Wedding Welcome Gifts
We're the Santa Barbara Company, a women-owned, green-certified, multigenerational family business located on California's beautiful Central Coast.
We believe that gifts should contribute to the kind of world we all want to live in. Our approach to gifting supports small businesses, our local community, and ethical producers worldwide, and we're so excited that you found us. We think that we are going to love working together.
On your wedding day, you'll be so busy as the center of attention that it's impossible to give every one of your guests the personal attention they deserve. They've blocked off their calendars to come share your special day and we totally get how hard it can be to make them feel valued without heaping more onto your already full plate! You may be busy, but you have a heart of gold and are determined to deliver an amazing wedding experience for your guests! If this sounds like you, then you're in the right place. We are here to help you deliver an incredible experience to your guests with a welcome gift that shows them how much they matter. Let us handle the hard work and keep it completely stress-free for you! We will coordinate with hotel staff to have it waiting for them in their hotel rooms or ready to snag at your welcome party. Keep them hydrated, nourished, and ready to enjoy everything you have planned for them!

We absolutely LOVED having Santa Barbara Company coordinate our welcome gifts for our out of town guests. Being from Michigan, it was really important to me that my friends and family had a little taste of Santa Barbara (no pun intended!) Caroline was helpful and worked great with our wedding coordinator. They came in these burlap bags that were perfect— I still use them as little lunch boxes or mini grocery bags. Thank you so much Santa Barbara company for bringing your sunshine to our wedding weekend! Katie & John
“The welcome baskets that we had designed by Caroline and her team at Santa Barbara Company for our wedding were nothing less than perfect. We couldn’t be more grateful for having had the opportunity to work with Santa Barbara Company and we look forward to doing so again in the future. Also, make sure to have them include the sea salt caramels in any gift. We were getting comments about how much people loved those for weeks after our wedding!” David & Rachel
I was the maid of honor in my sister's wedding last fall in Los Olivos and I wanted to make sure her welcome bags were memorable, unique, delicious, beautiful, special and local... Ultimately, we landed on the most perfect welcome bags filled with unreal popcorn (garlic and rosemary), heavenly salted caramels and chocolate bars that even the "I don't love sweets" kind of people couldn't stop raving about.
