I had a separate suitcase filled with wedding only stuff and just packed my Out of Town bags in there.  My destination wedding was in Hawaii and I figured the extra bag charge of $25 is cheaper than shipping it out there ahead of time.  I also didn’t want to fill up my wedding planner’s house with my wedding stuff.

we’re putting our Out of Town bags when we arrive at the destination. we figured it would be easier to do it that way…then again we only have to put together 20 bags.

Random question, but what are you putting in the bags? I’m doing Out of Town bags as well, and I was thinking

1. A map of the area with points of interest

2. Bottles of water

3. Candy

I need some ideas!

Here’s what I put in my canvas totes:

Macadamia nuts

Beach Towel or Beach mat

Maps

Welcome Letter with Schedule of Events and Invitation to the Day after Brunch

Trail mix

Water

Luggage Tag that acted as name tag to differentiate the bags

Travel size sunscreen

For some reason, I love hearing about what you ladies are including in your Out of Town bags!!  

I think regardless of where/when your wedding is, bottles of water and a travel sunscreen are two universal items to have! Maybe also mini bottles of scentless lotion and liquid hand soap would be nice, too. (I hate those little bars of soap that hotels provide!) I will definitely be including these items in my Out of Town bags along with other local goodies that I come across in the next few months. (Sorry, LittleBear, I’m a bit off topic…)
