They sound good! I’d do the bubbles and programs at the cermony if that’s where you want them to be used–I’m the type of girl that if I had them before hand, I’d forget.

sounds good! i would add a travel pack of aspirin though.

save the programs and bubbles for the ceremony, or people will forget them.

include the cards if you can afford them. it’s a nice touch, and cards are always nice while lounging at the beach or sitting on the plane.

Sounds great! I don’t think you need to add anything!

Sounds great! I agree with Kitzy, aspirin would be a nice thing to add. If you can afford it, maybe a small first aid kit too (they sell them at Dollar Tree).

I was also going to second asprin or ibuprofen tablets!

I think you have a lot of great stuff in the bags.  Your guests will be very touched by your thoughtfulness!

Mosquito lotion? I don’t know about Jamaica but those things make me paranoid in general…

Oooh what about aloe lotion in case of sunburns?? Also, make sure whatever snacks you put in are in factory sealed bags. There are often sugar ants that will swarm things that aren’t sealed.

I love the postcard idea! So sweet!

@dynamic_duo: Exactly. If your rooms have bar fridges, I would maybe let your guests know to put the snacks in the bar fridge just in case. If anyone has a ground floor or low floor room it’s likely more of a risk, but anything like a granola bar or chips that’s in its original sealed wrapper will likely be fine. If you were going to bring say homemade granola in a ziploc or twist tied bag I would say no, but it sounds like you’re going the safe route!

We did personlized water bottles also and our guests loved them! Those and the Out of Town bags my mother-in-law hand sewed got the most use.
