I did one per couple or one per single or family, with the goodies inside varying depending on how many people it was for. Then some people (flower girl, ring bearer, groom) got their own bag. I figure usually a couple only takes one beach bag to the beach anyway (my bags were beach bags).

I used snapfish. It's a little annoying to use but it's been nice to have photos in one place!

This thread is so useful - I wish I would have gone through it all before! We are only 9 says from leaving. :(

 

And now I am panicked, because, while I kept receipts for the big items (like the bubba kegs), I ordered so much online and got so much at dollar stores I am not sure where those receipts are. 

 

I guess I have to start looking!

 

I only have a few bags though - 7 OOT bags (we distributed one before leaving), two big straw bags for my mom and MOH, and a couple gift bags for my dad and FI's best man. And everything will be done up and so on... hopefully we do not have any problems!

Thanks Jennifer8913 and agm04!  That is what I was thinking one bag per room.  I'm just going to do gift bags too, not beach bags.  Unfortunately, beach bags just aren't in the budget.  My younger siblings are going to deliver the bags, so I have been trying to figure out a way to make the bags ahead of time and have them distributed the the correct people.  Maybe names on the tags on the bags, I'm not sure.  Definitely do not want it to take up too much time.  :-)

I had business cards made at Vistaprint - just a cute design that had "We're so glad you're here! Love, Amanda and Chris" at the bottom, and enough space between the design and the printing to write each person's name in sharpie. Was very easy! we just tied them on the handles.

We are only doing one bag for room, but a separate one for kids (we only have 7 kids coming).

Some people used our bags, some did not. Some used a few items from our "for better or for worse" mini bag, which was small, but most did not. No one used our digital flip camera, but that was because we did not give them memory cards (duh!) for them. We had a few small items (like pens and sticky notes), and people liked our welcome/activity passport books. The biggest hit was DEFINITELY the bubba kegs!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
