I’m from MN, so I don’t know much about Kentucky, but when I think of Kentucky, I would think something Derbyish or something involving "bluegrass" (music or plant!) or something baseballish from the Louisville slugger company. Maybe some sort of local or state artistan object like honey from a local farmer or from Appalachia or, if you’re into it , some Appalachian folk songs on CD . Good luck!

Kentucky?  A mint julep cup!  Those lil’ buggers are cute!

Check out these stores for ideas:

http://www.atasteofkentucky.com/shop/index.php

http://www.completelykentucky.com/

http://www.truekentucky.com/shoptk/

http://www.kdf.org/store/default.asp (roll the mouse over "Shop" on the top and there will be a drop-down menu of categories).

There’s always the fleur-de-lis, bourbon, bourbon balls, those Rebecca Ruth candies (I’ve never had them), derby pie, mint juleps, julep cups, and something else I thought of a minute ago but just totally blanked on…

For other KY brides–check out Ruth Hunt Candies (I’m biased, but I like them better than Rebecca Ruth’s): http://www.ruthhuntcandy.com/defaultt.html   If you’ve never had their "Blue Mondays," they’re awesome and very central KY.  

Also, check out  http://kentuckytourism.com/about/brochures.htm to order maps and brochures for KY travelers.  Just note that if you want more than 5 (which most people would, I assume), you have to use a separate email which is listed on the page in the link above.

We also did bottles of Ale-8 in our bags.  If you’ve never heard of Ale-8, it’s an incredible local soft drink that tastes a bit like ginger ale: http://ale8one.com/

I second the Ale-8 idea, although that’s not directly Louisville related. How about something to do with horses? I’m not sure what to put in that bag regarding that, though.

I second the derby pie, as well, because besides a map or suggestions of things to do, your guests will most appreciate the edible treats!

Haha! This was 6 months ago. I am just now coming back to the local boards. Have you already had your wedding? What did you end up doing in the bags? How did they go over?

I’m actually doing a thank you bag for my girl’s weekend at the Derby.  I am actually taking the mint julep vase instead of cup and putting KY related items in them and a couple of the web sites are ones that I have been looking at this week so this is perfect.

you can swing by any KFC and talk to the manager about giving you those red buckets they put the chicken in. use a little bright red cut crinkled paper and tuck your goodies in on top…..SO SWEET!
