    My mom found this website that had several cute favor ideas for beach weddings. I think we're going with the tote bags, Frisbee, purel wipes, chapstick, playing cards, aloe, and a cheap Spanish phrase book.
    "Honeymoon package":Sunshine Honeymoon Package
    Tote bag that reads "All you need is Love", $15.50: Sunshine Tote Bag "All you need is Love"
    Frisbee, $3.45: Sunshine Frisbee Flyer "Love is in the Air"

    Also, for those wedding shoes:White wedding flip flops: I Love You Flip Flops

      I am giving 1 bag per couple or 1 per single person. We are planning to have everyone meet for a welcome dinner or drinks the first evening and we will hand them out then. I have or plan to purchase the following for my bags:

      Bags from Oriental Trading Co
      Suntan Lotion from Dollar Tree (actually smells good too!!)
      First Aid kits from Dollar Tree
      Small bottles of Tylenol from Dollar Tree
      Packets of Immodium from Sams Club
      Chap Stick from Sams Club
      Snacks from Sams Club
      Travel Candles from Michael's Crafts
      Beach Towel from Meijer
      CD of music
      Flip Flops (Pink Old Navy ones for ladies, brown ones from Kohls for guys)
      Beach Balls from Oriental Trading Co
      Pink Emory Board nail files for ladies from Dollar Tree

      I know there are a few more things I am forgetting but all my OOT bag things are at my parent's house...

          I found these cute personalized cocktail packs to put in your OOT bags. They have margarita and cosmo mix as well as coffee and teas. They will personalize them with your name and wedding date. I thought this was really cool idea. I've attached the url and hopefully I did it right. If not, the web address is Personalized Wedding Favors, Bridal Shower Favors, Wedding Party Favors, Decorations, do a search for wedding favors.

            Just picked up "Spanish Phrases for Dummies" in the 1.00 bins at Target. So cute!
