Palm Leaf shoulder bag?

Recommended Posts

I am considering these bags Palm Leaf Shoulder Bag : Unique Wedding Favors - Wedding Reception Favors - Bridal Shower Favors and was wondering if anyone knew if these bags sat flat on the floor or if they lean?

Odd question I know, but it makes a difference. In the pic it says it can fit a water bottle, but not sure if the water bottle sits flat.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

I fell in love with this bag on sight and made up in my mind to buy them from the very beginning. I received 35 of them a week and a half ago and was very disappointed with the quality. I'm in the process of returning them. I think they aren't accurately represented on the website. They are much smaller than they appear on the website and not well made. I was suprised at how flimsy they are.

 

To answer your question, they don't sit flat on the floor and would need to be propped up.

 

I bought samples of the largest Lauhala bag from the Ailana.com site and they were faaaarrrrrrr superior in construction, they sit up on their own and they're only $3.50 a bag as opposed to the Palm Leaf Shoulder bag's $7.49. BTW, the handles are on the short side, so you can't comfortably hold them on your shoulder. Needless to say, I just bought 35 of the lauhala tote bag and am returning the Palm Leaf shoulder bags.

 

My digital camera isn't working or I'd post pictures, but someone else posted pictures of the bag in this thread on pg 11 if you'd like to see them.

Love the bags, but I don't know if they lean! The picture on the web looks like it doesn't have a solid base, so I bet the water bottles would tip. Good luck!

Thank you for your response, the Ailana bag is the other one I was looking at. Which size did you get-approx 9"W x 7"H x 3"D) $2.50 (plain) or
(approx 12"W x 10"H x 4"D) $3.75 (plain)? I am trying to decide between the 3rd largest or the 4th one.

I got the larger one for $3.75. It's technically the same size as the palm leaf shoulder bag, but better constructed. I like that it ships flat, but can stand on its own.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
