    I've been looking for an alternative to beach bags or beach totes for my OOT bags (A) to save money since I have a large party, and (B) I really don't feel my guests will resuse a beach bag with our names and wedding date on it.

    Not knockin it at all, just basing this off my knowledge of my family members and friends.

    I found these two sites: Click the image to open in full size.

    Click the image to open in full size.

    Larger size bags are available if you have larger items like beach towels or T-shirts.

    For you DIY-ers out there, it would also be a pretty easy project (and even more economical) to just get a stamp made from an etsy seller and stamp on the bags.

    Just thought I'd share

    P.S. Wedding Favors - Wedding Accessories - Wedding Party Gifts also has some nice 16 and 22oz. stadium cups with lids. Not sure how the prices compare with discountmugs.com, but I know quite a few ladies have had issues with discountmugs.

        I ordered my OOT bags from the first site you posted! I got them a few weeks ago and love them...I also got the tissue paper and ribbon from them too. It came out to around $7 per bag and they're super pretty. Our resort gives beach bags in the rooms so these were a good alternative for us.

          Awesome. Which color scheme/artwork did you go with? I thought the tropical skyline and the tropical thanks were so cute.

            We did the apple green bag with white writing and the monogram design. I also added the turquoise and turquoise paisely gemstones tissues paper with a turquoise/blue/green ribbon. I hope to do a planning thread and will post pics then.

              Good call! Nice ideas... both the bag. And those stadium cup lids would probably be a very good alternative to a koozie. I might go with this option. THanks for sharing!

                    Those bags are really nice. I may order some for my bridal party gifts. Just fyi though, for anyone looking for reasonably priced tote bags, Dollar Tree has some that are really reasonable for $1. I purchased 50 the other day and am surprised by the quality.

                      Really cute. We ordered tote bags from Oriental Trading. They have flip flops on them which is a nice design. They were very reasonable. The bags are not big enough for towels or t-shirts though.
