    I think it sounds great! Out of Town bags are meant to be a nice gesture and give your Out of Town guests a bit of comfort on their trip. They’re not meant to stress you out or be your biggest focus. If I were a guest, I’d be plenty pleased. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds good to me ๐Ÿ™‚ Only thing I would consider adding is a welcome note or something like that to welcome and thank your guests for attending your big day!

    Well you certainly out did me! We’re not doing Out of Town bags, but I think only two of our guests are true OOTers, so I don’t feel too bad. These sound awesome!

    That sounds like plenty! We did bags and our include water, chips, peanut butter crackers, granola bars, advil, airheads, and some other color coordinated candy my Future Mother-In-Law found.

    Adding a Thank you note is a great idea though!

    @bee_elle: I was wondering how you get the oot bags into their hotel room? I am getting married in Vegas so everyone willbe from out of town including us  lol.. and some arrive the same day as we do and some arrive on the actual day of the wedding… We also need to get a gift into the Best Mans room will they let me in there a few hours before he checks in?

    I agree with the suggestion of a welcome note. I will have 20 guest baskets to make for out-of-towners, and Im going to write a personalized card for each of them…totally not necessary, but I wanted to do that since they are traveling so far.

    I also think it is enough. I would add tissues to the bag.

    That’s a really great bag! If it’s not already planned, I’d recommend adding transit info, a schedule (if someone’s invited to rehearsal dinner, etc.), and cell phone numbers for bride/groom/family.

    Sounds like plenty! And maybe if you know that someone has an allergy (add benedryl or something), a kid (small toy & juice box) they are bringing with, has a medical thing (list of local emergency nubmers and location of hospital), just a little something extra that is like wow – this is JUST for me!

    Or maybe even including those in general (really cheap) then that’s perfect! If anything to for sure add is emergency local numbers and locations of hospitals, *just* in case (I know I’m accident prone so I would want that information! lol!).

    But even if you don’t add anything, that’s perfect!  A PP said it – it’s not your main concern, so no worries! ๐Ÿ™‚ (Oh, or if you have a special Out of Town guest like in-laws or a bridal party member, def. a hand-written note!)
