Thank you gift for guests

I think it's amazing that you're also organizing a cruise. You and your guests are going to have a wonderful time!!!

I agree with those who have said the OOT bags won't be missed. I plan to do something very similar to what you're doing

I love the idea of putting a welcome letter in their room. Possibly in the note you could say something about 'as a thank you for coming, we invite you to join us for a cruise and have made a donation to ....' Obviously worded better, but you get the point. Without spending much money (depending on your ink / printing situation) maybe you can even print a whole welcome book (many examples on here) with information about the resort, area, schedule of events, games, and include the information about the cruise & donation. It could look really impressive & welcoming without the expense of the OOT bags. No matter what, I definitely don't think your guests will be disappointed, you are going above and beyond. And while I tend to do the same, my fiance' keeps reminding me, it is not our job to spend a lot of money on the guests, they are coming for us and getting a vacation--they will be grateful for whatever we give them.

***Disclaimer: I'm not saying that OOT bags are junk! I'm just saying that so many people get junk at weddings (i also got a tiny silver-colored bell once... what was I supposed to do with that??) that they will probably not miss having a gift that you can hold in your hand.
