I would make small bags of toiletries that we all usually forget. Drug stores are great for buying those little travel size items. I would talk to the manager and ask if you can get a break on the price by buying by the case! Doesn't hurt to ask! Have a great wedding!

For my daughter's wedding in CanCun we included sunscreen, small amounts of bandaids, quetips, safety pins, sewing kit, aspirin, lip balm, pen and notepad with important times, locations and other guests' room numbers. I put everything in small back bagsI made embellished with the bridal couple's names and wedding date. We saw our backbags all over the resort. The dollar store was a great source for the items I needed. Have a great wedding!

I have never heard of giving out gift bags at weddings. I have heard of small, meaningful favors, but not gift bags.

You need to go to Walmart. Get as many white spongy comfortable bathrobes. Then you should put that inside, Walmart's pharmacy section will have a "samples" row that has the little bottles of most things. Stock your guest up with soap, hairspray for the women, razors for both male and female, give each guest a snack sized baggie and put in it a small sewing kit, a couple of safety pins that are a good size and a couple that are larger, Maybe a little roll of the TUMS that you can find at any convenience store or truck stop, and a small fixer upper of men's aftershave and women's spray scent.

That would be about the extent that I would give them, if you want to be more elaborate, you could also put in a nice choreographed note thanking the guest for coming to the wedding, Thank all the people who have made your wedding really something miraculous. It came out beautifully.

Goodness gracious you need to remember to thank the wedding planner, clergy and musician(s), etc. Finally your daughter should thank her new Husband and look forward to making him happy. You know? Oh, in the bags, how about a package of popcorn zipped inside a quart sized baggie. Anyway, I hope this helps. If you do a gift like this, it will never been forgotten.

I've never heard of a giftbag for wedding guests! Guess I'm old fashioned, but wouldn't a hand written, heartfelt thank you card be enough?

Seems like everyone is looking for a way to spend money because they read in some magazine that some second rate celebrity did it. It would be more meaningful to spend time, and not money on your guests?
