Over Night Guest Goody Bags?

Robin, on May 9, 2018 at 22:45 Posted in DIY 0 8

Hi Everyone,

We are getting married at a location that will have rooms available to our guests. Has anyone done gift bags for those guests staying at the hotel? If yes, what did you put in them? I was thinking of putting in some essentials like a bottle of water, maybe a snack or two, travel items like small tooth paste/mouthwash etc. Are these good ideas or am I not on the right track?

    I called them welcome bags anf ours included peanut free granola bars, mixed nuts, some chocolate toonies and 2 bottled waters. Information bundle was also included for activities, welcome dinner, and wedding day schedule.

    Something for the guests to do during the day and had a campfire the same night after coming from dinner.

    I made cute little welcome bags for our out-of-town guests!

    I included a welcome note, wedding and transportation information, a bottle of water, mints, advil, a can of Cheerwine (local NC soda), a southern brand of chips, my favorite nice chocolates (Chuao Chocolatiers).

    Snacks are always welcome and I think it's fun to include some of your and your fiance's personal faves or something local!!

    I like it! We just did welcome letters but had considered doing goody bags as well. Some people have included some local items as well, depending if you have anything you can include in them that would be more local. I like the idea of dollar store sandals as well, if the hotel has a pool (or they can use it for dancing during your wedding).

    I think you’re definetly on the right track! Maybe some Advil or something for hangovers? Other than that I think you have the basics covered!
