    First of all, thank you to everyone in these threads for all of the ideas! They were so helpful in deciding what to put in our bags. We're excited to give them to our guests and we hope they enjoy them.

     

    We got the bags from Oriental Trading. They are the same material as resuable grocery bags and were super cheap. We love the bright colors and it allowed us to spend more on the contents.

    What's inside:

    CD

    Welcome Booklet

    Key Card Holder (idspecialists.com)

    Flip Flop Gummies (orientaltrading.com)

    Mini Frisbee (orientaltrading.com)

    Personalized Margarita Mix Packets (sweetwrapture.com)

    Underwater Camera (ecamerafilms.com)

    Personalized Double-Walled Acrylic Cups (discountmugs.com) Had an issue with the printing on these (the 'n' in Ken looked more like an 'm'). They reprinted the order for us twice (no charge) and finally got it right. A little bit of a hassle, but very pleased with the end product.

            Thanks, all!

            @sllefbvr - we are really happy with the cups. We went back and forth for a while on ordering them because of the cost, but they seem to be really good quality. We did have some broken/cracked lids when they arrived, but they are sending us replacements.

                    Everything looks awesome! The shout wipes and aloe were a great idea. Thanks for sharing. Any tips on making CD's? We're putting these in our OOT bags as well.

                      Definitely get the little gadget that helps put the labels on! My FI had one at work that we were able to use, but I think I saw one at Target for about $15. It was by the cds and labels in electronics. It made putting the labels on sooo easy and quick and they were perfectly straight. As for our music choices, we included our first dance, father/daughter and mother/son songs, then we picked songs that reminded us of the other and things throughout our relationship.  We tried to keep it upbeat, but have some slower songs on there, too.
