    We are going to have many out of town guests come in for our wedding, so we are making "wedding welcome bags" , please give us any ideas or suggestions you have for what we could put in the bags. Preferably inexpensive items, we are on a budget with these bags. Also, I am very crafty if you have any creative ideas as well. I like also BagsQ clothing and messenger bags for girls...

    I found  mini Spanish phrase books for dummies and Spanish to English dictionaries to add into the OOT bags.  I found them for $1 at Target so they didn’t break the bank and I think they are a really cute touch. I am going to hit up Bath and Body works during their semi-annual sale, which I believe is right after the holidays and buy some hand sanitizer to add to my bags.  Also, I am going to add mini beach balls, which I will probably order from Oriental Trading

    There are so many great ideas on these boards. I keep adding things to my bags bc there are so many things that I've seen that I wanted to copy:) luckily my fiancé keeps me in check so I don't go too crazy. Gotta pay for a wedding too and not just bags!

      This is a great list! http://floridianwedd...mer-in-florida/

      1 - Gift guests with a kitschy way to send a postcard home (don't forget the stamp!)

      2 & 3 - Using cute glassine bags (and maybe some custom stickers?), add some tangy key lime candy slices and white chocolate key lime cookies to satisfy their sweet tooth

      4 - Water for the room is essential, and Zephyrhills is from right here in Florida (available pretty much everywhere)

      5 - For a healthier treat, include some delish mango snacks

      6 - flip flops are a fun touch

      7 - Stash everything in these eco-friendly jute & cotton bags... you can have them imprinted, but I'd add a sticker or tag instead so your guests can use them again & again

      8 - These travel-size tubes of sunscreen are really affordable when you order in bulk

      9 - Mmm, tangerine lib balm = perfect!

      10 - Guests can easily carry these practical bug repellent wipes everywhere

      11 - This Evian facial spray (perfect after a sunny outdoor ceremony) is a luxurious addition

      Awesome ideas on here! Mini beach balls is something I really wanted to do, I wish I did! I ordered everything from Oriental Trading (and I've mentioned before, Canadian girls watch the shipping fees!) RIDICULOUS. I had my stuff sent to my BFF in Boston and when she came to Canada she gave them to my Mom.

       

      -paper gift bag with initial B and our names, date, place

      -lip balm

      -mints

      -golf tees

      -shot glasses (they were more like plastic medicine cups) but hey, served the purpse

      -paper fans with seashells on it, I had these placed on all the chairs at the ceremony

       

      Everything had a sticker with B or our names and the place, date, in navy, my color. Shot glasses said Gracias!

       

      I also wish I could have added a little Spanish dictionary, or Spanish for Dummies, I think that would have been super cute and helpful.

          We are doing beach towels and underwater cameras. Plus, a survival kit

            I also bought a few boxes of Smashbox lip gloss at the Estée Lauder warehouse and added one lip gloss in each bag. These came out to be $3 each.
            By the way, I also got my Clinique summer bags from the Estée warehouse for $5 each and they go great with my beach theme wedding.
            I also put some of the stuff in Ziploc bags and will be adding the water in DR.
