Our Wedding: Out of Town Guest Bags

We were so proud of our OOT guest bags that I had to do post on them! I hope all of our guests enjoyed all the goodies and it put a little smile on their face :) Thursday prior to our wedding we put about 46 bags together.

Here is a picture of a finish bag! I attached a tag with our monogram with ribbon and put a little note on the back of them. My amazing bridesmaid made the tags for me! It said "Eat. Drink. Be Married." on the bottom which went along with the bridal shower theme and of course my cocktail napkins!

We did an assembly line and actually had fun! It only took about 25 minutes from start to finish.

Costco and the Paper Factory greatly helped us out. I had an idea of what I wanted to include but figured it would be up to whatever Costco had on the shelves!

This is what we included:
2 Bottles of water
1 Hershey's Chocolate Bar (We grew up in Hershey, PA)
5 Strawberry Twizzlers
3 Mini variety bags of chips ( purchased boxes of "assorted")
1 Pack of gum

We really wanted just black bags but they didn't have enough! Then we went with white...and a couple green to complete the amount we needed. Each bag cost about 70 cents! Honestly I can't remember how much all the food/water cost. Below is a picture of completion!

We had a lot of mini bags, twizzlers and water left over on purpose. Our bridal party were able to snack on these leftovers between events on our wedding day. I know us Ladies did! In the end, I'm really glad we did the bags for our guests. We really appreciated them staying overnight and spending the day with us.

Looking at these pictures make me sad! Our wedding weekend went way too fast! Can we have a do over?

Great ideas! We did guest bags also since it was a destination wedding. It was so much fun to put them together!
