i personally am doing plastic PVC totes, only because my FI's uncle owns a factory in mexico that makes all kinds and shapes of plastic bags, and he offered to donate them to us so we dont have to buy any. woot woot to that! to make them more wedding-y, i'm just gonna make welcome bag tags to hang off the handle like angela did.

It was a surprise and much appreciated since we didn't buy any snacks.
When I looked into bags for our OOT bags, the nicer paper bags were more than the ones we used from cheaptotes.com that doubled as beach bags. They were easy to transport to Mexico since they didn't take up much space.
We paid 99 cents each and used iron on paper, but made our bag logo pretty generic.
We put our names and wedding date on a tag we tied onto them with their names handwritten on the back so we would know who to give them to.
I saw many people using them at the resort ... I don't expect people to use them afterwards, but they were nice to use for the beach, pool and shopping.
Our OOT bags with generic logos
(There are some contents missing from the picture, chips, pashminas, some other stuff I cannot remember right now):
I did use white plain paper bags I bought at Michael's for the BM and parents gifts and made sticker labels for them. They also got OOTs.
The kids got paper bags with stickers I made on them as well.
The GMs got canvas drawstring bags (from JoAnn's) and they were used as well. I never got around to putting logos on theirs but they did have tags
BM bags (the other bag pictured is an Environsax, they were rolled up in thsir gift bags):
So my advice is do what fits your budget.
People are not expecting anything like this, so anything will be a nice touch.
