    Maybe give them the sweets and the excercise band. Put a little note in it that the excercise will counter act the calories gained while eating cookies and wedding cake. I know I wouldn’t want a health kit for a gift…I would get a bit depressed about my weight. So if you make it kind of silly and combine them, it might make your mom happy and still show your passion.

    I love the idea!!  It’s unique and personal to you, which is really what the wedding should be about.  I appreciate healthy eating and exercise and would LOVE to get something like that in a welcome bag…especially since vacations (and weddings) are notorious for unhealthy food and overindulging, which never makes me feel good about myself in the long run.  Hotels always have vending machines full of crap if your guests need a sugar fix.  Bring on the apples!

    The theraband is a cute idea because of the story behind it, but I just don’t know if it fits the purpose of a welcome bag…  However, I don’t think there is anything wrong with healthy snacks and bottled water!  Maybe throw in some info highlighting the area, like brochures from the local chamber of commerce or something.  And maybe a little something sweet!

    Normally I’d say just the snacks, but if you are a pilates instructor and they all know it, its personal and fun.

    my trainer got me to pack a band whenever i travel so i always can get a bit of a workout in the hotel rooms while on business… but i worry if it really would be appreciated by your guests

    they are there to enjoy and party and start exploring a new town so i wonder if a majority of the bands would be put to good use

    what about instead of the bands you inc a card with stretches they can do? with a note about keeping them in tip top limber condition for the wedding & dancing. reason being is someone like my mum or my co-workers saw a band they would wonder what to do with them

    def go with the healthier snack options though

    I think you should find a way to do both. Some people (I’m thinking of the older guests at my wedding) are going to look at that and not know/want to know what to do with it, although they may appreciate the fact that it’s about the two of you. And I love eloping’s idea of putting in a cute little note about staying limber for wedding dancing!
