    I think compromising on the color is better than compromising on the quality– I’d pay the little bit extra for the black bags– they look a lot nicer and will likely last longer.

    I would rather the black, sturdy one. It just looks nicer. And red looks fine on black, go Northeastern!

    I bought the second option (hadn’t seen the first!) but I will say, it’s not bad quality. It probably isn’t as nice as your first option (based on pics!) but mine is still just fine. My BMs still use theirs as most of us work in schools and use it to carry stuff in.

    I’d get the first one but they both look like nice bags!

    While your bridesmaids are going to use the totes again, unless they’re going to be lugging books around in them for years, the cheaper one is fine. So if the cheaper one is still pretty well made and is the color you want, go for that one. I found totes that were 12 for $12 (not personalized) and they held up just fine. I kept one and have used it for groceries. Unless there’s a clear flaw in the construction, the less expensive one will serve its purpose.

    @ProfessorGirl:  I totally agree!  I bought my BMs monogrammed bags and while I’m sure they’ll use them again, I doubt that they’ll use them HARD.  My Maid/Matron of Honor uses hers to tote clothes around in when she’s only staying 1 night somewhere or uses it as a beach bag or something like that.
