We are doing them for our guests since they are travelling. Its not something you have to do, but its a nice gesture

I don’t think its expected but sure is a nice gesture.  How far out of town is your wedding?  Its usually for guests who are travelling quite a bit.  Its very popular for destination weddings.

We did them for everyone who was staying at a hotel. They’re just really nice things to have. I enjoyed making mine and felt like I could put a lot of creativity into it.

One of my friends (rudely) said that she expected an out of town guest bag.  They’re nice, completely optional, and separate from a bridesmaid/groomsmen gift.

People who you’d give a bag to: aunts and uncles who are flying in, friends who you met elsewhere… pretty much anyone from out of town/out of state who isn’t from that state.  I don’t think I’ll be doing them for friends who recently moved away.

If I make the Out of Town bags, they will contain snacks the likes of berger cookies, a crab keychain or mini Old Bay, a small map of the inner harbor (walking distance from the hotels), pamphlets from the visitor’s center, and postcards with stamps. If I do this, I might might might include 1 natty boh, though I’m worried about the distaste at receiving a room-temperature beer. Also, that shit is nasty. I wish it upon no one.
