    Wow! That's a lot! My mom is making our hotel bags (she offered) and I'll tell her she needs to step up her game (kidding).

    Costco, Dollar Tree, and 5-Below are epic for the cost cutting to add the extras! Clear polish, meds, mini sewing and first aide =Dollar Tree

    😂 I'm in the same exact boat! Everyone keeps being shocked at how detailed things are but I'm just channeling my excitement into the details

    In mine, (Costa Rica wedding) I'm having - personalized matches, personalized mints (both from e-favormart), tums, advil, sunscreen, bug spray, espresso beans, a little bracelet for the females that says "be happy" on it (free + shipping on WISH website), incense, hair ties, hand cream, and a candle.

    Thanks! Given that most things I can get from Costco and break apart, or get cheaply from Dollar Tree/5–Below. So they sound like they have a lot, and do, but they don’t cost a lot and will be memorable.
    Our wedding is a destination wedding for more than 1/2 of our group. So I want to go a little extra with them, or at least the ones who are the super close people... I’ll prob have the 2 tiers of bags as bad as that sounds- can’t see dong 150+ of these!!!!
