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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
