  I really love the orchard theme! I think you should definitely go with it! If I was an Out of Town guest at your wedding and received the basket, I would be very excited :-).

I would love the orchard theme but I would look for a container that could either fold flat to take home on the plane or something disposable.

You can get cardboard boxes that look like old fashioned wooden apple boxes and vintage style labels.

i agree with julies1949….  a basket might be a hard thing for guests who’ve flown in to take home with them.

Darling Husband and i had originally thought about doing tote bags favors for out Out of Town guests, but then 90% were Out of Town and staying all over the place, so we decided to do tote bags for all our guests.  It was cheap ($1 a bag online, for light weight natural cotton) and Darling Husband is a screen printer, so it didn’t cost us anything to personalize them for our rustic theme.

maybe something like a tote bag personalized with your orchard theme would be an alternative for the baskets?

we did our daughter’s wedding in Chicago and did Chicago themed gift for our out of town guests and they were a big hit. I love the orchard theme.. add apples and cherries too as cherries are Michigan grown fruit.  Here are how ours came out: http://www.celebrationideasonline.com/wedding-gift-bags-for-out-of-town-guests.html.  We disnged the canvas eco friendly bags ourselves for less than $3.00 and they came out great and guests were using them all weekend as they traveled around Chicago then folded them up easily and packed them to bring home at the end of the weekend.
