    Hi everyone,
    My DW is in Jamaica in March and I'm trying to put together the welcome bags to have in everyone's room once they arrive. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I should put in them? I'm already thinking some kind of snacks (perhaps Jamaican themed) and candles, but other than that I'm not sure.....

    Thanks!

      I have been thinking about this too. I'm currently gathering ideas. I decided that I would give everyone a maraca to bring to the ceremony to shake during our first kiss, but I am also putting one or two of these straws for fun.

      Then I will do aloe and chap stick w/ sunblock and I'm not sure what else.

        The maraca idea sounds fun, I think guests would love it. I've also been playing with the idea of personalized embroidered towels, but I'm afraid they might get too expensive. Usually there's a minimum order but I'd only want them for hte bridal party..... Once I think of more ideas I'll let ya know!

          I know I really want the towels but they are a bit expensive. I talked to an embroidery guy in the mall and he said if I brought him the towels he would only charge $6.00 for the embroidery, but I don't know because it will still be a lot of money for a quality towel.

            My OOT bags include: lip balm, playing cards and dice, tissues, personalized cups, flip flop notepads, travel candles, flip flop gummy candy, personalized matches, and not sure what else yet. There are a ton of threads on here about what people are putting in their OOT bags. Check out some of these for ideas:

              Those OOT bags sound like they'll be great. I like the flip flop notepad idea.

              Thanks for the links!
