However, I was a little disappointed because i thought it would be so fun for people to open doors and have their bags...
I definitely agree that the extra $3 per room ends up being a useless expense. Rebeca (New WC) said it's basically a tip for the people delivering them. I asked if I could just get a room list from the front desk, so that we could deliver them personally -- a great way to say hello, and welcome -- and she said she could definitely arrange it.
Agreed, though. It would be nice to have the surprise awaiting in the room.

-- Fun Welcome Basket Idea:
I bought a bulk pack of tiny shells from Michaels and a spool of purple thread (my accent color). My BMs and I are going to lace one shell onto a necklace / Bracelet length thread and turn each one into a "wish chain." The idea is that you make a wish on the shell, and then you knot the thread on, and when it breaks your wish comes true. It's cute and romantic, made a very cheap and easy addition to the wedding baskets.
