3) Was there any certain items that your guests really used a lot, or really loved?

I'm just curious because I love some items that I'm including, but every once in a while I wonder if the guests will actually use it or if it's just a waste of money.

Sarah, you included Spanish dictionaries, right? Did your guests use them often? I LOVE that idea, but it'll be a lot of extra weight/money and I'm trying to decide if it's worth it!

(And yes, I know I'm way ahead of the game! lol)
I ended up only putting a few things in the bags due to last minute budget problems: a Jamaica tourist booklet, welcome letter, wedding timeline, free Jamaica newspaper from the airport, mini sunblock, the favor, and some mints. We put the parents, and bridal party gifts in each person's bag to make each bag unique since we did not have a rehersal dinner. We sent out luggage tags 3 weeks before we left for the trip. Everyone really liked those. Suprisingly, the guests really loved the mints and I should have put more candy in the bags because the candy for sale at the resort was pricey and people really appreciated the few mints. Customs really did not check the bags coming in, so we could have brought more food items.

people seemed to love the bags, the snacks, and the sunscreen.

 

I could have done without the koozies. I didn't see anyone actually use them.

So far I'll be spending about $20 - $25 per bag (including the bag itself), not including some goodies I might get at Costco when I get there. There are a few things I've really splurged on which added to the cost.

I wish I would have included my newsletter with the welcome bags instead of mailing..most people didn't read it and I spent a lot of time on it. People loved ALL the snacks...we went to Costco once we were there and filled the bags. They also loved the candles because of the slight smell sometimes in your room. I also used iron on canvas bags and my guest used them all weekend.
