    @Carlicardenas I was debating on the out of town bags too for a while. I gathered all the information (what I wanted to put in the bags, cost, etc) at the end I have decided not to do an out of town bag for a few reasons.


    As much as I love them!and they they are super cute, I feel the are kind of a waste of money for me. Everyone coming to the wedding have been travelling for years so they will automatically bring the items I would have put in a bag and I am sure none of it or very little of it would have be used or thrown out in Cuba.


    So I have decided we are going to give them:


    -Tumblers (with my monogram I had designed on it)


    -Room Key Holder


    -Bright Sunglasses (I found a great deal oh DHGate, I personally love traveling with cheap sunglasses when i go to markets or explore in case they get broken or stolen )


    -Oh Shit Kit!- Band-aids, alcoholic wipes,  Advil, pepto


    -Hand Sanitizer


    Over all cost I am looking at spending will be about $6 per person


    Plus I am going to make wine charms (6 per bag) and give them at the wedding as a thank yo (all my friends and family are big wine drinkers or always have larger parties)

      @Carlicardenas  I have debated the same thing, it doesn't take long for the cost to add up.... I love the idea but am just afraid of the things being a waste.... We're doing tumblers and I'll probably fill it with a few things, and attach a luggage tag or room key holder.  I plan on doing bags for the bridal party, with beach towels and some other goodies.
