We are also putting in a shout whipe or tide pen (last wedding i went to i got red wine down the front of my dress). We are also putting together a "travel book" of things to do which will also include a welcome note and a timeline of the weekend activities. Some people like to put postcards in them (one for the couple and one addressed to the newlyweds). We are also putting sunscreen in ours (beach area) but you could put some bug spray if you are in a buggy area. We are also putting in our photosharing business card so people will get them a couple time throughout the weekend. Just some thoughts.

small advil packets, map of the local area, great places for breakfast nearby, fresh fruit (apples since they last the longest), local sweets if you have anything nearby that’s famous, thank you for coming letter, information about the local history (we’re getting married in a former industrial area turned financial center so it has an interesting story…), chapstick, small hand lotion, phone numbers for local taxis if you aren’t providing transportation, granola bars, small packet of tissues…the possibilities are endless!

If you know that a lot of your guests will be bringing children, you could include small toys, coloring books, crayons, etc. to keep them busy during times they’re stuck in the hotel room.

  • Wedding: September 2021

I am contacting the local chamber of commerce (Boulder, CO) to get an area map and brochures with attractions. And, we are adding a newsletter (with a welcome, a calendar or weekend events, a note about altitutde sickness, restaurant reccommendations and a word search with words about us, the wedding, etc.). Also, we will be putting in 2  pre-stamped post cards, one addressed to us (ala Ms. Pinot Noir) and another blank with local scenery. We may throw in some advil, sunscreen packets and possibly the personalized chapstick I have been looking at, depending on what the budget is looking like closer to the event. Finally, we are adding snacks-2 bags of Boulder Chips, 2 granola bars, 2 packages of local organic fruit snacks and 2 bottles of water, courtesy of the Costco Membership I bought for the wedding No matter what you add, your guests are sure to appreciate the gesture!

all similar things: Maps, local area attractions, local delights dealing with Baltimore (Berger cookies), post cards and mini bottles of champagne, sunscreen, english chocolate (so they won’t have to eat American chocolate), and we’re setting up activities that people can choose to join us in- so a list and itinerary of that.


i like the kids idea!

My fiance and I met in South Boston and both live there now even though the wedding is being held in CT.  In our bags (much cheaper than baskets!) we’re putting in Poland Spring Water, Cape Cod Potato Chips, New England Coffee samples (we can smell them roasting the beans we live so close to them and its the best coffee ever!!!) Advil, Gummy Bears (fiance’s favorite candy), Coloring book and Crayons for the kids, getting the things to do brochures (free from chamber of commerce) Welcome letter, Maps/Directions to the wedding and back again if they’re different.  Cab numbers is an awesome idea and will be going in as well…

We live in Los Angeles so we plan on putting a bottle of California wine, See’s candy, bottled water, california pistashios, and a post card. Plus a little welcome note with the phone numbers of important people if they have questions.
