Since we're apparently not getting the other threads back, I thought I'd go ahead and just start a new one.
We're planning on doing welcome bags for our guests as favors. We don't have a single guest not coming from out of town, so it seems like the best option. Probably about 95% of them have never been to the Finger Lakes region/NY wine country where we live/are getting married. So we want to give them a little slice of it.
Is anyone else doing welcome bags? I'm not sure if I should make one for every family/couple coming together, or one for each person. I'm planning on doing one per family/couple at this point. They're going to be relatively pricey to assemble and since there will be a few things in it, I don't see the need to make one for EVERY guest. If we were doing something like pictures frames I'd do one for everybody, but this doesn't seem to fall into that same kind of favor category.
I also have to find out if our hotel will charge us to hold them behind the desk. I guess a lot do, but since our reception is at the hotel I hoping they wont. They pride themselves in not gouging fees onto everything. I hope this is one of them!
