@calgarybride2015 I would love to do a "welcome event" but we have people coming Saturday - Wednesday, so we might just try to meet each group that comes in and give them their bags.  Then maybe Wednesday do the bach parties, Thursday a short little rehearsal / group dinner, Friday is wedding day.

@MorganRene I don't think it's horrible to give them something fun to return home with. It's the thought that counts...make it easy on yourself and if having return tags is easier, then return tags it should be! 


Love over 50 is still LOVE!!!

Invitations out! RSVPs in

Us, them (bridal party), + 48 guests!!

I saw some funny sayings (which would be perfect for the group going)

I love a good TSA patdown.

Those tiny bottles of liquor don't count.

Hands off this is not your bag!

These clothes won't fit you.

 

I can't decide if I want to go the funny route, or do something related to the wedding.  

 

Would it be horrible if I just included them in the welcome bag, and didn't send them out early?  They could use them on the way home at least.

 

I had planned to use mine as place cards/favors but changed my mind. That's the only reason I am sending mine before as less to carry. You can totally put them in your welcome bag!  I can't decide between funny sayings or something tropical. I am personally not using our wedding info as I would like them to use them again.

 

Your ideas for a timeline during the week, in your other post, is great!  We are all arriving the same day so works good for us.

I'm so lost as to what else to put in our bags. 

We have 50 bags total and so far we have:

- sunglasses (for each person)

- personalized hand sanitizer

- Sudoku puzzle book

- Playing cards

- Starfish candles as favours

- bag of candy

- pack of gum

- Fan

 

I still think we need something more substantial or a bigger item, I was thinking beach wraps for women but don't know what for men. Also it's so hard to find a good price for beach wraps considering I would need 45 of them.

 

Any ideas what could make my bag better?

A lot of people are doing tumblers or mugs (we are, too).  Discount Mugs has very reasonable prices for double wall inuslated tumblers and mugs, or you can go the Dollar Store route $1 a piece.  I am getting the Discount Mugs (more reasonable than a bubba keg, but they are at least double walled vs. the dollar store).

I would go the mug or cup route.

Discount Mugs has great prices and a lot of options, I just couldn't justify the shipping cost (over $100) to Canada.  There is a lady on here that didn't have to pay the shipping, but not sure I would want to risk that.

To save money you could do them non personalized and get waterproof stickers made. There is a great lady on Etsy and if you decided quick could get them back in time. I think mine took about 3 weeks. Or make some yourself?  (really they don't even need to be personalized if you didn't want).

 

I just got the tumblers from Dollarama for $2 a piece but really wanted the bubba mugs!   Another Canadian bride said the $6 bubbas (from their website) turned out costing $11-13 each with all the taxes, duty, shipping, etc.

 

My only concern with beach wraps is if they don't fit some of the ladies??   I would go more generic, but that is just me.  Otherwise, awesome job! good luck!

If you are in the USA  Discount Mugs has great prices. I couldn't justify the shipping cost (over $100) to Canada.  EDIT: you are in Canada!  See what discount mugs charges you to Montreal.  I know a lady on here who didn't have to pay the shipping, but I didn't want to risk it!!! 

I just got the tumblers from Dollarama for $2 a piece but really wanted the bubba mugs!  But after all was said and done to Canada, one lady said they ended up being $11-$13 each!  We needed 45 too.

 

My only concern with beach wraps is if they don't fit some of the ladies??   I would go more generic, but that is just me.

Otherwise, awesome job! good luck!

 

Thanks!! I will definitely look into it. Will go to dollarama after work :)

I went to dollarama and I was successful in finding good $2 tumblers, they look good too. 

But now I am considering how to carry 50 of them. It will require a lot of help with family members I guess?
