I’m getting married in Mexico in 38 days yikes! Im also doing welcome bags. I’m not going food heavy since we are also staying in a 5 star resort with fully included and stocked mini fridge and 24hr all included room service. Here are the items in my welcome bags:

Welcome notes

Itinerary of wedding related event

Flip flop bottle openers (per request of my FH)

Package of tissues

Small bag of chocolate 

Bottle of tylenol




Playing cards bc our friends like to play games 

I think that’s it. Just thought that stuff would be useful on vacay. I would not recommend shipping to Mexico per reports of others and asking at my local USPS store. They said it is unreliable to ship there bc their customs take forever and then ur package arrives with half your stuff missing. I have had very close family friends offer to take a bag if nessisary I am hoping to be able to fit all my wedding day things in one bag and just pay the fees if I need to. 

Hope this helps! Good luck

I’m doing Tylenol/Advil, mini first aid kits, custom koozies (or drink cups, haven’t decided yet) some snacks, itinerary and a welcome letter. I’m going to be bringing most of it with me but will do a Costco run for the snacks once we get to Cabo. I was going to do sunscreen but I think we’ll probably just pick up some regular sized bottles at Costco and let everyone know we have it if they forgot, it’s super expensive to buy at the resorts. Chapstick is a good idea, I may add that as well.

I’m doing advil, bandaids, playing cards, nail files (for the ladies) koozies, lip balm, immodium, gatorade single packet, pepto, shout wipes, gum, aloe vera lotion, hand sanitizer and personalized sunglasses (found a site that does then pretty much for 1.05 each..and they will personalize the sides!)

We’re staying at a 5 star, all-inclusive, so I’m doing a beach bag with the mini first aid kits including advil, tylenol, pepto, shout wipes, aloe vera gel and hand sanitizer, plus adding aviator sunglasses, a deck of playing cards, an insulated cup to keep drinks cold at the beach/pool, and a sodkuku / activity book.  I also included sealable badge holder with wrist coils for people to put their room key and cash for tips.  Plus, a welcome letter, of course.

I will also have raffia fans for each guest at the ceremony, fun wayfairer sunglasses at the cocktail hour and luggage tags at the reception.

We leave in 17 days!!!!
