The items that takes up the most room are the sun hats. I just came up with a cute idea that might work. . .
I am hoping to meet everyone in the lobby as they arrive (depending on how spread out this ends up being). If I do this then I can leave the hats out of the bags and just put them on Everyone's heads as we greet them. (kind of like a lei if we were going to Hawaii)
The resort will be putting the bags in everyone's room for me. I can still keep the hats not in the bag and just have them lay them next to the bag.
In playing with the bags I realized that the smaller bags might be better for the beach anyways (I assume (hope) everyone will be using them while in St. Lucia as beach bags). They have an almost plastic coating on them that will probably be easier to whip the sand off.
Thanks for helping me through this Ladies : )
I love the idea of sun hats so cute and greeting people in the lobby is such an amazing idea!!!
Welcome bags are the one thing I keep wavering on. I really want to do them, I just don't want to lug the stuff with me. I was thinking of doing something simple like a tumbler with a letter in it and some hangover essentials/candy stuffed in it.
What I originally wanted to do was a beach bag, tumbler, hangover kit, snacks and a beach towel but then I realized there is no way I'm getting all that down especially when b/w my wedding and honeymoon I need to bring 3 weeks worth of clothes. I thought about having my family pack some stuff, they don't live that close but I thought maybe I could give them the stuff at Christmas.
I've also thought about having a dinner party/get to know the wedding guests get together before we go to thank everyone and give them their gifts then. I know not everyone will be able to make it but then I'd be bringing less with me.
