Our Welcome Bags! Everyone LOVED them :)

Recommended Posts

These are fabulous! I like how you put an hour for the guests to do their own thing before dinner in the program for the wedding day... I wasn't sure what to do with them at that point while I get formal wedding pictures.

 

Great deals on the Mugs too! Really well done!

are you not doing a cocktail reception after the ceremony? Isn't that the time filler? I like the idea of the hour off too!

Thanks! We did a few fun group photos right after the ceremony and then did the cocktail hour (we really wanted to enjoy the cocktail hour with everyone), after that was the "freshen up" hour and then we all met for dinner. You'd be surprised how exhausting it is to be in the Mexican sun at 3:00pm. The little time out before dinner was much appreciated by everyone - Although some ppl just kept the party going at the bar - which was fun to hear about later.

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!

This is such a great idea!! We used stamps on our save the dates and I would love to do bags, using the same image, but thought it would be too expensive. Where did you get canvas bags for the price? I love your idea so much!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
