Super cute bags!!

 

I too bought bags from Target... But also Paper bags from OT.com that says welcome to our wedding... Not sure what to do.. I love our totes, but they are big!  I may just lay them out on a table at our welcome dinner (1 per couple) along with the paper bags for each couple filled with goodies.

They will be here Tuesday, hopefully they are good quality!

 

Between the bags and towels an entire suitcase was filled, we are getting an extra bag each when we fly, but I think I'll need that for other "stuff", considering we are traveling for 2 weeks (honeymoon right after wedding week) 

 

What else are you using in the OOT bags?

Im sure they will be. The ones I purchased are pretty nice and Im sure made the same.

 

Oh wow.. Yes you have a ton to carry. I wanted to do towels but didn't know where to stuff them, luckily I never found any for a good deal.. lol

 

Travel Mugs.. Kleenex, Hand Sanitizer, Lanyards, Chap Stick, Gum, Mints, Crystal Springs water mixes, playing cards and a welcome letter and itenerary. You?

ahh the dreaded OOT bags lol  Okay, you ladies have forced me to start thinking about them and basically, I've come up with this. I am buying most of the things down in Grand Cayman because I want to add local flavor. I am nixing toiletries and the like.

 

From home:

 

Cartoon map of Cayman Islands and Welcome magazine with note from us, itinerary, etc.

 

Getting In Grand Cayman:

 

Tortuga mini rum cake (known for this!)

bags and tissue paper (their little 99 cent store is a few blocks from my hotel)

local saltwater taffy (they are known for this too!)

 

Regular & light Caybrew local beer

 

Might throw in nuts or something but that's about it.

 

short, sweet simple :)

I know your very crafty and creative when left to your own decives, and chancce are you've already come up with something brilliant in your dreams last night...but here's a final thought/suggestion.  I'm it could be neat if instead of the flat coral band if your created your own floral pattern using the coral and eggplant dahlia images that are on your invite and maybe use the purple ribbon that was just purchased instead of the burplap to create a two layered bellybandand maybe finish it off with a grey twine tie as shown:

You read my mind with this! But i was thinking of using the coral and grey flowers with the eggplant ribbon over top. or somthing along those lines anyway. But i also like that grey burlap.... i wonder if i could find some of that

Ive never come across this before.. i didnt even know there were brides out there that fuse their rings together. I guess that is something else to think about

Love your local flavor idea!we want to do the same, maybe grab some cigars and nuts one of the local shops on he way to the resort:) short and sweet. Dig it. FI won't let me add anything else to the bags lol, we want to get underwater cameras for everyone, but $10 a pop will put us over budget... I'm in charge though. Thy will end up in the bags!

I like this idea... then you dont have to worry about 'filling' the bags.. so you dont have to buy as much or haul as much down with you. But target??? what happened to the old navy bags?

Oh another thing thats amazing that you can only get in the caymans.... this sounds weird but its called big black dick rum.   lol... yes im serious. It comes in like 10 flavours but my favroite is eitrher the white or dark chocolate rum.    dark chocolate mixed with cranberrry juice tastes just like a chocolate covered cherry... so delish! I want to go back to the caymans just to get this rum!
