  • Wedding: October 2011

I got married in October as well.  I put in apples, mini peanut butters, crackers, mini nutellas, chips, gum, cookies, tissues and water bottles with homemade labels.  I also made little “oops” kits that had bobby pins, bandaids, Advil, hair ties, Shout wipes, Wet Ones, and safety pins.  I also included a nice note and a homemade crossword puzzle.  I really loved my OOT boxes.

@kmcnamara:  I think it was just a welcome and thank you to our guests, along with some information on the hotel shuttle.  Also a casual invitation to join us for brunch the next morning in the lobby.  I tried to find a copy but I couldn’t.

@Koko1977:  I bought them online.  I can’t remember which website I used because I used so many for different things.  They are called “gable boxes” and they come in many different sizes and colors.  You could do a Google search and find the ones that are right for you.

I also used a website called minimus.biz for all sorts of “mini” items.

In additon to snacks and a water bottle, we included a welcome/thank you note, a schedule of events, shuttle information, and a list of emergency phone numbers for the weekend (I put our parents’ numbers).  We also put in a local map and a bunch of tourist brochures that we got from the local tourism board/visitor’s center.
