If you're currently stumped about what favor to gift your guests after you say "I do," take a cue from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding goody bags. Yes, that's right—even nuptials of royal standards call for personalized parting gifts, and it seems landing an invite to the wedding just wasn't enough of a privilage (not bitter).

The royal newlyweds gifted wedding attendants with beige and blue tote bags, printed with their initials, wedding date, and venue. Business Insider reports that each goody bag includes a chocolate coin encased in gold (also with the couple's initials), a bottle of water, a magnet, shortbread, and a 20% off coupon for Middle Ward, a gift shop in Windsor.

However, not all guests got to get their hands on a Harry and Meghan-inspired tote. The couple previously announced that they planned to welcome a highly selected crew of 2,640 locals to witness the wedding and carriage procession from the grounds of Windsor Castle, and these lucky folks were the only ones bestowed with the take-home treats.

According to the Kensington Palace statement, 1,200 of these lucky individuals, from a diverse range of ages and backgrounds, were nominated to view the wedding IRL by "nine regional Lord Lieutenant offices." The rest of the 2,640-person crowd was pulled from various organizations, with 200 people coming from charities that the couple holds near and dear, 100 students attending from two nearby schools, 610 Windsor community members, and 530 people from The Royal Households and Crown Estate. Talk about quite the wedding cheer squad.

Even though the pair's A-list guests and royal wedding family members won't get to snag one of these commemorative totes (sorry, Prince George), they can boast getting a first-hand glimpse of Markle walking down the aisle and sharing an ultra adorable moment with Prince Harry, which may or may not rival a custom piece of chocolate.
