Is there a particular size, style or material you’re looking for?

You might want to check a local organization  like a library or scout group. they often sell reusable bags as fundraisers. you can be green and support you community! also orential trading sells bags that can be personalized.

uggh..i can’t find pictures of mine but i got the reusable bags from the christmas tree shop for $1 each.  They came in a few different styles that went great for my beach theme. I shoved a whole lot in there…a full size beach towel, 3 bottles of water, a bunch of muncies, tissues, bandaides, travel lotion, travel santizer, lint brush etc.

Not sure where you are located so i put a link to their stores.

they are that thin material that some reusable grocery bags are made of. They are plain, but the organza, ribbon, and a tag made from left over invitation materials dressed them up really nicely and didn’t take long to put together 🙂

I was able to catch these on sale at hobby lobby (I think I ended up paying $4-5 for a 4 pack): http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/4-pack-tote-bags-141382/

They are not the largest of bags, but they will fit a couple bottles of water, some snacks, and welcome letter/tourist info.  The material is canvas, so they are a little sturdier than the reusable grocery bag material.  We’re in Virginia, so I was planning on purchasing 3oz bags of Virginia Peanuts and baking some sort of southern dessert to include in the bags.

You can get canvas bags for .99 cents at cheaptotes.com.  They do screenprinting for pretty cheap, too.

I’m using Vistaprint for 70 screenprinted totes.  Their prices are a bit more than cheaptotes, but I have a Groupon for Vistaprint, so its actually cheaper.

Are the gable boxes big enough to fit a couple water bottles and some snacks?

Try your local grocery store or as suggested above the dollar store, etc.  Reusable bags are so cute and cheap these days that you might as well give something your guests can use on top of all the other goodies.

Ours were from our local grocery store but since we had a Chicago themed wedding they worked out perfect.
