Does anyone know if they give the welcome gifts at check in or if they're placed in each guest's room? Also, is it proper etiquette to give one gift per couple? What about rooms with multiple guests that aren't a couple? So many questions! Hopefully someone can help:-)
I just got back from my wedding at the Suites. You have a couple of options... the front desk can give the bags out on check-in, you can deliver them, or Nicole/Tiffany will deliver them (they offered to do it, not sure that they always make the offer though). Originally, I was going to have the front desk do it when everyone checked in, but Tiffany recommended against that. She said that she would deliver all of them. In the end, I ended up bringing all of the bags to their office (which is right off of the lobby), and I just handed the bags out as our guests arrived. We had 41 people and 21 bags. I made all of the bags the same so that it was easier to give them out, so singles did get 2 of everything. I just thought the added expense was worth not stressing over who got which bags. When you get down to the wire, anything you can do to reduce your stress will be very good. I was planning to welcome all of our guests anyway when they arrived, so this worked perfectly for us. I spent about 3 hours in the lobby, and I saw everyone check-in.
