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:

Now Larimar 8/9/13; I married my best friend! 29 of my closest friends and family celebrated with us! Couldn't have wished for anything better :)

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

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

      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.

      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!

          I got my gift bags from Oriental Trading. Something like $12 for 50.

            This is awesome ... I love the list and I'm having a small intimate wedding but want to make it special for those who travel to spend in our beautiful day.

              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!!!!!!!!
