I am having a destination wedding with fifty guests and want to do welcome bags for our guests, who will be staying at two hotels in the same resort complex.
The resort will let us provide them with a guest list for each hotel and will let guests know that they have a bag waiting for them at the bell desk that they can pick up. The resort will not keep welcome bags at reception (requiring the extra step for guests having to go to the bell desk) nor will they deliver them to the guest rooms or pre-deliver them. Bell desk seems to be the only choice.
Is this standard for those out there also doing welcome bags? It seems out of the way for guests. We are having a welcome reception the night before the wedding and could give out bags then, but only half our guests will be in town at that point, and the last thing I want to do in my wedding day is run around delivering bags at two different hotels.
What gave you all done or prepared for? Any good ideas for making things go more smoothly?
