    I am so happy to find this thread. I have been struggling with ideas for the Welcome bag. My trouble is that it is a small wedding and most items are coming in stacks of 30 or 50! ha! I did find some cute tropical flower hair clips that change color in the sun from Del Sol. I love the idea of Spanish for Dummies book, and the aloe vera gel, pepto etc.

    Does anyone know if you can find reasonably priced biodegradeable sunscreen in the US to give to the guests? We are doing a Tulum excursion, and this might be nice to provide to everyone before hand.

      I think destination weddings should definately be something useful on the trip there for people. One couple had flip flops for everyone AND koozies with our names on them. it was great and got lots and lots of use.

        Hi Ladies... I wanted to share some info with everyone.

        My sisters had a wonderful surprise bridal fiesta for me and they gave out these beautiful maracas (one per guest) as the favor. I think I am going to order some smaller ones as favors for my wedding since they looked so nice...and....they say "Mexico" on them.

        I called the vendor and there is no way to get specific colors but for the price you can't beat it: $1.95 per pair if you order over 12 pairs.

        Here is the link -
        Amols' Specialty - Catalog - Traditional Maracas

        I can't figure out how to post the pic but if you're interested let me know I can email you the pic of the ones from my shower. You'll be able to see all the colors. My sisters tied little tags on them that said" "Shake it High, Shake it low...Kirk and Kim are getting married in Mexico"!

        PS: The site also has cute little sombreros to place on sauce bottles- the 2.5 inch ones are super cheap. I am using them to put on mini tequila bottles.

        Hope this info helps!

          We had lip gloss for the girls and cigars for the guys...and everyone LOVED the cigars! (even the girls...more than the lipgloss:-))
          I love this idea Simistar We wanted to have a ciger roller but too expensive. This works out better

            We ordered personlized travel mugs ( not as expensive as it sounds maybe $2.50per mugs) They have a little picture of a palm tree, our names and our wedding date. This way everyone knows who is with our party. We are handing them out at the airport....

              Paige2010 I am getting the glow in the dark mugs from here: 14oz Nite Glow Beer Stein Mugs | Custom Printed Plastic Stadium Cups with Logo (if we have extras we're going to keep them for the reception at home)

              and the beach totes from here: Business Tote Bags , Imprinted Tote Bags - TOT05

              I thought they were reasonably priced

                We are doing OOT bags that will be personalized with each guest's name and our monogram embroidery (it will cost me $15 per bag but we only need 12... so after thinking for ever I decided it was worth it). I'm putting beach towels, koozies, chap-stick, playing cards, tylenol, 5-hour energy drink, a couple of protein bars, first-aid kit, bottled water, a couple of gossip magazines/newsweek type of reading and a welcome brochure. For favors - women will get pashminas and guys - cigars. I hope my guests will like it...

                    Believe me -- the cigars will be a hit! :-)

                      I am doing pashminas for all the ladies (thought it would be nice in case it gets shilly on the beach at night) and cigars for the guys. I bought personalized tags with our wedding date and a starfish on them that I am going to hang from ribbon and tie around the pashminas. I hope it looks cute!
