        Thank you so much!  :)  I have enough material for 36 bags, but I'm thinking I'll need more than that.  I'm trying to come up with a solution to that problem right now!  I can only order the pet screen in 25 foot rolls, and I really don't want to have to buy all that ($90) for just a few extra bags.  I'm considering buying something for FI's single guests - like soft sided coolers or something.  I'm doing one per couple (or 1 per single person), but I'm thinking the single guys aren't going to be overly attached to this bag.  Haha.  Otherwise I'll probably just find something decent to buy for them.  I'll be in the thick of studying for a huge exam when RSVP's start to roll in, so I need an easy alternative!

           hmm... I too figured our single guys wont carry around the bags. So I purchased blue reusable totes and "welcome to our wedding" bags from Orientaltrading.com, I'll decide later which we will end up using for the single guys.. Maybe for the single guys you could find those burlap bags or plain bags?.. or a paper bag? (either white, tan or in your wedding color)  With an extra goody item just for them?..

            Burlap bags are a good idea.  I was thinking maybe something like this.  http://weddingshop.t...ooler-mens.aspx  But of course those are more expensive.  We'll see - I like the idea of a throw away bag with an extra goody!
