Our Welcome Bags! Everyone LOVED them :)

Recommended Posts

Here are a few photos of our simple welcome bags. Everyone really loved them and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out and how easy it was to transport them. 


We only had a couple of items in them but the bag itself was a part of the gift as it was a cloth beach bad with their last name embroidered on it Here are the other items that we included:


1) Two mugs

2) Underwater camera for the excursion

3) Sand ceremony card with sand from the beach

4) Welcome Letter

5) Wedding Day timeline & timeline with map

6) Godiva Chocolates 

7) Gym class schedule from the resort gym (our guests really like to workout) 


Here are a couple of photos, I'll add more as I get them :)

Thanks! Our guests really loved that part as much as we did. We stood (both having a hand on the sand cermony frame) and each couple came up at the same time to pour their sand. Not a dry eye in the house ;)


Here's what the sand cermony frame turned out. I love it! You can see the sand that they poured forms the triangle on the bottom :)

Thank you!


Yes, the stickers are permanent and waterproof.


I purchased them from Esty seller DavetDesigns. She was wonderful to work with and customized the colors and everything that we wanted. The price was not bad either at $11.99 for 24 stickers (which included many many emails and design changes). I used the design from her proofs for our pre-travel brochure and some other items as well.


Here's a link to her site:

Here's a link to the Esty seller that I purchased the bags from:




They were $8 per bag, but we only gave out one bag per couple (or one bag per person for the couple of individuals that come on our trip). If you are interested in this bag take time to read my review on the Esty site. There were a few hiccups, but in the end because of those hiccups I got the bags for only $4.00 each! The closest thing I could find for a similar customized bag was around $22 per bag, so even at $8.00 I felt they were a good find - at $4.00 we were over the moon excited to give them as gifts.


My sister (21 yrs old) loved her customized bag so much that she is now using it as her purse.

We kinda already have our bags. Well i ordered natural canvas totes online from a wholesale place for 1.35 ber bag, and they are a good size and good weight of canvas. We are custominzing them as well. We got stamping supplies at michaels (yay 50% off coupons!!) so we are gonna stamp them with a cute love birds stamp and our wedding date. on the inside top seam of the bag we are adding the couples initals with a heart. all in purple ink permanent ink! i saw ones like this on etsy that were being sold for 7.50 a bag. i was able to make them for about 4. I think you may have misread my post though lol i asked where you got the mugs.. lol but i love etsy!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
