New Krewe

Customized welcome bags are the perfect way to greet guests to your New Orleans wedding

Weeks after the Mardi Gras glitter and beads have been stored away, a new krewe is busy at work preparing for wedding season. Kelsey Petry is the founder and owner of I Do Krewe, a business she says is “designed to provide turnkey service to curate, assemble and deliver unique wedding welcome bags to hotels and venue across New Orleans.”

Welcome bags for family and friends are the perfect way to kick off a wedding weekend and introduce your out of town guests to New Orleans. Petry recognized this importance and started the I Do Krewe after planning her own wedding two years ago. Today, brides and grooms can purchase an I Do Krewe welcome bag filled with local goods like Zapp’s chips, Crystal hot sauce, Mardi Gras beads and decorative keepsakes to be waiting for guests before you say I Do.

We caught up with Petry via email to get the scoop on the company’s offerings.
