I was not originally going to do this, but I came across an idea that I loved SO…now I am doing out of town guest bags. However, how many do I make? Is the protocol to give one out to each person that checks into the hotel, or make one for each room? I don’t want to not make enough!

We did one per room because the hotel would have charged us extra to specify 2 bags for room A vs. 1 for room B

We did one bag per couple per room.
So if two couples were sharing a 2 bedroom condo they got two bags. But if there was just one couple in a room then they got one bag.
Although, I did provide a bag for each older kid, too. So my 15 year old niece got a bag as well as her mom (my sister).

@soyjoy222: May I ask what the idea is for goodie bags that you love? I am not really looking forward to making these and could use some inspiration LOL.

1 bag per couple and an additional bag if they have kids. While I’m not having kids at thewedding I’m sure some of my relatives will bring them to Vegas and make a vacation out of it so I’ll be doing a few kids bags.

@Alleycat: same here – not looking forward to it. What is everyone putting in these bags?

What to include: If the hotel doesn’t provide water in the room, a bottle or two is always good. Some small snacks, maybe fruit, gum. Maps are important- to the ceremony/reception. Cell phone numbers for bride/groom/ other family members. If they’re invited to rehearsal dinner/post-breakfast, information about that. Info on transportation/attractions/restaurants in the area. Another nice touch is something local- we’re getting married in Baltimore, so we’ll probably include small sample packs of Old Bay and local potato chips.
To me, the point of these is to make it easy for guests who may have never been to your city to get around as easy as possible- you don’t have to spend a lot of money for it to be nice- in this case, it really is the thought that counts.
