What should I put into a welcome package for my wedding guests who are coming from overseas?April 26, 2012 4:20 am at 4:20 am #1099173oomisParticipant
Definitely include the following:
some type of snack (nosh, fruit, pretzels, mints) clear directions to the shul (auf ruf) and/or your home, as well as a hand-drawn map to the homes where they will be sleeping, with all street names clearly marked. Maybe a Jewish magazine or paper, some type of reading material.
It’s nice to write a poem or nice note of welcome to them.
These are just a few items that come to mind.April 26, 2012 10:03 am at 10:03 am #1099174YW Moderator-42Moderator
A bottle of whiskey.
A full Artscroll Shas (or at least a set of pocketsized Kehati Mishnayos).
A bag of potato chips.

Speaking from a guest’s point of view – If I would ever find Advil in my welcome package, it would make me wonder if there’s something about the caterer that I don’t know about but should!September 6, 2015 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #1099180👑RebYidd23Participant
