Have any of you done welcome bags for your OOT guests staying at a hotel? Did you put the guests names on the bags? My mother is freaking out about getting everyone's name to put on a bag and wants to put them in the guests rooms before they check in. First, she is only getting FI's family and none of our friends names (and to be honest, I don't even know which friends are staying at the hotel) and second, I don't see how she thinks we will have time to sneak into everyone's room between the hotel having the rooms ready and before people start showing up.
I say leave the bags blank with no names and let the hotel pass them out. I know this could mean that hotel forgets or they may charge a fee. Should I just ask people to spread the word to stop at my suite when they check in? I'll be out setting up the reception and then going back to the hotel to get ready for rehearsal, so I don't even know if I'll be available to pass them out if they stop at my room.
How did you ladies handle this?
