Also, where is everyone buying their bags from?  I really wanted to get something they could use later as well but I feel like just buying gift bags.

 

Any ideas?  Can you tell me about the quality of them?

 

I went back and forth on this, but I ended up just buying white gift bags that I will put a sticker on and colored tissue paper and ribbon. Done! Lol I just felt my guests wouldn't end up using a beach bag as most would already have their own and I didn't want the extra expense. This was my inspiration:

I love this idea! If people aren't keen on buying bulky and expensive bags, these look so awesome!

I did the same with the paper bag! I ordered mine from the welcome bag company customized. I didn't want people to be pressured to carry around the bag I gave them and I'm sure people will bring their own.

Yup, I think you might have just sealed the deal with me on the bags :)

LOL Glad I could help! Post pics of yours when you're done!

Do you remember the name of the company? I am pretty set on doing my own, but I would like to see their prices! Thanks!

Great list!  My welcome bags will have a "wedding weekend survival kit" that will contain chap stick, aloe, sunblock, hand sanitizer, mints, Advil and tissues.  My mother-in-law is making us some super cute personalized koozies, personal coolers (holds a 6-pack) and nail kits for the ladies.  She is super crafty, so each item will have something to do with our wedding, but "Jamie & Andy" won't be plastered on every item so people can (hopefully) use them again.  Everything is going in beach bags we found at the dollar store.  We are also going to put something from Mexico (authentic candy or a souvenir maybe?) in them after we go shopping on 5th Ave.  I also made brochures on Microsoft Publisher that contains a thank you note, info about the restaurants, tipping procedures, activities on and off the resort and an itinerary for the weekend.  We're just packing everything and bringing it with us.  38 more days!! I can't believe it!

This is a great thread for ideas for Welcome bags!! Here is my welcome bag.  I got the bags from the dollar store along with the drink cups.  I bought waterproof labels for the cups.  I also made a hangover helper kit which had advil, tums, pepto, emergence C packets and mints.  I also enclosed a welcome letter, sunblock, aloe, bug off and a first aid kit.  They were a huge hit and everyone loved them!!!!!!!!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
