    I'm going with hats! Actually I was thinking you may even want to consider visors. A LOT of people forget sunhats on vacation and one DW we went to in the Bahamas had these really cute visors and even though we got two (one for each of us) we're always fighting over them even now. They pack up small and they are very tasteful - navy blue with a little embroidary palm tree/beach and just the location. I love them!

    My second choice is towels - very luxurious and I'm sure everyone would love them!

    My concern about shirts is actually sizing. Trying to size people can be very tricky. You want the shirts to fit but you also don't want to offend people by giving them a larger shirt... even if that's the size they wear! Crazy? yes. True? maybe. But honestly it's such a fantastic OOT bag already I bet no matter what you choose it will be a big hit. What's the least expensive?

      I am torn, I would do both the shirts and towels...but I voted for the shirts.

      At my friend's DW we all got these hot pink t-shirts with the wedding logo and it was great to see people down the beach wearing them. You instantly knew that they were with the group.

      I like the idea of the towel cause it is something they could definitely use again at home. It would be a great keepsake.

        It Is Funny That You Asked This Question, Because I Am Going Through The Same Thing. I Want Hand Towels Because Towels Will Be Too Heavy, But I Can't Find Any For A Reasonable Price. Anyway... Maybe Hand Towels/golf Towels Might Be A Better Alternative. Please Let Me Know If You Find An Affordable Place. Good Luck!1

          We did hats - just plain red ones - and everyone liked them. A lot of people forgot that after a lot of time in the sun, you kinda wish you had a hat.

            I voted beach towels. We are going to get all our guests beach towels and are going to use a vacuum seal storage bag to bring them down so they don't take up so much room. Here is a link to an example of what those storage bags can do: https://www.spacebag.com/spacebag
            To me, the towels would get the most use.

            I love the idea of the shirts - except for the sizing thing. I guess you could send out a question with your RSVPs...

            But if the sizing is a pain, I'd go with hats - most hotels provide towels, and they are so bulky to pack and carry.

              I'm totally biased because we did towels, but they were a BIG hit! Everyone used them the whole wedding, even though the resort supplied towels... ours were nicer. They were heavy, but (and I think we talked about this) could you have them shipped to your WC/hotel? Since it is Hawaii, the company would probably ship there for you, and you wouldn't have to worry about carrying them. Might be a little more expensive shipping, but less stress. T-shirts are great, but sizing might be a problem. Your OOT bags sound awesome, btw!

                I was thinking about hand towels too but i have to say i asked a bunch of my friends (guests LOL) and they were like "who the F wants a hand towel?, what are we going to do with that?" i was like, hhhmmm - that is a good point! can't lay on it, can't use it to bath, etc...unless you are catering to a huge group of golfers - that would be perfect for them! Jenn did amazing beach towels and the place she used seems to be the most affordable i can find so far. here is the link Beach Towels by Cannon Wholesale manufacturer of custom embroidery beach towel
