So it looks like SO and I are leaning towards switching our Vegas wedding to a Jamaica wedding at an all-inclusive which has gotten me more excited about putting together Out of Town bags for all of our guests (think sunscreen, beach ball, frisbee, small area guide, personalized koozie, etc.)
What do you guys think of water wallets (not sure what else they are called, but basically they keep you money, id, etc. dry while in the water…see below) in the Out of Town bags?
Does anyone know where I can purchase personalized ones?

I think that’s a great idea! They have them on Oriental Trading in green, blue and yellow that you can personalize! 🙂

@dynamic_duo: Wow!!! Fabulous ideas! All of them! I definitely thought of the sunscreen, personalized water bottles and brochures but not the ibuprofen, snacks, or CD (wicked by the way). And I like getting “Jamaica” embroidered on the bags (was gonna do our names and wedding date but our guests may actually re-use the bag if it just says Jamaica on it…lol).
I have a few more ideas – personalized (or not) frisbee or inflatable beach balls (for the kids), floaties (the little arm ones for kids), map of the resort if available, personalized koozies (those styrofoam sleeves that go around your can or bottle to keep drinks cold and aloe (for those burns). What do you guys think?

Thanks @rachgirl82 and vonnegut1105! I figured if people are gonna pay all this money to celebrate our wedding in Jamaica, the least I can do is give them a great (and functional) goodie bag.
More suggestions welcome! We want to make it memorable and worthwhile for our guests and let them know we truly appreciate them being there with us.
