NYC Themed Goodies


Many of our couples pick NYC as a destination for their wedding, flying in from all over the US to celebrate their special day in the Big Apple. Others are local to the Tri-State area and so choose the city that never sleeps as the location for their upcoming nuptials. Regardless of which category you fall under, New York City is undeniably a truly magical place to get married. We love it when our couples choose to incorporate themed goodies into their guest welcome bags, as even an edible snack or a simple souvenir of the city can make for one memorable gift! Here are our favorite NYC-themed welcome bag fillers:


Key Chains





Bottle Openers





Tote Bags (also great to use as the welcome bags themselves!)






Pre-stamped Postcards 





Tinned Mints 




Fifth Avenue Candy Bar




 Cookies
