I’d do a water and a soft drink :o) We’re just doing waters in our Out of Town bags, but that’s mainly because we’re having the wedding in Arizona in August = aka we’re afraid of dehydration.

I would do one regular soda and one bottle of water. Unless you know each of your guests extremely well, there isn’t anyway to tell how many folks drink diet.

Water and soda sounds good.

or maybe a $5.00 starbucks giftcard or whatever coffee shop is nearby where they will be staying!?

We are just doing bottled water and juice boxes (for the ones who have children) but I like the pop and water option.

What about RC Cola or Nehi Grape or Peach? Those are my favorites! 

p.s. I’m from Murphy, NC and my uncle lives in the Cleveland area Laughing

Just a tip:  Did you check with your hotel?  Mine is super strict about the goodies/drinks I include in the Out of Town bags–something about it not being brands that they already stock in their mini fridges? Just sharing a not-cool hurdle that I hadn’t been expecting.

I personally don’t drink pop so I would prefer if there was a water in the Out of Town tote!

@Virginia, while I can understand that from the hotel’s view as they do make money from the stuff in their fridges, how will they even have any clue what you are putting in the bags unless they rummage through them?

@Selene–I think it’s a matter of principle!  I know I want to do things on the up and up, I’m sure we all do! Not to mention, some Out of Town ‘bags’ are actually baskets, and everything is visible. I would hate to have made all of my 80 Out of Town baskets and not known the hotel policy!  It’s no big deal really–I just couldn’t include coke products.  But who knows, maybe all hotels aren’t as strict.  It’s just a heads up.
