    I think you should do one per couple and include items for a male and female.

      I am doing one per couple and then one per single..... I am sure most of the men will not want to carry around bright colorful beach bags :)!!! I read on here in some other posts that past brides have had the bags delivered to the guests rooms... which at most hotels can cost anywhere from $2-$5 per bag for delivery! I think that is CRAZY!!! If you and your fiance hand deliver them to each room I think it is a little nice gesture and gives you a chance to personally welcome everyone! It might take a few hours to complete but I think it is a nice way to say welcome and thank you for coming!

        Were not having many ppl so were gonna do 1 per couple and the singles will get their own. My sister will get one bag for her and her children with items in there for the kids.

          We are doing 1 per couple, but we're giving them out at our bon voyage party the night before we leave. This way I'll have 1 less checked bag to worry about, and it will have the information our guests will need when they land in Cancun, because we have a private bus chartered for them to get to the resort.
          There is no better gift that can be given than the gift of ones self.

            I am doing one per family and I still have no clue what to do for the single guys. We have 5 of them so Im open for ideas.

              Have you gotten your bags yet? I can't find a nice bag for a reasonable price. We also have 50 guests. I love the drawstring book bag idea, where do you buy them??

                1 per couple, singles and children get their own bags. For the single men I want to get some type of back pack.

                  I am a wack job, I am doing one for each person... I have lady stuff, mens stuff and kids stuff. I will do them according to each person. I will do for couples one with a first aide kit and one with a sewing kit. The kids I got jewelry making kit from the dollarstore that look amazing, puzzle books, card games ect... I have spent about $350 for 25 people..

                    I just bought some really cute beach bags from Wal-Mart on clearance for $2 each! They might even be marked down further now. Almost every Wal-Mart I have been to had plenty and I bought 50 of them!

                      We are doing one per couple, and singles (including non-co-habitating couples) get their own, even if they are sharing a room.
                      We're married! Jamie
