    I am very pleased with my creations and favor ideas for the female and male guests of our wedding.

    I resized the pictures so I hope they are not too small to view. 

    First my OOT bags. I did not want to spend alot of $ on the bags themselves. I did not want them to be embroidered with our names on it as I know our guests would not use beach type bags again if our names were on it.  I thought then about nice gift bags. Well, all the ones I found either were cheezy or did not have my color I was looking for. I then came up with the idea of creating bags using plain gift bags. I found my color and I was so excited to go at it.

     

    I bought the pearls, silver ribbon and the sparkly cardstock paper and the bag at the dollar store. I think a bag with all the goodies came out to maybe $2 each. I just used a glue gun to place everything and I used our extra monogram stickers and will be writing each person's name on the inside of the tag.

    The contents of the bags are as follows. I did not feel each guest would need things like hand sanitizer or advil etc. as most guests bring that themselves and the resort has suntan lotion etc in the rooms.

    Each guy will get one of these personalized bubba kegs. These are a must!

    For the kids, I will have bags of their favorite character eg. Hanna, Spiderman, Lightening McQueen...and enclosed I will have coloring books and games as well as these!  love these!

    I also am going to give crytal nail files and I made some matchstick packages from a template of one of the lovies on this site.  We will be having a cigar roller during the reception and I will have these on the table next to the Roller.

          I bought my bubba kegs at Canadian Tire. They go on sale in Aug/Sept.

            Everything looks great.  We also got bubba kegs for our guests.  How did you do the personalization on your bubba kegs?

                  I personalized the bubba kegs with stickers I bought from Staples. I put everyone's initials and the Canadian Flag near the keg handle. I don't know if it will stay on but I had no other ideas...plus I put a jay-cloth dabbed with dish detergent in a ziplock bag in each keg - that way users can wash their kegs.
