I still think it would nice of you to do Out of Town bags. They are taking the time and money to travel to your wedding and it would be appropriate to have a little somthing for when they arrive to thank them for traveling. How many different hotels are we talking? You could have family help with delivering or you could have it where one family member from each hotel comes by your hotel and picks them up for everyone. I really think it would be a nice gesture on your part to have them and I’m sure you could work it out, especially with help!

I really appreciate them when I travel to weddings. Out of Town bags I have recieved have included water bottles, chips, granola bars, fruit snacks, some funsized candy (or more for kids!). Also, it’s nice to include a schedule for the weekend and a map if necessary. I’m hoping to include something geographically relevent, like maple syrup cookies for Vermont. 🙂

I agree that you should do the Out of Town bags, but instead of deliverying to so many hotels, why not do it at your rehearsal dinner, if you invited them!  Save the gas girl!

Out of Town bags are great!  Yes, its a bit of a drive and I know from experience Orlando (I-4 traffic) at the wrong time of the day is no fun…but they will be even that more excited when they get to their hotel and realize you went the extra yard!

I agree with jingle.  Don’t deliver the Out of Town to guests who didn’t stay at the hotle you blocked off rooms for.  Opt to hand them out at the rehearsal dinner or welcome dinner (if you’re having one).

agree w/ jingle also – the Out of Town bag is a nice gesture, but it’s hard to keep track of guests that don’t follow the itinerary.  If you’re not inviting them all to a rehearsal, though – perhaps figure out who will be nearby and ask them to deliver the bags, once they get there.  Too bad everyone can’t just stay in your room block!  Wouldn’t that just be so much easier?

I agree with Miss. Disney… guest will love them, and I would try to get friends/relatives to help out with the schlepping…delegate!
