We are going to have a lot of people coming in from out of town, so the bags have to be really inexpensive. I’ve seen some cute gift bag type bags like these:
… and I might use one of them. That said, in a perfect world I’d find something reusable. So, post a photo of the bag from your oot bag and let me know where you found it!

I got my screenprinted canvas Out of Town totes from Vistaprint with a few $17 for $70-of-merchandise Groupon. Cheaptotes.com is cheaper if you don’t have the coupon.

We’re using wicker baskets from the dollar store with some confetti in the bottom. Ours will only have a bottle of wine, wine glasses, olives, and chocolates.
Day of we’re handing out “don’t sweat the small stuff packs” like the little wedding emergency kits.

I pretty much cleaned out Dollar Tree as well when they had those beach bags.

We’re getting these. We’re not putting any logos on them permenantly, just gonna make a tag for them, so that people can reuse them after teh wedding. $50 bucks for 100 of them, including shipping.
Discount mugs has some great other tote choices as well. Any many other merchandise!

These are great! I love those beach bags. They may be a little too big for this stuff though. I’m going to start looking. Thanks!

I bought black canvas totes and iron on paper from Hobby Lobby so I could make reusable Las Vegas tote bags. The were probably about $2.50 each not including the transfer paper, so I’m sure you can find cheaper buying in bulk.

I bought white canvas bags from Michael’s and painted on gold candelabras onto each one to match our theme. I wish I had taken a photo of them, so dumb!

I got ours from Papermart, since I wanted a specific color (orange) that isn’t readily available- otherwise I’d check out Dollar Tree or Target first.
With a large Out of Town list, do yourself a big favor and keep them simple. We had one water per guest, and depending on how many nights they stayed depended on how many snacks they had. We bought most of the goodies from Sam’s Club.

We have a restaurant supply store near us, which was super helpful for this. We bought about 1000 white paper bags (like the sort that you might get donuts or farmer’s market stuff in) for about $13. We ended up double bagging them for sturdiness (1000 bags meant this was no prob), folding over the tops and stapling them, and I got cute labels in our wedding colors with our name and date using a Vistaprint coupon. So I spent maybe $20 in materials!
