- Wedding: August 2010
Our wedding will have mostly Out of Town guests. I had intended on having an Out of Town night, the night before the wedding, where I invited all of the Out of Town guests to come to our cabin on the lake, enjoy a campfire, have some fun with s’mores and sparklers and give out Out of Town tote bags.
Well, I feel a little bad not including the few in-town friends. They’d only add up to about 12 extras and I don’t live “in-town” myself, so it’s not like I see them a lot! So I’m now considering that the Out of Town Totes should be “Wedding Weekend” Totes and I should make one for everyone. The only things in the tote that are specifically for OOTers are a state map and local tourist info – that are free to me – and not terrible for the locals to have an extra of. The totes, aside from being custom screen-printed awesomeness, will have sunscreen, homemade natural lavender soap, custom postcards and a wedding weekend guide. So it seems reasonable, to me, to just include all guests in such an evening. (And if they choose not to come, then they miss out on their own accord.)
Does this sound reasonable?? Have you heard of anyone else doing such a thing?? We will still have a wedding favor, but it’s just a piece of maple sugar candy, so nothing fancy.
