    wow, Italy!Those are great ideas for OOT package! I was in Montepulciano a few years ago - what a beautiful place. Are you getting married in a vineyard?

      No, we are getting married in the town square at 5pm and then walking to our reception at the other end of the town with 3 strolling musicians playing traditional Italian music. I can't wait!

          that sounds soo cool!!! that feels very "italian"! I was in Siena during a festival with a parade through the streets and everyone was out in their doorways etc cheering and being in a happy celebratory mood.

           

          I can so picture that for you!

              We are planning to do something similar, The wedding is in Mexico, so we plan to send out luggage tags, a Corona or two, some Mexican candy, along with typical OOT bag stuff with a letter sayinf how excited we are that they will be joining us.

                I think that I'm going to have a simple wedding ceremony and reception, since it's extremely expensive to add on ANYTHING! Our guests are spending thousands of $$$'s to come to our wedding, so we are going ALL OUT on their favors and OOT bags. I'd rather get them something that they can use during their trip AND when they go back home instead of decor that we pay for but can't take home with us....get the picture?!

                  Packing and customs have some limitations & were at an all inclusive which makes getting snacks, food etc. kind of silly since they can get snacks or bottled water for free. Instead, I put together a little (quart sized) survival kit that has some goodies like tissues, mini-lint roller hand santizer, chapstick, sunscreen etc. in it. The idea is they have these toilitiries if they forgot them at home but they could also use them for another trip. I bought a lot on sale and made my own toppers so I spent less than $90 for 24 of them. They are too casual for favors so were handing them out ourselves at our Welcome Happy Hour the day before the wedding when most people arrive. Were also doing little favors too at the wedding so between the two of these things I think that's plenty. We are also asking for no gifts - which should help the financial situation for those spending money to arrive.

                  thanks for the ideas on what to include - i think it's worth doing to let people know how much you appreciate the time and money they spent coming to see you get married
