I would suggest making OOT bags filled with stuff that is specific to Maryland. I went to a wedding in Baltimore this summer and our bag had crabcake mix in it (sorry, I can't remember what else right now). When my friend did bags for her wedding in Philly, she put in things specific to Philly: Hershey's candy, Utz potato chips, etc.

If you're going to have your wedding in Ocean City, you could also keep with the beach theme and I know you have plenty of ideas for that!

Shelley,

I did paper bags from ac moore (we were staying at a green hotel, so I tried to go with the whole green eco friendly thing).

I went to the local tourist place and got some brochures, then I put two bottles of water in each bag, my grandmother made cookies, and we put a printed welcome letter with info about the wedding weekend. They were simple and plenty since we still did favors at the wedding.

We also only gave them to people that stayed at our hotel, some of our family just drove in for the day.

here's the only picture I have of them.

it kind of will be local, but 2 hours away from our house, so some people will be traveling and staying... I guess I will worry aboutt hem last, but right now I won't make them a priority..

 

I do like making the bags specific to Maryland, that is a really cute idea!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
