Speaking of friends sharing rooms, are you guys finding that you have to do a lot of matching up? We have some friends that are single going and trying to hook them up with people to stay with. Some of them don;'t know each other, so we are trying to base it on similar personalities/interests. I hope this works out!~

Hi Tamandrob,

 

My opinion is that you give one to each couple and one to each of your friends sharing rooms. We are spending a lot of money on the wedding and so I don't want to go overboard with extras. We will give out one OOT bag per couple containing

  • welcome letter
  • itinerary
  • guest list
  • white board and marker for door (only if I can swipe enough from the conferences I'm attending next year)
  • first aid kit (because they are so darn inexpensive)
  • one local treat
  • (beach toys for families with kids)

To cut cost I am giving one bag per couple but not to sure what to do? I am leaning towards individual bags for them but would like to know what everyone else is doing/thoughts?

I think my TA said another option is to do 3 in a room. They would need a junior suite. I'm sure this would save money, too. Does anyone have guests staying 3 in a room?

I have only had to pair the one so far most of the singles are booking with another person so that has worked out in our favor. I would go about it the same way interest/personalities. You also have to remember that they won't be spending much time in the room I know when I am on c=vacation I am just in the room to sleep. I wouldn't stress to much about it!
