I think what you are providing is just enough, other then that it may look like random stuff in a bag.

I like what your doing with the tea bags (being something locally made.) What I’m planning on doing is putting items in the bags that are made in Texas, like tea, a bag of fritos & chili (frito was born in Texas along with the first canned chili, so I’m calling this the “texas chili pie” along with candies pecans (famous in texas) and cookies with our college colors 🙂

ColoradoBride…I’m in Denver!  So maybe we borrow eachothers ideas!  I noticed that your wedding is in October…which means the weather could be doing anything at that time! lol  I’m having a December wedding, so I’m going to try to center my Out of Town bags around “warmth”…gourmet hotchocolate, popcorn, stuff like that.  I am HUGE fan of World Market, and they’re prices are so reasonable, so I might head on down there to get some fun stuff for the Out of Town bags.  I LOVE your idea about putting Celestial Seasonings in your bags.  It’s such a unique & personal touch considering you are from Boulder.  One thing my fiancee suggested for ours is to add a list of fun things for guests to do while they are in town for the wedding.  I really don’t know what I am going to put there…someone suggested the Molly Brown House (I’m a huge history buff, so I thought that would be fun).  Anyway, I’ll let you know if I think of anything else!

AnnieAAA…I love your theme for you Out of Town bags.  I’m originally from TX and my mouth is watering thinking about the candied pecans!

Along with the normal “check out our town and local delights angle” I went to the dollar store and got things I felt my guests might forget at home and still need. The dollar store had a small thing of Excedrin, a sewing kit, and a lint remover. These were all things that all of my guests commented they used.

I would try to include one of those colorful maps of Downtown Boulder and something in your note to guests about the elevation.  I also read another local bride who was putting a microbrew in each bag, but that might be a bit pricey.

@FutureMrsDuff  I really like your ideas for the Out of Town bags.  I might use that.

@FutureMrsDuff: Those are *fantastic* ideas. Just recently, I attended a wedding and had a rip-roaring headache as we were leaving for the ceremony. I ended up buying Advil from the hotel’s “convenience store”, and it cost a *fortune*! I think I probably paid $2/pill, but I was desperate.

I’m doing a canvas tote bag, ala Ms. Fro Yo and Mascara. I bought them from http://www.cheaptotes.com and am stamping them with an Arizona “Red Rock” since I’m getting married in Sedona and filling them with:

2 waters, 2 bags of microwave popcorn, Assorted Granola Bars, Crackers, Prickly Pear Jam (made in AZ), and Cowboy Chocolate (made in AZ).
