I am doing gift bags for our oot guests also.  I do have the advantage of being able to make some homemade treats though, because I won’t have to travel.  I am probably going to look for reuseable shopping bags, and add some snacks and waters.  Maybe a few pieces of fruit.  Because you have a Destination Wedding, I would look for some local specialties, and add that to the bag.  Also, a schedule or a list of activities they may be interested in.  I saw somebody that bought bulk items and then repackaged them in little bags with homemade tags.  It saved a bunch of money, and looked really cute.

Weddingbee is a fantastic resource but I think you want to check out bestdestinationwedding.com  There are threads upon threads about Out of Town bags and the like there.  You’ll almost have too many ideas after browsing for 30 minutes!

One thing we thought was cute was making a word-find (free sites online to make it) with words about wedding, about us.

Depends what type of wedding you are having.  We had a beach wedding, so we gave everyone cheap plastic sunglasses, and we got beach bags from the dollar store.  We also got some sunscreen and aloe from the dollar store.  Lastly, we made coozies to put your beverages in while on vacation.

I was on a budget too and loved my dollar store finds!  Most people going to Destination Wedding on an island know to bring sunscreen, but if they burn they don’t have aloe so I agree with the previous poster about adding that.  I also found water bottles (the plastic ones you refill) and still see my guests using them now!  I also found a lot of ideas for Out of Town bags on bestdestinationwedding.com, as Jamiezilla mentioned.  I highly recommend it!
