    So I am FINALLY going through our 4 camera memory cards and found the bag pics before we handed them out so here they are. Thank you to so many amazing women who had great advice and examples for me to pull from. I really wanted to give back to my guests for spending so much money and vacation days to be with us in Jamaica. If you have any questions about where I purchased items or sellers on ebay/etsy feel free to ask. 

     

    My guests really loved them and were so thankful for the beach towels (always ran out by 9am at our resort and the washcloths which our resort didn't have.) Also, the snacks were very handy for those 3am drunken munchies :) The cups were perfect because at the swim up bars they cups were SUPER TINY, so my 22oz cups were perfect! I think if you have the money in your budget, try to at least do something for your guests, not free stuff they can get anywhere and they will truly appreciate it!

        Looks great!  You have some good ideas..I didnt think about putting snacks in there but I am sure everyone loved it. Did the chocolate melt in your luggage?

            Nope didn't melt. I used some of my sons freezer packs that we use in his lunch box. They work perfect and as soon as we got there we took them out. The room was cool so I didn't worry about them melting once we got there.

              HAHAHAHAH.... I'm totally stalking my photog! So trust me be selfish, I am, lmao! The towel quality wasn't the BEST, but it definitely did the job. They weren't the most plush but I couldn't beat that price. They are regular beach towel size, 30x64.
