I wouldnt use it as a purse or anything but its DEFINITELY nice enough for guests to use to take down to the pool or to the beach. And for the single guys, I am still giving them each one of these but of course they wont use them. They can give it away or chuck it since it was so cheap!!
In the bag, I am putting some water, maps, a welcome letter, some pesos for cab fare since I am not providing any transportation and then maybe some chapstick, chips, salsa, and our favor cd that has some songs that will be played at the wedding.
Nice bags. How much were they? Oh, I see. $1.00. I'll have to go looking.

Thanks! They were $1.25 per bag (Hobby Lobby, on sale), and 75cents worth of transfer paper each. So if you don't figure in time, or what I paid for the monogram, about $2 each.

I used my Lumapix Photofusion software to add my names onto the corner of the monogram Aylee made- talk about a HUGE PITA! Definitely have Aylee just make your monogram the way you want it the first time around...Jeff decided at the last minute he wanted our names on there.

And for the flowergirls - not 100% I like this, I was going to get them a smaller bag - but I think I have extra of these.

Ann, I think these are soooooo cute! I love the idea of doing the flowergirl bag. I agree that I'm not 100% sure on the font, but the idea is perfect!

lol, I did the same thing! I was trying to think of other ideas, like making one for me that said "bride" and one for my mom and his mom...He thinks I'm crazy!

By the way Ann- did you get your pics?hijacked.gif

I did!!!!!! I was so curious I even looked at them while I am at work. GASP! I can't wait to get back to the hotel and look at them. I think I will get Leigh to make an album for me.

Okay, so those of you that have been around for a while know that I'm a moron (like asking how to print the name and address on the custom luggage labels... duh, you slip the paper inside each one!!!)

 

Anyway, so, here I am again not understanding. The iron on transfer... how does that work? do you have to get someone to print iron on transfers with your design? or is there a special company that makes it? Or what?

 

The bags look great, and I'd like to do this, but I don't understand how.blush2.gif

no problem - i definitely didn't know anything about DIY projects before this DW! you just buy the transfer paper (I got mine at Office Depot or something), and then print your design on it like a regular piece of paper (has to be ink jet I believe, at least the paper I used). You do have to invert your image first or they'd come out backwards! the paper came w/great instructions.

 

anyway, then you take the paper, lay it down on your bag, and iron it on! quite easy actually.

 

that's how i did mine anyway.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
