ebowers23:  We aren’t having a destination wedding, so I don’t know if this is at all helpful, but we are doing bags too!

We plan on including a welcome letter with transportation pick up and drop off times (we’re providing transportation to the wedding from the hotel).

Additionally, we were going to do cute little bottles of Pellegrino water, a sweet snack, a savory snack, a granola bar (or something similar for the morning after), some door hangers, some Advil, and maybe some mints or gum.

ebowers23:  An info sheet with the locations of the church and reception venue as well as the shuttle information (we provided a shuttle from the hotel to the church to the reception). I put in a bottle of water, some snacks and candy, a packet of advil, tums, kleenex, a mini lint roller, hand sanitizer, altoids, and a mini first aid kit. I think people liked them!

We put two water bottles, snacks like goldfish, peanuts, cookies, and fruit snacks, some candy like twizzlers and Reese’s peanut butter cups, some gum, and a packet of Motrin. Stuffed it all in a box and found an adorable poem to go with it!

ebowers23:  Schedule of events tailored to each guest.   Maps of area, one with directions to the venue/hotels superimposed.   List of phone numbers – our Day-of Coordinator, my cell, my then-FI’s cell, hotel numbers, venue number and name of contact person at the venue.  One guest brough a dog so we listed a vet’s phone number on his info sheet.  List of our favorite shops in town and how my Fiance and I found them, what we liked in them – especially the ice cream flavors.  

Food – organic applesauce and a compostable plastic spoon (both from Whole Foods).  Granola bars.  York Peppermint patty.  Pen, notepad.   Bottle of SmartWater.

What everyone said they loved – the applesauce.   Months later I was still hearing how good the applesauce was.  LOL
