    That is a good idea I will try that!
    Do you plan on using both monogrammed and blank bags? I have the same logo
    I didn't think of that but that is a good idea to do every other. I was just going to flip between both of those for the welcome dinner. I have 2 other ones to use for the reception for around the pool.

    Also, someone mentioned having bags printed. A knottie , can't remember tried this route and it turned out fine. I think it has to be fed into the printer one by one however.
    I tried printing my own out on the bags but it didn't work. The printer kept getting jammed!??

    Did you get clear labels yet? If so where do you get them from?

      8X10 clear labels are available at office depot. I used them for my invitations.

      I can't remeber what company it was that made them but they have a site where you can download templates for printing.

      I just found this site, what about getting one of those whole punchers and making your own, or with the prices of these ones, you could just order these.
      I think the clear label might work, I think I might try that this weekend?

      these might be worth it to just buy them, because after you spend the time to make them and buy the vellum, bags, ink, etc. this actually might be cheaper.

        Nice Christine! Those are really cheap, for someone like me that is not at all like Martha, this is probably going to work best for me!

          Natalie. I think they look great, but I do agree that they should be a larger size than the original because although all of us would be paying attention, I think that most wedding guest would not notice them the way we would. They look wonderful!

            Natalie,

            I think they look great!

            Are the bags just regular bags or are they some type of special bag?

              I just got them from Michaels craft store they were 29 cents each. I tried putting them in the printer and that didn't work out to well so I have been using velum paper but I'm going to staples today to see if i can get that clear sticker paper and see what those look like!
