Maybe a Kodak disposible camera?  It all started here!  It might be fun to take a pic of you and your Fiance holding signs like “Thanks for Coming”.  It will be a fun surprise for them when they develop the camera.

French’s Mustard started here as well.  You could get them a bottle and put a cute tag on it.

I’ve been working on this as well.  I was trying to think of snacks native to Rochester and I am getting nowhere.

Yeah, I was thinking that too.  And I tend to use them but not develop them.

I thought about a local wine (since we are technically Finger Lakes Wine Region).  Casa Larga is the town over from my town so I thought about getting splits from there.  But it costs more than I was hoping.

I will keep thinking!

I just saw a Stever’s candy commercial and thought I bet they do wedding chocolate molds or something wedding related.  You can try there.  They are on Park Ave. near Berkley.

We came up with out Out of Town snacks last night while at Wegmans; Wegmans brand snacks!  Wegmans is native to Rochester and most of our OOTers were once Rochesterians and miss Wegmans like crazy.  It’s not the BEST solution but it works for us!

I love the Weggie idea – totally Rochester! I don’t have a green thumb, but could you get lilac seeds for people to plant? That could be cheaper than some food items

@Chamgpagne,

That is actually a GREAT idea!!! Anyone from the general area (even outside of Rochester) would know Wegmans!!!

You should totally put the items in a Wegmans Eco Bag!!!

I live in Rochester and was also wondering what was ‘local’.  I would consider maybe some coffee from a local roaster, or even hit up some of the stands at the Rochester Public Market for ideas.  The Wegmans idea is also a really good idea – who doesn’t like Wegmans? lol

I’m getting married in Syracuse, and nothing exciting started there :-
