We haven’t made ours yet, but I have list of things I’m considering.  I’m thinking:

  • Welcome note / letter
  • Guide of things to do in the area (our local tourism office gives them out for free)
  • Water bottles (2)
  • Advil or similar
  • Goldfish or bag of nuts
  • Possibly some homemade chocolate chip cookies?  If not homemade, some pre-packaged cookies
  • Maybe a handful of assorted candies
  • Mini tissues
  • Gum or mints
  • Possibly a mini lint roller

We had a Destination Wedding so all of our guests were out of town, but we had:

A bottle of wine from a local winery back home

A jar of marmalade sold locally to our wedding site

A bottle opener, a wine bottle stopper

A deck of cards

Plantain chips and A tropical trail mix

Lollipop’s shaped like flip flops

We put it all in a teal beach bucket

Here is what I have planned so far (it probably will not be much more, but you never know)

-Water bottle (or two) with a personalized label

-Schedule of events/local restaurants/things to do

-A diy “do not disturb” sign for the door

-A few chocolates from a local shop

-A hand written note thanking them for coming

We’re having a domestic destination wedding, so everyone is Out of Town.  We’re including in our bags from papermart: 

  • welcome letter w/itinerary, our favorite spots in the area, how to get around, etc.
  • some inexpensive snacks: cheese/pb crackers, frito lay assorted, sunchips assorted, quaker chewy granola bars, biscoff cookies, maybe some homemade cookies
  • water bottles

Additional potential items:

  • Certs mints
  • Single doses of advil

Here’s a thread I did a while back to poll what kind of items guests tend to like: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/what-are-your-favorite-oot-or-welcome-bags#ixzz2udijuNeo
