What do think constitutes an out of town guest for a welcome bag?

We decided not to do it (daughter #2) as the venue is between the two families – with the potential for 100% out of town guests – either 3.5 hours east or 1.5 hours west. Also, we blocked rooms at 4 hotels and 2 said there would be a $3 fee, to deliver the bags to each room. We will have no idea where people are staying. If we had chosen a more remote location, with a couple of hotels, and not a resort area destination, with dozens of hotels, we could have considered it.

When my first daughter was married only 4 guests flew-in for the wedidng, and they only stayed at the wedding hotel for 2 nights – plane got in 5:30 PM the night before the wedding and they left the hotel before breakfast – 8:00 AM the morning after. I sent them a link to recommended resturants, in the area, since they didn’t stay long enough to do anything else.

Kacie209:  We gave bags to everyone who stayed in a hotel and to family members who crashed at my parents’ big house.  All the other travelers – people who had family or friends in town and stayed with them – didn’t get one, because the logistics were too complicated for delivering the bags.  Plus, the welcome bag mainly contains things like snacks, sunscreen, etc.  We figured the people staying with friends or family could scrounge that up at their hosts’ houses.
