I think youve covered all the basics and the coffee is a great little extra touch. There are so many things you can add however. Is there any kids comming to the wedding?

I think all those ideas sound cute! 

If you want to add personal touches, you could always personalize one or more of the items. For my friend’s destination wedding, they had personalized labels on the water bottles & everyone thought it was so cool. You could easily make those yourself. If you want to personalize the bag itself, you could always just tie on a tag. They sell pretty ribbon at the dollar store if you’re on a budget & I find it makes a big difference.

I love the coffee & chocolate ideas especially 🙂

Safety Pins!!!! They are always a wedding essential because you just never know when a bra strap is going to break or a neckline will need to be altered at the last second.

I would add a “shout wipe” or a tide-to-go stick (the shout wipe are cheaper since you can buy a box of wipes and just put an individual wipe in each bag) – for any spills on fancy clothes.

I also second the idea pf personalizing the water bottles.  You can buy “sticker paper” (paper you can run through your printer) at Office Max or Staples and then cut it to the appropriate size and slap ’em on your water bottles.  Will cost a minimal amount and goes a LOOOONG way in making the bag personal!

sounds good! and i second sunscreen or chapstick – i included those in my welcome bags and they were super cheap to get travel size ones at the dollar store and target.

@lauramich:  Target and Walmart sell travel sized mini sunscreens for about $1.50 each.
