Since most of my guests will be traveling out of town and spending a lot of money on gifts,travel,hotel, etc. I think i should give them a couple gifts too. Like Ladies Half off spa treatment at the hotel, welcome wine bottles in their room, and for the Guys a welcome cigar box and reduced rate for the golf course.

@rbuchanan09: I would be worried that the money would go to waste if they weren’t interested in going ot the spa or golfing. I am not sure how you would comp that either. If it is an expensive place to stay people not want to spend any more money on those extras. I think a nice welcome bag/basket would be nice and then spend the money for maybe extras at the recption (late night snack or dessert bar).

Hm, I’ll be honest, as a guest I wouldn’t see “half off” or “reduced rate” as being spoiled or a gift, but more as something I wish I could do but can’t afford due to spending the money to go to the wedding in the first place. I think gifts are a great idea, but I think many guests would prefer something that doesn’t require them to spend any of their own money to receive their gift.

I think these are nice ideas but it would depend on your guests. For example, I don’t usually go for spa treatments (and even at 50% off, they can be quite expensive) and Fiance neither smokes or plays golf. However, if you know your guests like that kind of thing, then it would be really nice.
