    Although I've had all of the items for quite some time, I finally put everything together to take some pictures of my OOT bags!

    For the ladies and couples, I made my own bags.

    The details for the bag are discussed here: http://bestdestinati....ot-bags-57739/

    For the single guys we got cooler tote bags (the brand was Liberty, I believe) from Amazon seller Blank Apparel. These were a little more expensive than the totes that I made but we only needed a few and my FI loved the idea. They can fit a 6-pack. For my FI’s teenage cousin, we got a matching drawstring backpack from the same seller. I believe they combined shipping for all of the bags which was nice.

    Here is a picture of the contents:

    In the bags we had stadium cups with our logo; puzzle books; a welcome booklet with resort map, schedule of events, etc; keycard/tip holders; and finally, wedding weekend survival kits with ibuprofen, antacid meds, pepto, personalized chapstick, shout wipes, aloe gel, drink mixes, bandaids and mints. We also added some pool balls and an underwater camera to the teenager’s bag.

    The welcome books and chapsticks are detailed here: http://bestdestinati....-so-far-57223/

    The keycard holders are detailed here:

    Here are the contents of the Survival Kits:

    I also included 2 postcards per bag that I had printed for free from Vistaprint. I forgot to grab them for the picture! I think I ended up paying about $8.50 for shipping and photo upload. Not too bad for 50 postcards!

    Overall, we'll have 25 bags for a total of approximately $350, or about $14 per bag. Not too bad in my opinion!

                      The bags are adorable and I'm sure your guests will love them even more because you made them. You should think about making more and selling them on etsy!
