We recommend if you choose a reusable tote, keep the design simple so that guests will want to use it later – i.e. use a creative symbol instead of an elaborate description of your wedding weekend.

Alcohol

Nothing gets a party started like a few libations – include them for your guests to enjoy as they get ready for your day. (Don’t forget to add a mixer, a bottle opener or a corkscrew, if needed!)

Small Souvenir

Give your guests from out of town something to remember your wedding location by – whether it’s a vintage postcard, a seashell if you’re by the beach, or some other small trinket they will appreciate.

Hangover Cure

Last but not least, be kind to your guests and give them some help to recover from the big day. Include a “Do Not Disturb” sign for their hotel door and maybe a sleeping mask. Sunglasses also provide relief from the harsh rays of the sun the next day.
