Since most people have 2 people per room, we did 2 bottles of water.  We went to BJs (costco, etc) and got crackers and chips.  We also included personalized M&Ms (mom demanded!) for the salty/sweet combo.  We really wanted to add something with a touch of home, so we ordered mini bags of Virginia Peanuts (I’m hoping we have extras!!)

We also decided to stick in there a hand written thank you note from us, and an insert of times, addresses, good restaurants, cab numbers, and directions.

Hope this helps!

We are putting in a couple of bottles of water and then getting snacks from costco (chips, candy, whatever looks good) to put in there as well. We’re also trying to find something unique to our city. There will be a welcome packet as well that has directions to the venues as well as information about our city and things to do while they’re there. We might include personalized stadium cups (hard plastic) but we’re undecided and it’s completely unnecessary. The only other thing I can think of are door hangers that say something like “Do not disturb. Recovering from Bear and Goose’s wedding!”

Hope that helps!

I really like welcome bags and had wanted to do them but in the end they got cut from my to do list. I attended a wedding last Sat and the welcome bags included 2 bottles of water, 2 small bags of pretzels, a lint roller, local map, tylenol and mini Hershey’s bars (wedding in PA). The water was my favorite part and we appriciated the pretzels the morning after the wedding. I think an accurate wedding weekend schedule and some restaurant suggestions would have been nice as an Out of Town guest. Especially if the bride and/or groom have lived in the area and have favorite restaurants. It hink a mini pack of tissues would be nice to add too!

In our bags, we are putting an itinerary, some local winery pamphlets (we’re getting married in VA wine country), 2 bottles of water, and some snacks that are local to Virginia (VA peanuts, salt water taffy, Route 11 potato chips) since everyone is traveling for the wedding.

I didn’t spend more than $5 on each of them. I put in Georgia peanuts (that’s where the wedding was), and purchased snack bags on Amazon.com – which averaged to about 30 cents a piece.  I also put in a welcome letter.


I’m selling extra welcome bags for $10 for 100 of them – so they’re really inexpensive: http://classifieds.weddingbee.com/topic/100-blue-gift-bags-for-sale-for-10-for-welcome-or-wedding-party-bags
