Could you leave the bags plain and do a tag with your names/logo on it instead?  I realize your names wouldn’t be directly on the bag like your fiance wants, but maybe the silver lining is that guests would be more likely to use the bags again after your wedding.  You could personalize with name/logos everything you put in the bags, too.  Good luck, let us know how they turn out!

Did you try ironing on the image with a sheet or something to be in between the bag and the iron? This will transfer less heat which could help. Also, check the heat settings on your iron.

I did iron transfer on cotton tshirts and it took a lot of heat to stick-the highest setting. I did put a cloth between though. It still didn’t come out perfect. You might have to convince Fiance to go with a tag and emphasize the practicality and usability and longevity of giving a bag withOUT your name printed on it. It’s actually more thoughtful to some that way.

can you stitch anything into the bags? maybe make a patch, after ironing on the decal to an inexpensive fabric?

You could get stamps with letters and stamp your names. But since you don’t want names… I’ll go ahead and say I agree with you on that. If I’m getting a bag there’s a bigger chance I’ll carry around a generic shell than someone’s name that isn’t mine.

Perhaps the tags could be multi-purpose… with the guest names and your monogram on the other side?  Another option would be to stencil your monogram… a stencil can be made pretty easily with an exacto type knife using mylar… then you can use any color paint, plain, glittery or whatever you want to transform the bags without heat.  I used a stencil for our Out of Town bags (not a monogram… we didn’t want our guests to have to use our names/dates or similar either.)  We useed something thematic to our destination on a heavy duty nylon beach bag.
