2. The custom koozies were expensive and took up alot of space and NO ONE used them at Dreams. They were still a cool idea and our guests said they'd definitely use them later, but if you're on a budget and trying to eliminate something at an AI you're just not going to use them much. At least, my guests didn't - most of them were drinking mixed drinks and wine, not beer. If you have more beer drinkers than we did it would be more useful.
3. Our guests all used the bags and raved about the cute monogram. We saw them every day at the pool. The ladies all used their pashminas and loved them (thanks Glenda!). The tylenol and immodium tabs got used. People loved the snacks we stopped and picked up at the Mega store- chips, chocolates, and candy. Most people at their snacks the day they got there.
We also got the little first aid kits at the dollar store. Surprisingly, almost everyone used theirs and commented on how handy they were.
I did include a Spanish/English dictionary, but only because I happened to run across them at the dollar store. People did say they looked at them, and I think they were impressive in the bags, but they're totally not a necessity. I think people liked the Spanish Words and phrases and the cute paper I printed it on just as well. The pics in the background of the paper were taken by Jeff and we told everyone that so they were impressed. I think it depends on how many you will need- if you need more than 15 or so, I don't think the extra weight is worth it. I can't remember how many guests you are expecting...
I really can't think of much that I would change about my OOT bags. My guests loved them and were so surprised and thanked us many times for all the fun stuff. I had a bunch of junk from Oriental Trading company that I didn't think people would use, but I saw people using the pens, notepads, and beach safes despite my worries.
Here are some pics of the bags all put together...

So far all I have are bags (got them at Old Navy for $8 each) and sunscreen (used my points at the drug store so they were FREE!!!!) I also plan to order travel mugs from discount mugs. The rest... who knows! I need some DIY projects to keep me on budget!
If anyone has any pics of their luggage tags, I would love to see them!
Bride and Groom plus 15 guests booked so far!!!!

Does anyone have any suggestion on wording for them? Normally you say thank you for coming....but they aren't technically there yet!
