Yes, that would be awesome! I would love that as a guest. I really appreciate maps in Out of Town bags pointing out museums and drug stores and restaurants.

I think it’s definitely a good idea to make a book with suggestions on what guests can do in between! Especially for guests unfamiliar with the area, this would be a good idea. You may want to also include things to do near the reception venue in case people want to go ahead and make their way there initially.

I think that would be a great idea.  Our program was more of a booklet because it was a destination wedding and we needed to put extra information in it, map, etc.  Maybe you could design a map that has all the attractions marked on it and then have a couple pages detailing the attractions.  I have gone to weddings where there was an awkward amount of time in between, and would definitely have loved some suggestions!  : )

I think the book is a great idea.

@moderndaisy: good call on the drugstore… I can’t think of how many times I have left a ceremony thinking that if I didn’t find some blister pads or inserts my shoes and I wouldn’t make it through the reception!

THANK YOU!

One of my biggest wedding pet peeves is when there’s a big gap and nothing to do. I had to travel to a wedding the bf was in and had hours to myself with nothing to do while he was taking pictures. It was a year ago and I’m still kind of peeved. Haha.

Oh man, I would LOVE the booklet and the flip flops if I were your guest!

We invited a lot of out-of-state guests to our wedding, so I did a section on our website of area attractions, you might be able to recycle some of your info on your website if you have anyone who you think might be more of the “plan ahead” type too ! 🙂

I would definitely love this as a guest (OOT or local). Plus the drugstore being noted as well is a great idea, I’m ashamed to say I’ve made a run out to get the card in the gap before 😉

I don’t think I would really use the flip flops unless I decided to stick around and take a stroll through the park though. I’d more likely use them for dancing later in the night.

I know you are getting married in Forest Park by the fact that you are from St. Louis, so making a booklet would be AWESOME. Make sure they know that the Science Center, Zoo, Art Museum and History Museum are all free. Oh, well now as I read they are not Out of Town so they probably know, but a reminder couldn’t hurt. But the booklet would help remind them that heading to one of those place while there would be fun instead of going back home.

Flip flops would be nice as they are all going to be in summer wear, so the flipflops wouldn’t look sily with formal stuff. Tell them to keep them for later in the night as well!
