The Welcome Bag Committee

Wedding planner pro Jordan Payne’s brand new biz has curated wedding and event gifts in the bag—literally!

Beach amore. Fanciful whimsy. Wintertide affair. The pineapple freak. There’s one thing all these sweet little descriptions have in common: Introducing The Welcome Bag Committee, a company with a brand new bag—for every occasion! For years, wedding planner pro Jordan Payne observed her brides panicking at the last second when they realized they didn’t order or prepare welcome bags for their guests. After carefully planning and thoughtfully curating an elite bevy of bags to offer, Jordan has unveiled this adorably chic company that churns out stylish welcome bags on the reg for weddings, events and more. And it’s all laced with the planner’s signature energetic and colorful style.

Welcome bags and customized gifting are an incredibly special way to surprise guests who have traveled both near and far for the wedding weekend. The Welcome Bag Committee currently offers styled collections, which are pre-designed welcome bags and boxes that focus on some of the most popular wedding themes. For instance, upcoming nuptials could call on the beautiful Sensational Spring bag—it’s a sweet floral-print tote packed with treats like gourmet lavender jelly, hibiscus rosehip herbal tea and organic honey lip balm. Or pump up the party factor with the charming Chichi Whimsical bag. It comes with a transparent confetti-filled tote, crunchy popcorn, cotton candy marshmallows, a Dylan’s candy bar, luxury bar soap and more.

Jordan’s additional designs include the “Will you be my…” line of gifts that are the perfect way to ask friends or family to be a part of your special day. (Um, we can’t get enough of the pretty pink “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” bag. Rose quartz shimmer water, a bath bomb, peony body polish, a sleep mask and sweets? Yes, please!)

Weddings aren’t the only type of event that deserves these upscale offerings. There’s a whole selection of dreamy designs for any type of event or special occasion. The Waterflower Awakening features a beautiful watercolor-style, floral-print zipper pouch, filled with pina colada flavored chocolate, jasmine hand cream, Tokyomilk eau de parfum and a carry-on cocktail kit for transforming those in-flight bevvies. And the men are included, too, like The Guy’s Guy design that features a multi-purpose travel pouch, trout flask, a manicure set and some RAD whiskey stones.

Jordan truly thought of everything, including a custom gifting option for clients who want a little of this and a bit of that. You can choose from the entire assortment of bags and goodies like barware, stationery, sleep accessories, candles, teas, sweets and more to mix and match for the ultimate, bespoke gift.

And the icing on the cake? Giving back is very important to Jordan, so a portion of each sale benefits charities like St. Jude’s, SPCA and Wounded Warrior Project. So not only do clients get fabulously designed gifts, but they’re supporting a good cause, too. It’s all in the bag at The Welcome Bag Committee!
