    Hi Ladies,

     

    I am getting married at the RIU Palace Peninsula in November 2013 and everyone has suggested I get welcome bags for arriving guests but I am so overwhelmed and don't even know where to begin. What kind of bags, what should be inside, how big should the bags be, should it be per person or per couple (we are having 50+ people arriving)  and how should they even be presented (do I have to go to every room and leave it there, or just have the staff there hand them out to the guests that are walking in?) Any help will be so appreciated.

     

    Thank you

     

    Alla

      Yes it's completely overwhelming at first! I ordered these bags for .99/each (they're now .88 cents!!) they're very thin so they should be light enough to bring to the resort - my plan is to stamp a design on them or do an iron on transfer. Hope that helps! Also definitely check the Dollar Tree for great deals! I am doing one welcome bag per couple. http://cheaptotes.co...tote_bag_8.html

        Thank you for that, what are you putting into the bags? I know it has to be personal but  I have to make 50 ppl happy with gifts!

          I went a tad bit overboard with the gifts but some of the things I got were: tumbler cups w/straws, first-aid kits, sunscreen, aloe, pepto bismol, hand sanitizer, chap stick, flip flop playing cards (oriental trading), flip flop bookmarks, note pads, pens, bottle openers, koozies, advil, gum. Oriental trading is a great place to look too!

              I bought my bags already personalized from Vistaprint. I'm pretty happy with them. I'm making bags "per room"... so basically by couple, with some add ons for those with kids. Mine are not yet entirely complete, but I'm putting the following:

              Aloe Vera, mini-first aid kits, advil, tums, aveeno moisterizer (got for free), gum (in my wedding colour), Emergen-C packet, One-Step Sanitizer, single "moisterizing Wipe" (forget the brand name), Tumbler w/ straw per adult, chap stick. The kids are getting activity books w/ crayons.

               

              I still have to get my "brochures" together, which I've started on Vistaprin; that will have details for the week (any group events), details for the wedding day. I also want to put in  (somewhere) a list of guests with a space where the room # can be written... so friends can find each other. :)

              I also want to pick up cards.... I'm open to adding a bit more (maybe sunglasses?) But only if I find an amazing deal. Waiting til the end of summer. Haha!

               

              Good luck! This is a fun part, that you have full control of (only stress is what you put on yourself, so ENJOY!)
