I order from Vistaprint all the time for work……and I know I’m not yet engaged……but I figured I’d take advantage of the free tote each time I order business materials, thus costing me nothing in the end….
What I’m wondering is…..should I get each girl a tote with a different pic on the front? They also have some “bridesmaids” totes, the one I was interested in say’s “Bride’s Crew” with a place for the person’s name. It’s a tattoo style heart with wings. Very cute. But I don’t know if I should get them those, will they use it after the wedding? What do you Bee’s think? Should I stick with just a monogram with a different style for each?

I think the totes sound really lovely, but it just seems unlikely that the girls will use something that says “bridesmaid” once the wedding is okay. I got my MoH a tote, but I just had it have her initials – plus I gave it to her as a gift right before the wedding, so it would’ve been silly for it to have said “bridesmaid” at that point.

Wait, what happens if they can’t be in your wedding, or they change their name (marriage?). Then you’re stuck with monogrammed totes. Awkward. And I wouldn’t want a tote that said bridesmaid on it. I say wait and just shell out the cash for them when you know for sure who can and can’t be in your wedding, they aren’t that expensive anyway.

I got my bridesmaids totes that had their first initial on it, and didn’t say bridesmaid anywhere (I wouldn’t carry a “bridesmaid” bag ever except on the wedding day). I got them all the same design (it was cute! ;), but I like the idea of getting different designs for each girl that you think they’ll like!
Question on the free ones, though… don’t they limit your design choices, and print their logo on it? I only spent a few dollars on my Vistaprint totes; I think that’s worth it to keep a Vistaprint logo off!
