Yes, I did have to do the minimum but for the bag I ordered it was only 25.  What I found during my research is that the cheaper bags had high minimums but the more expensive ones didn't.  I had contemplated ordering blank bags (since minimums don't apply to that) and either doing the printing myself or finding a local shop since those are usually per piece, and don't require a minimum.  So that's a possibility you can look into.

I can't say for 100% sure, but usually they only apply the minimums because doesn't pay to print just a few.  You should definitely call and find out about blank ones - the company is so nice.

Your bags are amazing, I hope mine go over as well as yours did. When did you give your bags out to your guests? I'm trying to figure out if I should pay to have them delivered to each person's rooms or do something like hand them out at the airport.

I gave out the bags at the welcome party the first night.  I had to buy water and snacks in the Bahamas plus assemble all the bags so they weren't ready immediately.  When I checked with the hotel about delivery, they said they didn't do it before guests checked in because there is always a chance that the room would change.  The delivery was in the evening which would have been after our party so it didn't make sense for us.  Also our resort would not hold them at the check-in desk.  it worked out well doing it at the party plus I got to see people's reactions as they opened them.  I wouldn't recommend giving them out at the airport as airlines are so strict now adays with carryons.  Your guests may already a suitcase and carry on and then the OOT would put them over the limit. 

 

I didn't do iron ons.  I ended up having them screen printed through the company I ordered from since the minimum was only 25.  I'm soooo glad I did it that way.  Sure it cost more, but as I learned with most of my DIY projects, there is trial and error involved - its no big deal when you're dealing with paper but if I screwed up a bag or 2 then it would have cost me more.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
