Don’t make your guests prowl airport souvenir shops for a take-home knickknack. It’s bad Southern hospitality! To make sure they remember the wedding and its charming host city, send them off with a gift bag of trinkets that are all Charlotte themed. If they want more of these darling and delicious items, they’ll have to come back to visit.
