Poll: what bags to use for OOT

Recommended Posts

Looking at my budget, I would rather spend more on Photos so I am looking for places to cut some corners and would love some input. One way I have found is to use Party gift bags instead of drawstring back packs. I will be making about 30 of them so the difference comes to between $120 -$180. I know in the scheme of a budget this does not sound like much but that on top of doing my own hair and make up and some other things will add up. Thoughts please? Party bags with Labels on them of the picture we were going to use on the back packs or Drawstring back packs screen printed The stuff we are putting in will be travel sizes: IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH: tummy meds Headache meds sunblock aloe FOR BETTER OR WORSE tide to go hairspray chapstick lifesavers nailfile TO HAVE AND TO HOLD Koozie foR RICHER OR POORER: Water proof $ holder FOR AS LONG AS WE BOTH SHALL LIVE Picture frame

I think party bags are a great option! They are affordable and you can totally make them cute with labels, tags or whatever. If you put a sticker with your logo on it as you suggested I think that would be perfect. Here's a pic of some cute bags from one of my favorite BDW planning threads: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/76600/mwise17s-planning-thread-diy-heavy-pic-heavy

 

I think as brides we get caught up in going all out because we've seen some pretty awesome examples, but in the end your guests won't know any different or feel like they're missing out, they'll just be grateful they got anything at all!

I found plain canvus tote bags on Ebay for 12 for $19.99 and was just going to make my own stencil out of freezer paper, and pain on my own "logo". I am making around 12-15 bags so for me this will work well... have your bridesmaids over to help paint them!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
