With so many families moving to other states and countries, most brides will have a few out of town attendees on their RSVP list. Many soon-to-be couples may wish to offer guests a special bag of small gifts and information to help make their stay more comfortable. Inspired by an article that appeared on the Tampa Bay Times website this week, Do the Bride a Favor is listing our top tips to make your out of town guest goody bags a success.
Your out of town guest will need all the information they can get for their stay in your town. Include maps and directions to the wedding and reception, a list of contacts such as doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and restaurants. Also include the contact information for the bridal party. Make a trip to your local chamber of commerce or tourism office. Both locations will have a plethora of free information for you to give your guests.
Making your guests feel welcome and special is the main point of the out of town bag. Make room for homemade or local treats in your bag such as custom wedding chocolates, local wines, and a handful of savory crackers. You can also personalize items like water bottles, sunscreen containers, or the bags themselves.
Always include a handwritten, personalized thank you note. These can be short, sweet, and to the point, but they let the guest know that you appreciate them traveling to be with you on your wedding day.
Whether you have a small or large budget, there should be room to make out of town guests feel welcome with a special gift upon arrival at their hotel. Giving your guests all the important information about the wedding will also help them feel included and welcome at your ceremony.
