OOT bags

One per room? or one per person? What did you do or do you plan on doing?

    One per room, but I had a few rooms where two couples or a bunch of cousins or coworkers all sharing a room, so in those instances I put two bags in each room.

    One per room but if it was a room I knew had multiple people I put more stuff in the bag on purpose and put a little * on the bag so I'd know which was which.

    same thing...I've stayed over at almost every wedding we've ever been too and we always shared. 

    What do you plan on putting in there?

    Cool!  This makes it easier (and cheaper!!)...

    Stacy, I plan on putting in::
    A tri-fold (which I just made myself!!) with thank you letter, weekend schedule & food/entertainment recs
    2 Water bottles
    Tastykakes
    Herr's Chips
    Peanut Chews
    Gum
    Mints
    Ibuprofen
    Other salty snacks
    Homemade chocolate covered pretzels (I have a side business)
    cookies
    chewy candy of some sort
    I guess this is all pretty standard.

    We will go to Costco and load up on stuff.

    any other ideas?

    We did most of that same stuff, plus I think a bottle of Yards beer or Yuengling and a postcard of Philly.  Oh and a bumper sticker that said HIDE YOUR BEAGLE, VICK'S AN EAGLE (it was timely, lol).

    So did you guys use bags or gable boxes? or something else?  I love the look of gable boxes, but they are more expensive.  Where did you buy your bags?

    Pasma, did you all guests tell you where they were staying. Did they really book their room? I find it hard to plan since some can even change their mind at the last minute. I don't trust them enough. LOL!

    delicate, love the bumper sticker idea lol

    Tacco, I was just curious...it all sounds great!  A bottle of yards sounds great, we're big fans.  We're homebrewers so we plan to put in a bottle of our pumpkin ale (our wedding is in November).  I love that your doing something personal with your pretzels as well!

    taccoten--I ordered bags from Bags and Bows Online. The target audience is retail owners so I was able to get 100 bags for 35 bucks. I created a bio and put my name as the business.  I ordered daisy bags since daisies are one of my flowers.  They are fast and efficient with a great return policy.  The bags are really sturdy, too!  I used to get them from a store in Boston, and I still use them today for stuff.  Good luck!
