personalized, yet not personalized?

Recommended Posts

Hi girls,

 

So, I am going to do OOT bags for our guests, except I want our guests to get the most use out of the potential contents of the bag. So, for example, I don't really want to have our names or "logo" on things the guests can re-use (e.g., the bags, the mugs, towels, etc). But we will probably put something like the destination and date on them, or just a picture of a palm tree or star fish. Has anyone else done this? Do you think it would look weird?

I meant to add that we will be putting our 'logo' or names on the smaller things that are disposible (e.g., lip balm). It's just the larger re-usable things I am concerned might look odd

I agree with your concept which is why I was thrilled to find the OOT bags from Target but if you want to keep it fairly generic then I would leave the date off too that way 10 years from now when your nice bag still looks good folks wont know its 10 years old and that is less personal too. But definitely throw your logo all over the other stuff if you want!

i agree- i would not re-use a bag with someone else's name on it.

 

i just created a large oval shape with the words "Big Island, Hawaii" in teal and printed from powerpoint - it is really cute.

 

i am working on them on Monday and will post some pics then -if you like it i can send you the file! :

I also agree we want everyone to use them once they get home so I do not think we will be putting our logo on reusable items.

That's what we're doing. We had 4 monograms created for us...two have our names and two just say "Cancun, Mexico, 2009"

 

We're using the one WITHOUT our names for the bags, travel mugs and the other reusable items. We'll use the one with our names for matches, tissues, etc.

We thought the exact same thing. Our OOT bags are bright colored mini mesh beach bags and we decided to leave them blank. If we are spending the $ for each guest, and they have to haul them back to the U.S, I definetely want them to be able to get the most use out of them!

That'd be great if you could send me the file!

I'm glad I'm not the only one. After reading all the great ideas and seeing everyone's creative logos, I was beginning to think I was crazy for not... but then again, I hate the idea of spending $ on things that are re-usable and making it non-reusable by stamping our names on it. I agree with Alyssa -- I wouldn't reuse something with someone else's names on it either. Thanks for the input!! :)

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
