    So far I've purchased a 4x6 picture frame for each couple, about 10.00 each, and I'm going to add Tequila and a shop glass for the guys and maybe the pashmina wrap for the gals, for Cain's Ma we added a few extra stuff. So by the time it's all said and done,,, hmmm maybe an average of $20.00 per person. But remember were only having about 10 people attend..

        I'm starting to work on our oot bags and i think my fi budgeted for $50 a room. he always does highest possible cost so he knows but I plan on staying way under that.

        ok couple of questions

        1. we have a couple of guy friends staying in rooms. I wasn't going to make them a bag? Or should I?

        2. about the koozie's should I get one for each person coming or one per bag? for people that have already gotten married. does everyone need one and do people use them at all?

          Only a few people used ours in Mexico. But if you are going to do them, I would for sure do one for each person. I did one bag per couple, but put two koozies, 4 packets of Advil tow bottles of sunscreen, etc...

            I had the same question, since Paul does have some bachelor friends. I was thinking of doing something like this instead ... shoulder back pack, or maybe just not doing a bag at all and just giving the items to them in some other kind of bag (disposable).

              ann the shoulder back pack is cute! I like that idea! Otherwise I was thinking some sort of paper bag, guys don't care and honestly probably wouldn't notice.

                  Has anyone ever used SwellSweets.com - Unique Custom Welcome Gifts I'm not creative at all and am wondering if it would be easier to just have someone else do it for me.

                      I haven't actually outlined price yet, but from the prices I have looked at...it will be around $25 per couple. We are putting in cameras to take pictures of thier favorite part so we can enjoy their moments too, personalized tequilla shooters, candy, word puzzles for the plane ride, advil, pepto, and a few other things, I can't think of right now with out my notes :)
