We surprisingly had more people come from out of town than we expected, which was AWESOME! Luckily most of our family is all pretty local, but we had a couple friends and some of my grandmother’s family even make the trek from Florida! So we had a total of 24 people not from the Metro Detroit area travel to our wedding. Having anyone travel out of state (some not being family) is such an honor, so I wanted our out of state guests to know that we appreciated them immensely.
All of our guests ended up booking their rooms at the hotel where we had our room block, which was perfect, since I was able to drop off the gifts and let the hotel hand them out accordingly. I immediately knew what I was going to put into the bags, so it was just a matter of running to Sam’s Club and picking up the items and getting them stuffed.
Initially, I was going to use gift bags, but I found these smaller re-usable bags on Amazon for $16.00 for a pack of 25—probably about equal to the price of paper gift bags.

All of the bags were stuffed with this post card created from a simple Vista print template. I believe I paid $5.00 (that’s including shipping) for these during one of the insane sales they had.
