Online Source For Totes (Canada)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a good website to buy totes for OOT bags? (hopefully under $5/ea)  I've been hunting around but I want a bag large enough for 1-2 beach towels too.  Exchange rate from US is killer these days so I'm hoping to find a company in Canada.

I searched pretty high and low for these when I was looking for OOT bags, but all I really found was companies from outside of Canada and pretty low quality/smaller bags. I hope you have better luck!! I ended up waiting until wedding chicks had a 40% sale and then buying my bags through them.

Are they nice and large? I still have some time to work with.

I used Deal Rack but it's US. You're in Toronto - you know it's super easy to get a US shipping address so it saves a lot. I got mine for $3.60 each and they're a pretty good size. I'll post a link later tonight. I found a place right in Lewiston NY so just over the Queenston Bridge that you can use as a US address. With the issues with my daughter in law now being a royal little (insert nasty word) and asking us to not send things there anymore, I had to find a way to send things to the US but be easy to pick them up. I know the exchange rate totally sucks, but sometimes when you look at the cost of things here and how much shipping is, you're still ahead of the game by buying in the US. It just depends what it is.

Weddingstar has a few totes and they're actually on sale right now. Most of them are still a bit pricey but at least it's a Canadian company.

 

I also know some brides who used vistaprint

They aren't large enough to fit two towels. They are a decent sized tote, but I doubt large beach towels will fit in them. I haven't seen many of those large style beach bags since we were buying ours with the purpose of making them our OOT bags, but i'd imagine they will run you up quite a bit more than $5. For some reason tote bags aren't cheap! I've even seen crappy quality ones for the same price I paid for mine and I atleast got to customize mine and they are nice quality

Does it have to be a tote bag, or would a beach bag be ok? I think you may have to go that route if you want 1-2 towels to fit into them. Maybe search for that instead on google.... that said, I got my bridal party beach bags from La Vien Rose for $3.99 each and they were great and easily fit 2 towels. They had about 6 colors and after the fact, I should have done one per couple because everyone raved about how awesome it was to pick us out based on our beach bags lol....  

 

That said, I got ours at an outlet mall, so regular price would probably be way way too much, but maybe worth checking out?

I was searching all terms, beach bag, tote, etc. I'm thinking I might have better luck in stores. We shall see.

 

And you are coming into winter, so some of those places may have them on clearance. That is probably why I got mine so cheap. I would have gotten them late 2014.

Ive been on the hunt for this as well but its so expensive and if not its a bad quality. Weddingstar recently had this on 60% off sale so I ended up getting mine for like $ 9 originally $28. Its pretty good quality and perfect size for the beach. Personalizing it cost additional 5 bucks and only allows you one letter initial. Im planning to DIY our monogram instead.
