Oh my god - I didt even realise these existed! Now I have another thing to think about, I knew I should have experienced more weddings before I planned my own!

at this point, I'd advise totaling what you've spent this far and compare that against how much you were either planning to spend (or what you think is "reasonable" per person) and then decide on the beach towels. our bags will look empty, but each one has a HUGE value worth of stuff in it. and they'll get filled when guests use them to transport towels from the resort.
honestly, tissue paper is a good filler, too. I'm a bit on the side of your FI here - just try to finish them up and if you get more time (or $$$) later, you can go back to it.

So far we have, BBW caribbean escape pocket bac, Caribbean escape candle, wet ones, toothbrush and toothpaste (my brother always forgets his), 30spf, aloe Vera, Ben's bug spray, q-tips,tums, tylenol, aspirin, advil, imodium, tide pen, travel pack of Kleenex, band-aids, coffee, Cruzan rum, personalized travel mugs and gum.
I also have to type up a welcome letter, thank you card, an itinerary, map of St. John, and little notes for our vow themed OOT bags.

Thank you so much! This was an amazing help. We are going to do the monogram totes in recycled material, mugs, cards, band aids, flip flops (we are asking for size on our rsvps),Barocca, tums, and advil. Any suggestion on how to or companies that will make our logo or if we design it how to get it onto our totes... we are also thinking about doing up some bags for the children attending any filler ideas...

Biggest hit in our OOT bags, the umbrellas, looking at the weather forecast I saw rain and found colour coordinating umbrellas at the last minute and put them in the OOT bags the guests loved them and used them at least once a day while we were there!

I'm just starting to get items for our bags and found these great mugs. They were just delivered today and they are a really good stainless steel quality. I was a little nervous at first because the selling website did not have many reviews - but I'm happy to report that they are awesome to work with. Everything went smoothly & I got the mugs really really fast. I'm so happy!
They are come in a box of 24 for $56.99 & $15.50 s+h (set price for s+h and the box weighed 15 lbs). For my small group of 20 this low minimum purchase is great because customizing stainless steel mugs is very expensive with a 50 mug min. purchase most of the time.
I don't drink much on vacation but when I do have a drink I like it to stay cold & not get warm in the first 5 minutes. That and I know some of my guests drink coffee all day long (so having these mugs will be awesome for them).
They come in individual white boxes which I may put a ribbon around.

To personalize the mug we are putting these 2.25" waterproof stickers on the side. These are not our stickers but they are from the Esty company I purchased them from (link below). I measured it today and the 2.25" sticker fits PERFECT for these mugs.
Mugs & Stickers including S+H totaled $89.98 / 24 = $3.75 for stainless steel personalized mugs! Couldn't be happier
I hope this helps anyone who is currently on the hunt for a cool mug for their guests at a relatively reasonable price!
