    I was waffling too and ultimately decided yes to OOT bags and so far it's been one of my most fun projects to do. I ordered 50 canvas tote bags from VistaPrint. These will be printed with the logo I designed below on them. Found a great coupon on retailmenot.com and got 50% off and free shipping on these. Yay! Then I will be filling them with: - welcome letter to guests - postcards I created on Zazzle.com and a pen - plastic tumblers with straws from discountmugs.com - Oh Sh*t Kit: (shout wipes, emergen-c, advil, pepto, alka-seltzer, band-aids, aloe, hand sanitizer, chap stick, tissues, altoids) - customized matches with our names/wedding date (this is so guests can light their wish lanterns on the beach after the wedding) - a little bag that will have graham crackers, a marshmallow and chocolate so guests can make s'mores at the bonfire the first night, which is when I'll be giving the bags out. logo for tote bag: 700

    CUTE LOGO!

      Super easy! I just made it in MS Word. I first Googled free fonts and found one I liked, then downloaded it. This one is called Dreamland and for some reason it looked Jamaican to me. :) I also Googled images of purple palm trees, found that one, and just added it to a blank word doc then typed Jamaica below in my new font and wedding colors.

        Did you gals make a bag for each person? Or did you make one per couple/one per family?

        we did one per couple (for the couples), and then one per person if they were singles traveling together.
