I just wanted to share my welcome bags and give you a breakdown on the price. I found the image/logo inspiration online and had my graphic artist brother in law replicate it as best he could.  He did a great job and loved the way it came out.  Then I bought iron on transfer paper at michaels I bought 4 packs that came with 10 sheets so a total of 40 sheets.  I found my bags online at bagiva.com for a great price and they are very good quality and a great size for a beach bag.  Here is the link https://www.bagiva.com/100-Cotton-Economical-Tote-Bag.html.  Then I just printed the image on my transfer paper on my home printer and ironed it on the canvas bag and done.  They came out great and I saved some money doing the bags myself.

 

Michaels Transfer Paper 4 packs of 10 = $29.97 (I used a 25% off coupon each pack was $9.99)

40 Canvas Tote bags from Bagiva with shipping = $48.75 (they sent me 3 extra bags)

Total for 40 bags = $78.72 so $1.97 for each bag

 

I saw some bags on etsy going for $4 to $10 a bag so if you want to save some money definitely go the DIY route it was very simple.

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
