Have you ever heard of "Guestiquette"? It is a new term that is popping up amongst those planning weddings or other large scale events. Guestiquette is just a way to keep your guests, particularly out of town guests, informed and provide them with information and even a few "treats" to make them feel welcome and a part of your wedding day. It's all about going from out of towner to guest of honor.
This can be done in many ways and at different stages in your planning process. Many couples are creating wedding websites to keep guests informed from start to finish. Then when the wedding comes, it is nice to make your guests feel really welcome with a gift bag or basket.
Guestiquette bags or baskets can be produced on the cheap or can be quite extravagant and fancy, all depending on your budget. Here are some recommendations of items to include:
Often times, these packages can be made in advance and labeled with the guests name(s) and delivered to the hotel so they may provide them to guests upon check in or even delivering to their rooms prior to arrival. It is best to double check with the hotel first to find out their policies. McMenamins is very familiar with this and will be more than willing to help out!
