I just found an AMAZING deal on tote bags to use as our Out of Town bags, but I’m trying to figure out how many we need to buy. Should we give a bag to each guest individually? …or is it ok to just give one to each couple / family? Please advise. 🙂

I think it’s ok to give one to each couple/family and add in a few extra just in case! Awesome that you found a great deal… when you’re done buying, would you consider posting the site (if they’re online)? Edit: you totally don’t have to. I just wondered if you would! I need three for a project for christmas 🙂

I did mine individually but, I used disposable gift bags. If you are going to use one for family, I would put more items in than the ones for individuals.

We were planning on doing one per hotel room or one per couple. We may add in a few extras for families that have kids. I would also love to see the bags that you are looking at too if you are up for sharing!

Thanks for the feedback! I think we’ll probably do one per couple / family. For groups of single friends who are sharing a hotel room we will still give one per person though, so that each person can have a bag.
@FallFlowers — For the consumables in the bag (food, drinks, etc) we’ll definitely include enough for the number of people who will be sharing the bag. Thanks for the tip!
@cinemaparadiso — No problem at all. Of course I’ll share. The totebags are from discountmugs.com http://www.discountmugs.com/nc/tote-bags/1082/premium-tote-bag.htm. We’re going to order the blank tote bags. I really wanted to have LL Bean style tote bags as our Out of Town bags for our Maine wedding. Unfortunately, the price per bag only becomes really cheap with a large order. For 70+ bags you can get them for $1.79 per bag, which is by far the best price that I’ve seen.

I also did Out of Town bags per hotel room.
