty detail! (www.champagnepress.com)


From glassware and coffee mugs to hats and hoodies, Sota Clothing has the coolest Minnesota branded goods around. Drinks are guaranteed to taste 10 times better out of their Sota pint glasses, and your guests will think of you when they see that MN logo in their kitchen cabinet every day!

Made right here in Minneapolis, The Thymes has an unbelievable selection of products and scent lines to choose from! We love the light breeziness of their Aqua Coraline goodies– it’s the perfect scent for a Minnesota summer. (www.thymes.com)


It’s pretty much a guarantee that your guests have never seen anything quite like the Concrete Pig’s amazing work! Individually hand poured by Keith Wyman (the Concrete Pig himself), his MN shaped concrete coasters are not only ridiculously cool, but are a functional piece of art as well. (www.concretepig.com)


Cori Robinson of the Cookie Creative just might be one of the most talented bakers we’ve ever worked with. Her custom cookies are true works of art, and she can match any color scheme and theme you can imagine! The cookies look way too beautiful to eat, but trust us, they taste even better than they look (not sure how that’s even possible?!)… Your guests will be blown away and truly delighted by these little wonders!

Minnesota has definitely put itself on the map as one of the largest craft brew destinations in the country! Treat your guests to one of the great local brews the Twin Cities have to offer, like the “Big Island Blonde Ale” from Excelsior Brewing (bonus points if your guests know which of our 10,000 lakes Big Island is on!).
