I finally finished by welcome bags! Yay! Thank you to so many girls who posted theirs and I got ideas from. This site is the best! If anyone wants any info or templates, let me know and I'm happy to send it to you.

 

Girls are getting pink and white tote bags and the guys are getting yellow and white. If a girl is bringing her husband, they're just getting a pink one. If a guy is bringing his wife, they're just getting a yellow one. You get the idea.

Tote Bags
 
I attached a welcome tag to everyone's bag which I had made from Etsy.

Inside the bag, I put a petal fold with inserts inside. They included a Welcome Letter, Things to do in Mexico, Wedding Weekend Itinerary, Groomsmen Itinerary, if applicable, Bridesmaid itinerary, if applicable and a Social Media card with our hashtag.

Welcome Card
 
Also inside the bag, I did three separate bags with stuff in them.
Bags
 
I did a Sand, Sun and Fun bag and I put "For Better or For Worse..." at the top of it. We did a logo so I put that on there as well. The bag included Bug Spray (the things that look like pens), playing cards, aloe vera, sunscreen, crayons for our coloring book which you'll see later, and chapstick with SPF.
San Sun And Fun
 
I did a So Fresh and So Clean bag and I put "In Good Times and Bad..." at the top of it. The bag included a lint roller, tic tacs, tissues, hand sanitizer, shout wipes and gum.
So Fresh So Clean
 
Last bag was a Wedding Weekend Survival Kit. I put "In Sickness and In Health.." at the top of it. It included a recovery kit sack, which had advil, Tylenol, pepto, alka seltzer and blowfish (a hangover cure my fiancé swears by). It also had a First Aid kit with bandaids, etc. and it had a Spanish to Go mini book which I found online.

Also inside the tote bag are a Crossword Puzzle about us, a Map of the resort which I put where all the events are, a key card holder, a koozie and a coloring book.

Then I'm getting chips in Playa and putting them in there too, even though the hotel is all inclusive.

 

Hope that helps someone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Sorry some of those are upside down or sideways. I'm not very good with this site. Haha!

Great job on the bags! I never thought to include bug spray and a lint brush.

Where did you find the bug spray?

Thanks for sharing.

    Those look great!

    Are you planning to include anything in  your luggage for customs?

    Thanks everyone!!

     

    @acw271011 Thanks!! I got the bags from Ebay, but I saw them on another website too. If you want me to try to find it, let me know. I'm happy to! I think they were about $3/bag. 

     

    @AyeWatSoon I got the bug spray at this site - http://www.anypromo....nitizer-p680363. I paid $180 total for 150 of them, which included my logo design on them, shipping, etc. 

     

    @kjb123 I am actually taking everything down there. Nightmare. I know. I have divided everything up and I have two other people taking some since I can't take it all with me. I checked with my travel agent and my wedding coordinator and they said I shouldn't have a problem getting it all in, especially since it's for a wedding. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.

      These bags are wonderful! My fiance and I are still looking to finalize our gift bag ideas and this site has been a tremendous help!

       

      Where did you get the plastic bags that you are putting the goodies in and where did you get the labels to seal the bags?

       

      Thanks in advance!

      @KJS3323 Thanks! I got the clear plastic bags at Michael's. They're by a brand call Celebrate It and they were 6.75"x9.75". You can buy them online too. Then for the toppers, I just designed them, printed them and used a paper cutter to cut them. I'm happy to send you the template if you want it.


      I attached the templates I used for the toppers. You can remove the logo and do whatever you want to them, but at least it gives you an idea of how I did them.
