    What's up everyone?? I sure wish I would have came across this site months ago.

    Well, I am getting married Friday, August 1, 2008 in Atlanta, GA.

    I am in the process of working on my OOT bags. Any GA peaches around that can give me a suggestion as to what is found in ATL and not found anywhere else I can't think of anything.

    Also, I have the slightest idea as to what to put on the welcome letter.

    I'm so glad I found ya'll when I did!!!!

          The welcome letter is a good place for hotel info, restaurants at the hotel, Agenda for guests (if you have one) Maybe some fun facts about why you chose your location? A lot of the additional stuff only applys to out of the country weddings. Try this: Get a blank sheet of 8 1/2x 11 white paper and fold it into 3rds. You can sort of "chicken scratch" a rough draft and see what looks good and how much room you have. If you have too much room left, and have all the info you can think of on there, try adding some pictures or fun fonts to take up space :) Also, another bride on here did the whole back of the welcome brochure a "meet the guests" section. She had a little blurb about each one and how they knew the bride and groom. Good luck!

                  I'm not from Georgia, but I just looked it up on Wikipedia and peanuts and pecans are also from there. Maybe you could get little bags of sugar pecans and some salted peanuts for the OOT bags? Maybe you can find little bottle of peach flavored whiskey down there too!

                  When I think of Atlanta, I think of Coca Cola. Maybe those little baby cans of coke?

                    I was going to suggest something Coca-Cola as well!
