@June232012:  We are having a vow renewal in Mexico at an all-inclusive too.  So there really isn’t much to bring for Welcome bags-but I was thinking of some items like getting an insulated tote bag, lip balm, and suntan lotion, and maybe a cute luggage tag?

@June232012 – are you shipping favors etc ahead of time?  Or are your bringing them with you?  I am having trouble thinking of ideas – besides the obvious ones already mentioned and I am might be having guests staying at other resorts?

@June232012 – Its a good idea!  I am worried that something would be damaged.   I have seen what they do to people’s luggage….I have even had my own bag damaged.  (I am thinking of incorporting a starfish into my favor/gift bags).  Me personally I am going to stuff as much as I can in my carry on and hope for the best!!

There are some great suggestions here.  May I add a water wallet to them?  I am including two water wallets in each Out of Town bag so guests can put their money, ID and room keys in.  They can throw the wallet around their neck and go.  They are waterproof too so perfect for keeping valuables safe and your person while in the pool.

I got mine for $1.04 each with the lanyard from CreativeIDSupply on Ebay.  I will be dressing them up with a little card inside that says “TO HAVE AND TO HOLD…Money, Keys and ID”.

We are also including different games in the bags (i.e. – crossword puzzles, playing cards, Uno cards, Scrabble Slam cards), inflatables (i.e. – beach balls, floaties for kids), Tropical Jelly Bellies (because they are Fiance fave), 5-hour energy drinks (because they were a staple in our relationship lol), a homemade hangover kit (with Tylenol, Immodium, Pepto, maybe an eye mask, breath mints), itinerary, gum and I think that’s it.
