Your bag sounds great so far! 

Could you include local some magazines?  In Houston there are several free magazines that you pick up at restaurants, etc.  They all include a calendar of events – that way your guests can find something to do while they are in town for your wedding.

Also think about including a list of local restaurants you and your FI love – that way your guests can dine and your favorite local places.

I second the magazines. We went to the Chamber of Commerce and got a visitor’s guide and tourist maps for free to put in  our OOT bags. Other ideas:

Arizona-made salsa and blue corn torilla chips

lip balm

Fairy Tale brownies

prickly pear syrup (for margaritas, lemonade or tea)

Saguaro blossom seeds? Or… a tiny little cactus? I love the prickly pear syrup idea!

Your bag sounds great! I would also try to include something that guests could do while they are spending downtime in their hotel room such as a lottery scratch off ticket or a deck of cards. 

Also, you may want to include an extra set of directions to your ceremony & reception locations and to other wedding events for these guests.  Many times guests don’t remember to bring the invitation or the original set of directions that you many have sent them.

I like the idea of adding salsa from Arizona… just keep in mind if people are flying out… I think salsa may count as “liquid” — can anyone confirm this?

It’d be cute if you could find a way to add a cactus or something
