    ok so I was thinking instead of making personalized crap with our name on welcome bag items how about hawaii items. For example instead of personalizing the shot glasses give guest Tikiki shot glass, hawaiian key chains, hawaiin mugs, etc....make the welcome bag full of souveneirs...

    if i gave u a gift bag with hawaiian vs personalized stuff which would you perfer...now the bag will have our personalization on it (if i can follow anns instructions lol)

    i was thinking of ths b/c they came all the way here to hawaii i can save some money hawaii souvenirs (sp??)..and i save money lol lol

    thoughts?

      I do think it's a good idea.. it's like buying their souvenirs.. but I also think it would be so cool to see one of them drinking from a shot glass they got from your wedding..

        i do have some items like the mint tins and wine stoppers...
        i did not want to feel like i was over doing it by giving them everything that has our name on it lol
        i was going to do the shot glass with our name on one side and hawaii on the other but it was expensive

          What about a combination of both? Some personallized items and some Hawaiian souvenirs?

              Sherri, I was thinking of doing something similar, giving my guests things from mexico. Are you ordering the stuff or just going to pick it up when you get there? This is the only reason I haven't decided if I will do it because I'm nervous to wait until I get to mexico and then not find anything I want!

              But I think its a great idea, I'd like all the cool souvenirs!

                    I say do a little of each. It's so cute to get Hawaiian things and stuff from your wedding. Honestly I would do more Hawaiian things then personalized b/c I think people prefer souvenirs than people's names written on stuff. But that's just my personal belief.

                      Ya, I agree... a nice mix would be great. I'd personalize things that don't necissarily have to do with the location (e.g. a waterbottle, lip balm etc). I like the idea of personalizing items for the OOT bags, but it is way more expensive... I'm not sure that we'll do it for that reason.
