Whew, I don't know about you, but I'm excited to be (basically) done with vendor reviews! They're helpful, but they're so boring. I said I wanted to fill you all in on the projects that were finished in the week or so leading up to the wedding since I definitely didn't get much blogging in.
We only had about 12 out of town bags to make, which made things much easier. I'd gone back and forth for weeks about what I wanted to put in them, but I just couldn't think of anything that was really representative of us or our hometown. My mom and I just ended up choosing some random snacks as we wandered through Sam's one day.
We included a schedule for the weekend, directions from the hotel to the church, the church to the reception, and the reception back to the hotel, and, of course, a door hanger in each bag.
(If you're interested in your own door hangers, check out my etsy shop!)
We also included a water bottle in each one, with labels from here, personalized obviously.
We also included a Wichita Guide that had all kinds of restaurant and activity recommendations since most of our family got into town on Friday. We chose Chex Mix and Trail Mix as our snacks since they're not overly sugary and kids and adults both usually like them.
But we had to include one of our favorite snacks too! Each bag had at least one huge cookie from our favorite bakery in town. Soo yummy!
And that was it! I put some damask tissue paper on top and they were ready to go. Thankfully I have a wonderful SIL who was willing to drop them off for me, because it didn't quite happen on Friday with all of the 'excitement' going on with decorating.
I'm not sure of the exact cost, but I know they weren't more than $5/bag which was totally worth it to me. I think they're such a nice touch and they really show your out of town guests that you appreciate the effort they made to come. They really don't take much time to throw together, and they make a big impact!
Did you do OOT bags? How did you decide what to fill them with?
