We're planning to purchase the actual bags there (we have 50 people that have booked with the travel agent and another 10 we're expecting to) so I think it will be cheaper to haggle with the folks at the flea markets down there as opposed to buying off Discountmugs.com or killing myself searching around for affordable bags! LOL I'd like to get bags people might actually use again and the ones that I've seen here that I liked were more than I wanted to pay for 60 of them. I'm hoping to get some bags that say "Cancun" or "Mexico" on them.
We're also wanting to get some small bottles of tequila that folks can have in their rooms (we might do one per couple, not each bag), throw in a little recipe book with tequila drink recipes, and then any other items that are representative of Mexico...not really sure yet will just depend on what we see. We're going down about a week before the wedding and staying at a hotel in the Hotel Zone (non all-inclusive) for 4 nights and then we're going to check into the Excellence 3 days before the wedding. There are like 3 different flea markets not far from the Hotel Zone that I've heard brides have gotten great things from for their bags.
My fiance, mom, one of my bridesmaids and one of my hostesses are all coming with me when I go early...that way we can shop for things to put in the bags and then assemble the bags down there.
I want to go to your wedding! lol.. How have you gotten soo many people to book already?.. ) Oh and I'll be moving to Atlanta around next May!.. I visit there every other weekend since my FI lives there.
That's a great idea to purchase the bags once you get there, so you wont have to worry about transporting them! I too wanted nice bags, but settled for reusable tote bags from Old Navy since they fit our orange and pink theme perfectly! Love the tequila and drink recipe ideas!.. Our resort is all inclusive and all the rooms have mini bars, I was thinking out buying drink books or DIY a list of what the resort offers.. Still debating. I like that yall are going early, I'm sure you will be able to find a ton of goodies!!.. I want to go to Mexico, I've never been out of the country, but FI said we had to pick at destination he hasn't been to a bunch so we found Punta Cana that no one in our families seem to have heard of before.. lol..
I can't wait to see how your OOT bags come out, and all the goodies you get! Don't forget to take pictures. )
