I think it will be cheaper to buy large bags of things and repackage in small cellophane bags secured with a sticker rather than buying the snack sized foods.

For example 16 3 oz bags of nuts is about 37 dollars (3 lbs) or 5 lbs of nuts for the same price.

You can buy the bags pretty cheap too.  100 for less than $10.

And then I think it will give it a nice cohesive look as well.

I also plan on making really simple and cheap caramel corn to package for the bags.

so long story short I think I plan on spending about $3 per bag.

We tried to keep the expenses of our bags pretty low and for the most part succeeded.

We had custom tote bags made. They were ordered through my husband’s aunt because she works for a printing company and could order them at cost.

The following items were in our bags:

-Information sheet with map and welcome letter

-Two buckeyes specially wrapped by Malley’s chocolates (local item)

-Humphrey popcorn balls (local item)

– Gold fish and teddy grahams.

-Bag of chips

-Two bottles of water

You can also include maps or local information. We did not because we couldn’t find a way to obatin these items at low cost or free. The snacks and water we bought at costco.

@lefeymw: The repackaging is a good idea, but I will say that personally that would have been the last thing I wanted to be doing a few a days before my wedding. Stressful! 🙂 We were able to find well priced packaged snacks at costco.

@jaylii9: There is no reason it cant be done weeks ahead of time (depending on the foods you choose).  Nuts don’t really go bad or pretzels as long as they are sealed well.
