I really wasn’t going to get too creative with mine… I just want my guests to be comfortable. I was thinking of a few bottles of water, some trail mix, advil, a getting-to-know-the-city type guide, and directions.

Well, I am getting married in the Dominican so mine will be different but I put a beach towel, a lei, beach ball, lip balm, koozie, and a post card.

You could include local area information, or something native to the area. Like in Boston I’ve seen the lollipops in the shapes of lobsters or in San Fran they include sourdough stuff. Because it’s winter you could totally play up the “cozy” theme and include hot chocolate packets or some hand heaters, etc.

Have fun with them.

OOT bags can include a large variety of things; waters, sodas, snacks, advil, metro maps, little pamphlets about things-to-do in your town, local restaurant recommendations, etc.

For your winter themed wedding, you could do winter mint gum, candy canes, hot coco mix that only need hot water, holiday themed cookies, hand warmers, etc.

We put water bottles, advil and pepto, pretzels, cookies, chips, an apple and an orange, a few pieces of candy (chocolates and mints) along with a note welcoming guests and a sheet we put together with things to do around the city. If there is something that is special of the place where you are getting married, maybe put that?

Definitely include a map, info about places to go/what to do/where to eat. What about the cheap gloves or earmuffs? Hot cocoa could be good, too!
