What did you put in your OOT boxes?

I purchased large gable boxes (9x6x6) and now need to decide what to put in them. I figured some sort of snacks, travel advil packs, and two bottles of water. What else? Is that enough? I'm afraid to go overboard on the snacks but I don't want the boxes to seem empty.

Any thoughts/lists would be greatly appreciated! TIA.

    haha...For mine I'm thinking, what would I really like to snack on when I come back drunk...water, candy, cheese doodles :) Advil for the AM...
    Make sure you include directions to the church/reception, and shuttle info if you're having one...

    Yeah, I was going to ask this yesterday while I was waiting to hear from the hotel about how many guests have booked a room.  But then the hotel replied to my emails very quickly and told me that there are absolutely no guests on our block -- so I guess I get to save some money and some time!

    We just made our welcome bags last night. I guess it depends on when you will be handing these out and if it's strictly for oot guests. We are only doing ours for guests who are staying over at the hotel after the reception. They will receive their bags from the front desk when they check in. We included 2 bottles of water, cookies, cheese & peanut butter crackers, chips and Hershey Kisses. We also had a little insert that says thank you for celebrating with us etc. please join us for breakfast the next morning.

    I got mine from www.boxandwrap.com they seriously came in under two days. You can also just get gift bags from target if you're really short on time.

    A week before the wedding I was going to go to Costco to buy food for the OOT bags with my MIL because she had  a membership.  The day of DH asked if he could come too, I said "Hell, if you're going, then I don't have to, you can take care of this and I'll do the million other things on our list."  

    So, what did DH put in our bags:

    Spongebob Cheez-Its
    Scooby Snacks
    Swedish Fish
     
    Luckily MIL was there to add Granola bars, apples, and water
