    I don't think it's tacky. Quite a few brides on this site have said they will hand out the bags before traveling. I'm going to hand out most of mine when we get there because I won't be seeing most of them until we're meeting at our house to leave for the airport (or the night before for those coming from out of town). At that point, I figure they've already packed & won't want to rearrange to fit the gift bag in their luggage. There are a few guests that are staying at different resorts and I plan on giving their bag to them early (even if I have to mail it to their house) since I probably won't be seeing them in Cancun until the wedding day which is near the end of our trip. If you have the opportunity, you might as well hand them out early.

      Thanks for your insight! I have less than 5 weeks to go so I hope I can put together enough bags.

      All the best for your wedding!

        This looks so awesome!! I wish I had the time to do something this extravagant. My bags don't look half as good! You are so talented. I am looking for some welcome letter info for Ocho Rios Jamaica. Our wedding is less than 5 weeks away and I feel so unprepared. I know I just need to breathe and take it one step at a time. Wish me Luck!

        Peace,
        Cris

            Your OOT bags look great!!!
            Did you get all your tote bags from vistaprint for free? Are there ever any coupons/deals to get a bunch at one time for free or cheaper... or is it always just one at a time?

              Yes, I got all my tote bags free before shipping (shipping for each order was just under $5 & I was able to get a sticky pad, notepad, pen & bag for that shipping price--which seems to be about as low as shipping goes on VP). I've never seen deals that allow you to get multiples of the same item free. I just tried to maximize the amount of items I could get for the lowest shipping price, and then I placed the same order again & again (they ship them together but you still have to pay shipping each time).

              I just added it up...about $25/bag. I didn't mean to spend that much, but I wasn't keeping a very close eye on my budget there...oops!
