    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering what everyone was using to put their OOT bag stuff in. I've seen it done in both paper and canvas bags and was hoping to find out what the majority of you ladies are planning to do. I orginally was going to go with canvas bags and iron-on transfer a little monogram with our names and the date, but I wonder if people will even use this bag again...so I thought paper would be more practical I thought it would be nice for them to leave with something with our names and the date on it, but am hesitating now, worried if it will be used again after the trip. Just trying to weigh the pros and cons of doing this...

      I am probably doing canvas bags. We are putting our monogram on a tag and putting that on the bag rather than an iron on. That way it's customized, but not forever. Someone else is doing this too.
      You could also use the monogram image but take out your names and put the location.

        I am planning to do some type of canvas or straw bag, but I will also probably just do a favor tag with our monogram. I'm really leaning towards the straw bags, but I'm not sure if they'll be too small, but I wanted something with a tropical feel

            I am doing canvas!

            1. I rarely pack a beach bag so I assumed that my guests are the same way.
            2. A paper bag may not be big enough for what I plan to include
            3. Ideally it will be reused. Even if not, just seeign it reappear over the weekend is enough for me.

            i did canvas bags...everyone loved them and they were part of the gift and people used them the entire part of the trip. people are still using them as grocery bags, etc.

              I'm going to do a canvas bag with an iron on transfer. It will hav our logo on it, but not our names. It will just say something like Cabo San Lucas, June 2007. THat way it will be a reminder of the event, but won't have our names on it. I'm hoping people will re-use them, maybe as grocery bags.

                We also are doing canvas bags. I was worried about doing something with our names on it, but FI insisted he wanted them on there somewhere! So, we compromised and put our names on them really small, so people could still use them again if they wanted to- but people definitely know they are for the wedding.

                  ditto - i used the one monogram that had our names as the secondary focus, and Puerto Vallarta as the main focus. i hope people like them!
