    I’m torn…for practicality reasons, I voted for reception handout.  However, my Martha/OCD gene thinks that having the bags waiting at check-in would be an incredibly kind/impressive gesture for all the guests who traveled far to join your celebration! In the end though, either way works…it’s the thought that counts! 

    PS:  I am so jealous…we were supposed to get married in Quechee, VT, but the logistics just didn’t work out.  Hope you get a glorious fall day for your wedding!

    @FutureMrsWeston:  We had a DW but all of our guests stayed at one place which made it easier. We had them waiting at the check in desk when they arrived. I like the idea of doing it at the welcome reception as well thou!

    We debated on this same issue.  In the end, we delivered them to the hotels — most of our guests were staying at two hotels a couple blocks apart, but several guests were staying elsewhere.  In the end, we did a mini road-trip around downtown dropping off bags at five different hotels.  We figured it wasn’t that much more work for us, and this way we could include an insert in the bag that had details and directions for the welcome dinner for guests who didn’t remember to bring the invitation insert with the info on it.  Good luck!
