Who gets the out of town bags? Is it only people who are staying in room block hotels?

I would for the people that are staying at the hotel.  You can get a list of how many from the hotel.  And you have the hotel pass them out when the guest(s) check in.  Keep some extra just in case people booked their hotels late or if they didn’t mention to the hotel they are with your wedding.  I would just do 1 per room.

Also if there are a bunch of people staying at someones house..like if Aunt Jane and Uncle Joe are staying at Cousin’s Cindy’s house and it’s close enough and you have enough time..stop over and leave some at the house, but def. don’t go out of your way to do this…it would just be a nice gesture.

A little bag of Zapps potato chips would be great in a NOLA Out of Town bag!  We’re not getting married in New Orleans, but somewhat close by, so we’re putting them in our Out of Town bags.

for our outdoor ceremony with a tree themed/rustic/lavender wedding we hare screenprinting canvas tote bags with oak trees and including local travel brochures, sunscreen, custom postcards and homemade lavender soap.  on our list we’ll have cell numbers and a printed version of the map (as we didnt mail one to guests).

we’re not including snacks or water…  partly because our bags are being given to all guests at a welcome campfire the night before the wedding.
