We did out of town bags with all kinds of local stuff.

If you can do local snacks, that would be cute.  We were married in Vermont, so did local made maple pretzels.  We also included some Woodchuck cider that is made a few towns over and some Lake Champlain chocolates.  I would try to do everything as local as possible, I think it’s cute and people appreciate it.  Especially with only 20, you can definitley make them special.  A map of the area is a good idea as well as any hiking trails/ things to do for the weekend.

@HourThyme:  if you email Garrett’s they will get you in contact with a salesperson and I ended up with a way better deal than they showed online by stuffing my own bags and getting large bags of popcorn instead of tins!

@bprice1129:  Oh, wow. Thanks for the tip! The prices on the Garrett’s wedding page are kind of nutzo. Too bad nobody’s returned my request for an email/phone wedding sales consultation…
