I think ours came in around $7.50/each.  I think the guests appreciated them, most of them told me they’d already eaten most of the snacks before the wedding 🙂

Too much. 🙂 But yes, they were greatly appreciated!

We had a destination/beach wedding… I included water, snacks (granola bars, small bag of chips), single-pot packages of good quality coffee (ordered from BocaJava.com) along with creamer/sweetener/stirrers, a local postcard with a stamp already on it, lip balm w/SPF, lotion (made locally)… and embroidered towels (from CottonFruit.com).

@Pappy8:  I think usually most people can keep them under 10… maybe 7 if they are really thrifty! 

Usually people use a canvas tote bag, you can get them cheap online.  Or else I’ve seen people do kraft gift bags, too.  Those always look more gifty (but if you’re putting water bottles in – they can break).

Ours came to about $3.50 a bag. We bought in bulk and repackaged in matching sealable plastic bags. Is amazing how much that saved and how much better it looked! I found canvas bags online for about .0.60 each! 

We had:

canvas bag

two bottles of water (we printed and applied our own labels)



2 bags of pretzels

hershey kisses

gold fish 

and I think something else… I forget though.

@lefeymw:  How many bags were you able to make for that price?

@lefeymw:  Where did you get the canvas bags from?  I couldn’t find anything for that price.
