I think the mugs are fun for the resort, you can have them fill your cup each time you refill your drink. And the koozies are great long-term gifts!

Im spending about $25 a bag I think? Probably depends on the size of your group and we have a pretty large one so we wanted to keep it around $1000 total.

I would agree that it depends on your budget and the size of your group. We've got a fairly small group (20 people or so) and I've set aside about $1500 USD for ours.

This has been so helpful!!! Thanks for all the info. :)

 

I was also thinking of putting hair ties for the ladies to help with the wind. And magazines to read on the beach - one per person that is personalize to what their interests are - then people can pass them around when they are finished. Cheaper than books and a little extra touch. Also thought about including agendas for the events. When to be where - where the bride and groom will be for pictures, etc...

Great to know which items your guests enjoyed receiving. We are thinking of doing the large mugs but cannot find them. Anyone from Canada that has ordered these and can give me some suggestions where to get them from?

Thanks!

Thanks so much for posting this! I was so excited to be doing OOT bags, but as our party keeps growing (which is a good thing) I have had to narrow down the items I can put in the bag and the type of bag to use to cut down on costs. Thanks for these helpful tips.

Is anyone putting scented candles in the bag for the guests' rooms? I read on another thread that some girls did this, along with matches. I found candles at Michaels for $.39 each! Would it be a problem to pack the candles and matches in our luggage? If anyone has any thoughts that would be great!
