     I purchased the bags from discountmugs.com for $8.54 each (for 25 of them). They double as a beach bag and cooler bag (how cool!). I designed the front of the bag using Word. I wanted to make it wedding-ish, of course but did not want to include our names because I wanted to have the option of selling extras (on one of the many destination wedding blog websites I have stalked for the past 8 months).


    Of course, I blinged it out a bit by gluing rhinestones on the front and added cute labels that read "To Have & To Hold...& To Keep Your Drinks Cold." (chuckle chuckle). Clearly I had way too much fun with these bags. The other goodies included:


    Welcome Book/Meet the Guests

    My invitation RSVP cards were mad-lib style so I included a copy of everyone's RSVP with their photo and how they know the bride and groom. This was a last minute add that I really loved (and hopefully it helped everyone with names/faces)!


    Room Key Card Holder

    I attached these to the inside of the bag by gluing a safety pin together (so no one got pinched if it came un-done) and clipping it on with the handy-dandy heart shaped retractor clip. :) These were made out of badge holders I purchased from securityimaging.com for 60 cents each (the badge retractor reels were 65 cents each). Of course I added some personal touches like the cute "vowels" (see pic) in the shape of a heart.

    Our guests really did seem to love these and used them (which of course made me the happiest bride everrr)!



    Of course, I had koozies, I mean what is a destination wedding without them? I purchased these from kustomkoozies.com and made them custom with my heart design that I put on the bags. I also added a rhinestone to the heart (I couldn't resist) for a touch of bling. :)




    Oh Sh!t Kits

    For these I bought little first aid kits that were only $1.00 each and removed the label and added my own (which I designed on Word and printed on to name badges/tags). As you can see, I included bandaids & cleaning wipes, Pepto-Bismol, Excedrin & Gatorade packs.

    "In Sickness & In Health" 

    For cuts or for hangovers or when Montezuma attacks, 

    Find what you need here and know that we've got your back!



    Scavenger Hunt Disposable Cameras

     I made several different check-lists & the top read:

    "Use your camera & scavenge around, 

    Hunt for the pictures that need to be found. 

    Shoot away & complete the list, 

    Find the moments that we may have missed!"

    To make these, I purchased bulk disposable cameras online from . I then took an outline of the paper cover and scanned it into Word. I did my designs and words inside of the layout and then deleted the outline. I created a second Word document and flipped the outline so I could print the outline and the wording on each side of the paper and cut around the lines without it showing on the final product. I used an exacto knife to cut the holes. I then folded and attached them to the cameras using tape and glue. Cutting neatly is not exactly my specialty, but they were still cute!

    Not pictured, I also included underwater cameras in both of our parent's bags. These were passed around the pool and should make for good pictures (I haven't developed them yet!)

        You really have some great ideas! I looked at those very same bags on another site (but they were in orange). Your guests are going to feel so spoiled!

          Wow, your stuff is awesome.  What do your bags say in the heart shape?  That is adorable.  Do you have templates for any of your stuff that you could share?
