big destination wedding
Posted 02 October 2008 - 12:05 PM
I'm just reading through people's posts about their "out of town" bags and I really want to do one of these too now!
For our wedding we're inviting 90 guests, about 70 will be travelling from outside France (England, Wales, Canada, US, Italy to name a few). Can anyone recommend something to make guests feel special on their arrival without costing a fortune?

Plus, gift bags are smaller, 30 canvas totes take up one very large suitcase on their own.
DIY would save you $$ and look like you put a lot of thought into it... a hand written welcome is nice too!

A little gift bag with a welcome letter in it and maybe a couple of beachy goodies, and a spanish phrases for dummies book (if I can find them really cheap). One bag per couple or one bag per single person. Hopefully that won't cost too much. I'm not including any drinks or snacks since we're staying at an AI so everything is available and free anyway!

I bought my Personalized paper bags from Oriental Trading-48 of them. I'm giving one per couple. The extra bags I gave to the single people (I'm giving condoms to the guys ($1 section of Target)lol .
For the kids I bought a colorful paper bags from target and I fiiled them with kids stuff from Michael's Dollar bins or dollar tree.
I made my Welcome books out of recycled paper bags- I printed information, cut and pasted. The bags are small so you can't stuff too many things in them, which keeps you from going crazy, or does it?! lol
- Inside the OOT bags I'm putting:
- First aid kits-DIY lable
- $0.90 Banana Boat sunscreen
- lip balm with my DIY label (bought the lip balms wholesale)
- mosquito repellant towlettes (box bought at Office Depot)
- Spanish phrases for dummies at target,
- Starfish bath fizz's (dollar tree),
- Mugs were $100 for 100 with my monogram on them (ebay).
- My best friend is baking cookies, which will go inside the mugs in a baggie. Key holders
- 3 Post cards (created on Vista Print for $5 shipping)
Shop around, you'll be amazed at the bargins you can find.
