This is my second time posting about a wedding hotel gift bag (here's the first time). I was so impressed with all of the thought and effort Ams and her now-husband Bret put into every detail of the wedding and this is no exception. After a long flight from Boston to Seattle, it was so nice to come into my room welcomed by this:
Or, more importantly, by this:
PERSONALIZED note! How nice is that? There's nothing like feeling welcomed after a long day of travel. (Also, as seen here, my college friends call me "C-Star" thanks to my old AOL Instant Messenger name. I pretend to hate it but I love it.)
Here are two people who love Seattle like crazy and were so excited to share the city with many out of town guests. The gift bag started with a schedule for the weekend as well as some basic wedding details...
...and the bag included some awesome local suggestions. Seriously have you ever seen a more comprehensive wedding welcome letter? From directions on taking the Clipper to British Columbia to Seattle's best hot dog, the bride & groom had their guests covered:
Since I hadn't eaten anything since Logan Airport, I was also delighted to see all of the tasty snacks included in the bag. The wedding basics (Advil & water, much appreciated on both Saturday and Sunday mornings), Seattle Chocolates, Boston Baked Beans for Ams' hometown, tea, cookies, granola bars, chips, and a Sleepless in Seattle "Do Not Disturb" sign. Plus lots of Skittles ("beast mode").
Nicely done, newlyweds! Hope you had the most amazing honeymoon. Let's do the wedding again this weekend?
