I ordered some things for my welcome bags already because I needed to burn some FSA money before it expires in the new year. I got mini sunscreen bottles, chap sticks and mini first aid kits. The first aid kits are a little weird I guess, but I put way too much in FSA account this year so I figured what the heck... it's a good thing to keep in your suitcase anyway! I plan to add apsirin and tums or something like that.Vitamin C is a great idea and you can get a huge pack of Emergen-C at costco/sams. I think hangover cures are pretty common in welcome bags and I admit to having used them before after weddings! My welcome bags are starting to sound like a mini pharmacy...
I am also going to make little weekend programs with ideas for things to do and any scheduled events, and a little door hanger "Do not disturb... I partied all night at __&__'s wedding". Lastly, we are going to run through the market when we arrive and see what other little goodies we can find for the bags. Maybe some cheap souveniers or something.
What are yall doing for escort/place cards? I saw a few cute ideas online: mini drink umbrellas iwth tags tied to them, or maracas also with tags, or with a name in sharpie.
Anyone else going for the buffet? My WC said you actuallly get some of each item on the list for the buffet menus. My family loves to eat so I definitely want as much food as possible... It's $40 per person, only $10 more than the 3 course meal and you get way more food options. The risk is do you get a lot more food, or just a tiny bit of each choice? Did I mention we are a big food family?
