    JamaicaBridetoBee:  i am getting married at the Hyatt in Montego Bay on 10/1/16!! so i basically came to steal all your ideas hahaha  

    this bag is an awesome idea! personally, i think it looks “richer” unprinted… but the subtle white letters aren’t too bad at all. I would say go unprinted and maybe put a nice tag on it like the bottom pic has.

    I think I’d be more likely to reuse a plain bag, but you’re right that the nice white writing looks good, too!

    I like the writing, but I don’t know if I like the “One Love”. I’m not sure what that means? or why I’d want it written on my bag?  Maybe it means something to you and your guests (then do it!), but I think I’d just be confused.

    I did plan bags but made up cute tags to put in them with our theme and wedding date.  I used address labels on them that covered the whole thing to give it a “finished” look

    How about a plain bag, with tags attached to teh handle with ribbon…That way they can cut the tags off  after the wedding and reuse. I think One Love is wonderful…very appropriate.

    I vote for plain too.  I think they’d be more likely to get used again.

    I’d do plain and then attach a cute luggage tag in your wedding colors. That way they can remove it later on.

    JamaicaBridetoBee:  oh man, i am SO jealous, i suck at planning  haha kudos to you. you’ll definitely be the bride calmly sipping champange the morning of your wedding while you get your hair done haha and me, well, i’ll be running around the resort with curlers in looking for my other wedding shoe. sighhhh. so far, we’ve only reserved our rooms and ceremony and reception locations at the resort. but we are expecting like 100 guests, i am going to cut myself some slack and say that coordinating rooms for that many people took like all of my attention haha 

    also, about the writing on the bags, my old job used to be doing the promo items for a big company. we would order all different kinds of stuff and one thing i learned was that you have to be careful where you order stuff from. you definitely get what you pay for, especially when printing on harder fabrics, like a woven bag. it might leave less room for error (ie: uneven printing, messed up/peeling letters….etc) if you went plain bag with a tag or ribbon or luggage tag, something easier to make and get. i hope that makes sense…

    good luck! and best wishes for your Jamaican wedding!!

    OP, Your bag design is DEVINE!!! I’ve struggled with what to do for my guests and was thinking about all the bags I have that I never use! I think that if I were to receive yours, I’d most definitely use it again!!!!


    If you dont mind me asking, who is your bag vendor?

    The least expensive bag you can find.

    I personally have an oversupply of bags in my home, and the chance that I would pack yours in my suitcase and bring it home are pretty slim.

    Where’d you find the bags?  I too am getting married in October Montego bay.  This would be perfect and what I’m looking for.
