    Hey ladies and gents I am trying to decide what and how to put something on the outside of my OOT bag.

    If I get it printed from company I should stay with one color for cost but if I do an iron on I could use more colors and print at home.

    I was also thinking of leaving it off all together so that my guests will reuse the bag even though they might reuse it with the logo/image on the bag.

    Please share your experiences! Thanks

    Cheers

      I used my logo (made by BDW member Sarah Sproullie) and our hotel name and wedding date.

      Everyone said they loved their bags - they definitely used them around the resort - I don't know if they use them now - I know I use mine and it makes me happy every time I see it!

        we used "W & M Celebration" instead of our names so guests may reuse them.

          I had my bags done from Vista Print during a free tote bag sale. I didn't put our names or anything on them since I know I wouldn't reuse a bag with someones name on it.

            I like this idea as it just like a souvenir bag that people would buy I think if you put your names all over it people will just put it in the back of the drawer - i think only parents and the bride and groom would appreciate ones with names on x

                I ended up working with BDW member "becks" (her company is Allurements by Rebecca) and we created this for our patches, which she printed up and mailed to me, and then I IRONED them on!

                Here's what we did:

                I figured that since this design only uses our monogram (which some people who don't know any better might just think are the initials for a resort, perhaps?) and it just says, "Ocho Rios, Jamaica", maybe our guests would be more likely to use it again. And the good news is, from what I hear, some are still using them to take things to the beach and the pool this summer!! Mission accomplished! :)

                  We left ours blank on the assumption that our guests would be more inclined to use them again if they weren't personalised. I guess it really depends on your crowd. I do like the idea of adding a very generic picture/logo with something beachy like starfish, shells, a sunset etc. I would re-use something like that, but not one with bride and groom names and a date on it.

                    We're using drawstring backpacks and leaving them blank. Not very beachy, but we have 13 guys going and only 8 girls, so we based the bag style on them since most of the contents are for the ladies.

                      We bought the hibiscus tote bags from Oriental Trading and then just made personalized tags for each bag. Like other previous posters, we figured people would use them again if they weren't too personalized.
