We at a lost for what we should put in the bag for our guests. I found a really cute bag on etsy that I want to use but dont know what to put in it past water, information giving times for: rehearsal/welcome dinner, wedding, directions and a morning after brunch. We are thinking of putting in the local indie free paper that gives reviews for dinning and the city visitor guide. What else should we add? What did you put in yours?

@anemone681: We put tissues, granola bars, cheezit crackers, and little emergency kits (advil, hand wipes, etc) along with a map and itinerary.

Oh! I’m so excited to talk about this! 😀
We found these nice canvas bags at the Dollar Tree just on a whim! They were blue with a front pocket.
Since we’re from North Carolina, we made it North Carolina themed. So we got Lance crackers which orginated from North Carolina, glass bottles of Cheerwine (also from NC), cookies in the shape of North Carolina (We made them ourselves with a NC shaped cookie cutter)
Then we got a deck of cards, water bottles, and a care packet in a mini canvas bag.
The care packet had: Purell wipe, tylenol, and bandaids
We then printed a welcome letter on one side and a North Carolina Fun Facts on the back and stuffed it in the front pocket!
We had a lot of fun with these!
When my Darling Husband gets back (the pictures are on his phone) I’ll post a picture of them!

We are focusing on snack/breakfast items, as well as morning-after items.

@anemone681: For the bags themselves, I picked out fabrics that fit our colors and my mom sewed the bags. (link to the pattern at the bottom, it’s an easy, basic pattern)
Here’s a list of what we put in the bags:
– bottle of water
– granola bar
– Annie’s bunny crackers (like Goldfish crackers)
– Alka Seltzer (I only gave these to people I knew were drinkers – good hangover rememdy)
– Travel Portland Magazine (wedding was in Portland)
– Transit Map of Downtown Portland
– Travel Brochures for Portland & Oregon
– Oregon Post Card

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
we added snacks- goldfish crackers, granola, and gum. Depending on how long a guest would be staying, we had “tiered” bags. Guests who were staying one night still received a “basic” bag with water (hotel charged for it), fewer snacks.
We also did post cards, city maps, and “our favorite things to do in Baltimore.”
