    I'm giving my bags out before everyone leaves. So i'm going to buy some 1qt ziploc bags and put a note of the airline regulations 3-1-1 in each ziploc bag. It's super cheap but also very helpful especially for the people who don't travel much. They might not realize these rules.

      I am going to have a meet and greet bbq at our house in late Sept or sometime in Oct. to give everyone their bags. They can bring the stuff down themselves.

        Danielle - I feel like I should know this and maybe I do, but what is the 3-1-1 rule

          Carly here's the link to the rule:
          TSA | Transportation Security Administration | 3-1-1 on Air Travel

          For carryons any liquids or gels must be in 3oz or less size containers, in a 1qt size ziploc bag, and only 1 bag per traveler allowed.

            I didn't know this rule last year and neither did my coworker. She had a whole bag of clinique make up in her carry on. Airport security pretty much threw out hundreds of dollars in make up. She was so upset, it was awful.

              For my sister's wedding, she created a cd of their songs and burnt individual copies for each bag. She also put seashell winestoppers in the bags. Candy, gum, chapstick, and sunscreen. What she did is when everyone who was going to be there for the wedding was actually there (which was the night before) We all had dinner together and she handed out the bags there and gave the bridesmaids and grooms gifts out as well. Hope this helps!

                I have 60 people going to my wedding. Are you giving out tote bags to each individual person or 1 per couple?

                      Since for the most part everyone is coming on different days, everyone will be there for the welcome dinner, which is the night before the wedding. So, I will be giving them out at the dinner, hope this is okay, even if they don't get time to use everything, they can take it all home and use it there!!!!
